Clip web pages
1. Start clipping
To start clipping, launch the Web Clipper by clicking the elephant from your browser toolbar. In Internet Explorer, you may need to add the 'Evernote 5' button to the toolbar, and click the greater-than signs ('>>') to expand the toolbar to display the button.
2. Select a clip type
Select a clip type from the available options, depending on your content and layout preferences. Some sites, such as Amazon and LinkedIn, support special clip formats that allow you to select which sections of the page you'd like to save.
Note: Support for web clip types vary across browsers
Choose from the following options:
Automatically detect and clip the main section of a blog, news article, or webpage. Ignore everything else on the page. To modify the area of the webpage captured, press the + or - buttons on the screen, or use the arrow keys on your keyboard.
Enjoy a better reading experience on your favorite blogs and news sources. Clear away the formatting and layouts so you can focus on the content, with less distraction.
Save a static copy of an entire page if you want to refer back to the original format and layout of the page, with all its design and navigational elements.
Want to remember a site without clipping the entire page? Save the URL, an auto-generated thumbnail from the page, and a snippet of text. Add comments to the clip and recall what was inspiring or informative.
Take a static snapshot of a page as it appears on the screen. Once you've captured the screenshot, you can crop the image and add text, shapes, stamps and other visual callouts.
Due to the restrictions set by the browser, this is unavailable for Firefox.
If you've opened a PDF document in your browser, you can save the entire PDF document as an attachment to a new note in your Evernote account.
Select some text or pictures in a web page before opening the Web Clipper. Only the text or images you've selected are saved to Evernote.
Custom clips for popular sites
Save specially formatted clips of popular sites, such as LinkedIn, to Evernote. Click checkboxes to select only the sections of the page you want to keep. Review a clean version of your clips as an editable note you can add comments to later.

3. Organize clips
Once you click Save, Web Clipper smart filing automatically stores both the contents and the URL of a web page into Evernote, as a note in your default notebook.
If you'd prefer not to save to your default notebook, you can specify how you'd like to organize your clips before saving them to Evernote:
- Title: Rename the default name given to the web clip.
- Notebook: Select a notebook where you want to save your web clip. Evernote attempts to predict the most likely notebook based on how you've organized notes in the past.
- Tags: Assign one or more keyword (tags) to your web clip. To remove a tag, click the 'X' next to the keyword/phrase.
- Remark: Add additional comments or notes that will help you remember what you've clipped.
Once saved to Evernote anything you've clipped is fully searchable, including text in images. Enter any terms, phrases, or tags from your clips to find your clipped notes.
