I want to press just one button on my browser (or desktop) and have it bring up the "new note" page on Evernote.com so I could quickly jot down ideas.

How can I do that?

I have an icon on my bookmark bar in Chrome that opens up a new note.

I use the link: https://www.evernote.com/edit?newNote

Works for me!


Evernote web clipper information can be found here;


Device specific links are here;


Hope this helps.

  • That's a good temp solution, but what I'm looking for is a quick way to bring up a place to write a long note. Thanks for this. Jun 4, 2011 at 0:28

If Evernote is running (even in the background), you can use the global hotkey/shortcut Ctrl + Alt + N to switch to Evernote and start a new Note. This works even when on browser is the active window.

OK, this is not just one button, but 3 buttons, but you can setup a new global hotkey as well (setup a one-button global hotkey in Windows)

See the shortcuts support page for more info.


i use an autohotkey script as quicklaunch shortcut :

; sends Evernote's "new note" keyboard shortcut then exits send ^!n ExitApp
