Manage your desktop and web preferences

New settings menu

The Settings page in your Evernote application allows you to manage your desktop and web preferences for the following features:

  • Calendar. Customize your calendar notification settings, and quickly access your account settings to manage connected calendar accounts.
  • Import folders. Automatically import files from selected folders on your computer.
  • Sidebar. Show or hide note counts, recent notes, and shortcuts in the left navigation menu.
  • Note. Choose whether you want your cursor to start in the note body or the title, and whether or not you want checklist items crossed out when completed.
  • Notebook. Choose the default notebook where you’d like newly created notes, saved emails, and web clips to be saved automatically.
  • Tasks. Choose the default note where new tasks will be saved to, enable default task reminders, and select up to 5 pre-set time periods for when you’d like to receive a reminder.
