Tip to create a windows desktop shorcut from a note


Recommended Posts

hi,

Please, is there a simple way to send from a evernote note as  a shortcut link to windows desktop by drag and drop ?

I know that you can use the evrnote share feature and then use the clipboard and then paste it to windows desktop but it's a fastidious process.

Thanks for the tip...

This may be different in Windows, but I wouldn't use the share function to get a link to a note for the desktop
It adds a level of overhead; creating a public link etc

I would use the simple Copy Links function.
This also gives you the option of a in-app or in-browser link

As @DTLow said - there's no easy function,  but the simple way (IMHO) is just to Ctrl-right-click the note in List view and choose 'copy note link'.  To create a desktop shortcut in Windows you then have to right click the desktop and choose New > Shortcut and paste the link into the form you see.  Rename it to something appropriate and you're done!
