Web Clipper stopped working in Chrome -- My Fix

Recommended Posts

Web Clipper didn't work in Chrome on my Windows PC when I returned from vacation; clicking the toolbar icon did nothing.  Don't know if this is significant, but I had used Evernote and Chrome (not Web Clipper though) on my Android devices while away.


Experimentation following advice in other threads here got it working again.  I disabled/re-enabled the Web Clipper in Chrome extensions (may or may not be necessary, but it did no harm).  Then I checked the "Allow access to file URLs" checkbox.  Now clicking the toolbar icon produced results.  I was required to sign in (although I had an Evernote tab open in Chrome).  Then I had to refresh the page I was trying to clip.  Clicked the icon again and SWEET SUCCESS!

Thanks for coming back to me, much appreciated.  Unfortunately there are no hidden buttons on my browser toolbar, so am still stuck.  I know Evernote is installed as I can right click and clip a page to Evernote.  Any further suggestions would be welcome.

I had the same problem of Web clipper suddenly quit working (attempting to clip to an EN file,then the clip not showing in the file).  My first clue of a glitch was not all my EN notebooks were showing as an option to send the clip to.  Found out I had two EN accounts.  Don't really know how that happened but one account had all my notes in it, the other had only those notes from when I first opened an account.  The web clipper was saving my clips to this earlier account.  After saving files from the earlier account to the latest one, I deleted the files and then permanently deleted them from the trash folder and then deactivated the earlier account.  After deactivating the earlier account, I now have only one account and all my clips are going to the right place (and showing up in the right place).
