If it does? What are they?

The most important shortcuts for me are: search & new

4 Answers 4


I note that some limited keyboard shortcuts/hotkeys work with the current version (Feb 2017).

The ones I have found are:

  • bold ctrl-b
  • italics ctrl-i

I've searched for an official list, but there doesn't appear to be one. This could be because different browsers and platforms may have conflicting shortcuts.

Eg: In the list of keyboard shortcuts for Evernote for Windows ctrl-e centres text, but in Chrome browser it will shift focus to the search bar.


There is a Chrome extension that offers this functionality;


... add gmail like keyboard shortcuts to Evernote ...

Hope this helps

    It has a rating of 1.6 stars out of 5 - so not really a good solution at this time.

None of the extensions worked for me so I wrote my own called Evercuts. It's really pretty simple but it does most of what I need. (FYI its only available for chrome)

Toggle Fullscreen
Move Note
Delete Note
Copy Note Internal Link
Open note in new tab
Open note in new window
Navigate the notes up/down

The above shortcuts are configurable via chrome://extensions/shortcuts

You can also Alt+Click on a note to open it fullscreen in a new window.

The code is available on my GitHub or you can install directly from the Chrome webstore.
