Left Panel Resize

Mark JL

Recommended Posts

Since the most recent Windows client update (, I have found that every time I open Evernote the left panel resizes to its narrow, default size. I widen it out to where I can read everything, but even if I simply minimize the window, it resets the panel width to the narrow default when I go back to the program and I must resize it again. And again. And again. And again.


This happens both on my WIndows 7 work computer and on my personal Windows 10 laptop.


Is there some solution to this that I have been unable to figure out? It's starting to annoy me a bit. I have been unable to find any discussion of this topic elsewhere in the forum or online, so maybe it's only me. If anyone has a clue to help me resolve it, I would be grateful.

Evernote keeps some window size option settings in the Windows registry - not sure whether this is one of them.  Best way to find out is -

  1. Set the windows layout as you prefer it.
  2. File > Exit Evernote
  3. Restart Evernote
  4. Check whether it remembered your layout...

If so,  you can expect that setup to stick unless and until you File > Exit with a different format selected.

So simple. And yet so hard to figure out.


It worked. Now I know! Always good to learn new things.


Thanks a ton!


** UPDATE **


It works when I close and re-open Evernote no problem - even if I use the close button. But if I minimize the window and then restore, it still goes back to the default panel sizes.

Hmmn - limited success...  might be worth running this by Support.  As you'll know Basic users don't get email support,  (except for bug reports,  or payment / account access issues)  but if you're Plus or Premium submit a request by choosing the appropriate option in the first dropdown after logging in here > https://www.evernote.com/SupportLogin.action

Update - I contacted support, and received this reply:

Maybe there will be a fix soon.
