Install an older version of Evernote

Note: This article details the installation of an older version of Evernote. There will be no future updates or bug fixes in older versions of Evernote, including Evernote Legacy. If you are having trouble with this app, our Support team may recommend that you update Evernote to the newest version.


We recognize that there may be some scenarios where it’s necessary or desirable to use an older version of Evernote. This version is only temporarily available while we work to bring a few of the legacy features to our new apps.

As such, the Evernote Legacy app, available for Mac and Windows, is downloadable for a limited time to support customers transitioning to the newest version of Evernote (Version 10.0 and above).

The Evernote Legacy app can be installed side-by-side with the new Evernote app, and is denoted by a gray Evernote icon.
