Become an Evernote power user: 10 must-know tips

Christopher Null | April 11, 2013
You can already bend Evernote's notes, notebooks, and stacks to your will. And maybe you've directed your team to use Evernote Business. Evernote is friendly when you're getting started with it, but the more you use it, the more your notes can pile up, threatening your productivity.

Pick up keyboard shortcuts

Only a rube uses the mouse to get around desktop apps. The following keyboard shortcuts help you use Evernote even more efficiently on a PC. (The commands are similar on a Mac. And you'll find even more shortcuts on Evernote's site.)

Ctrl-Alt-N: Start a new note. (In Windows, this is a global shortcut, meaning that it works from any application as long as Evernote is open.)

Windows-A: Pastes selected text into a new or open note. (Global shortcut.)

F9: Synchronize.

Ctrl-N: New note.

Ctrl-Shift-N: New notebook.

Ctrl-Shift-T: New tag.

Ctrl-Shift-E: Send a note or notes by email.

Ctrl-Shift-C: Insert a checkbox.

Alt-Shift-D: Insert the current time and date.

You can redefine global shortcuts for Windows from within the Evernote desktop application under Tools > Options > Hot Keys.
