How to add content in Evernote for Windows

There are a several different ways to add content to your Evernote account from your Windows computer, aside from just typing text in a new note window. All of them are fairly straightforward and most can use Evernote's global keyboard shortcuts.

Evernote Helper

The Evernote Helper lets you create a note at any time, no matter what you’re doing on your computer, by clicking the elephant in the menu bar in your system tray near your clock. The simplest way to create a new note is to right-click Evernote Helper and choose New Note. Once you’re done with your thought, your note will sync with the rest of your Evernote account. You can also create screenshots or copy and paste selections from the Evernote Helper menu.

Paste to Evernote

After you copy something to the system clipboard, you can paste it into a note. This will work with just about any application on your computer and is a very simple way to quickly save things to Evernote.

Drag and drop

Adding images, PDFs, and other files to Evernote is as easy as dragging them into an Evernote note. This will attach the file to that note. You can also attach files by clicking the attachment button (paperclip) in the note toolbar and choosing a file from your file browser.

Evernote Web Clipper

Evernote Web Clipper is a simple extension for your web browser that lets you capture full-page articles, images, selected text, important emails, and any web page that inspires you. These clips will be saved to your Evernote account so you can always find them with Evernote's robust tagging and searching options.
