The best way to start using Evernote effectively is to start creating notes. A note is just what it sounds like—any piece of information you want to save for later.

Get started in 3 easy steps:

Step 1Create a new note

  • Mac

    Click the green + New Note button at the top of the left panel.

  • Windows

    Click the green + New Note button at the top of the left panel.

  • iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch

    Tap the green New note button.

  • Android

    Tap the green New note button.

  • Web

    Click the green + New Note button at the top of the left panel.

 

Step 2Add some content

Once you've created a note, give it a name so it's easy to find later, and enter some text. Unless you choose otherwise, new notes are saved to the default notebook.

  • Mac

    Type your search query into the search bar above the note list.

    Type your search query into the search bar above the note list.
