Moving to the top of the note list

Recommended Posts

Frequently, after doing a search or some other activity in EN for Windows I find that I am somewhere in the middle of a long list of notes. I want to move to the top of the notes to my most recents, but I can't seem to figure out how to do that quickly. If I click on the column headings to sort by when created or updated, I'm stick stuck somewhere in my notes list, and I have thousands. To get back to the top I find myself having to tediously scroll or drag the note bar to get to the top which takes time. In the past I never seem to have this problem (or just didn't notice it), but lately it happens to me frequently. I'm using EN for Windows (6.4.2.3788) on a Windows 10 machine.

Thanks for any help.

Try using the "Go back in history" toolbar button (it's a '<' on your toolbar; if it's not there, you should add it, it's useful). Click once to go back, or hold it down to see the whole history. Alt+LeftArrow is a shortcut to go back in history.

A tip: it's more useful to use search to filter your note list down to something more manageable 10 +/- 5 or so notes. Trawling through long lists is tedious and slow. Using tags can help with this a lot.

You can use the home key when in the note list to go to the top, end key to go to the bottom.

Hi there, I fully understand your hope and expectation. I noted that it will become a nightmare if the note's content becomes too long (just like a super long list or storybook.) EN users do need an efficient way to shuttle between different sections and paragraphs. So, let users set up anchors/links wherever they need, then it will much reasonable and beneficial for users to go to the specific places IN THE SAME NOTE, instead of scrolling up to the top or down to the bottom. (we all know the shortcut key for doing that.) I have informed EN if EN could improve this part of the technique. Just in case, I want to make my point clear, here is the original message that I have sent.

"Hi there. Although Evernote users can set lots of tags or keywords into different notes OR they can copy an internal link into another note. However, once the content of the note becomes too long, then it will be inconvenient to go back to the top of the note. Thus, I want to suggest that Evernote should have a tool or a function to let users set a "go to top" or "note's its own internal shortcut" which will be much beneficial for users to return to the top of the note, instead of scrolling back to the top. In other words, if people can set some internal links in different sections, it will be easier to shuttle between different sections and paragraphs in THE SAME note. Sounds pretty useful, right?"
