  1. Hello, @CristiPro. Thank you for the FIX. Have a Samsung S8... did not realize I had enabled DARK MODE... G-searched and found HowToGeek article "How to Enable a Night Mode in Android to Reduce Eyestrain" to accelerate my learning curve... disabled NITE MODE... opened EN... and voilà!!!... white background was back in business!!! A superdeeduper thank you! I hope this proves helpful to others in pain! LOL! ~ Alan
  2. 10-4. Understood. Interesting article just the same. ,) Alan
  3. Howdy, @CalS: I have not yet replaced Chrome... EN external links still not functional... I just found this article about Brave that may be of interest: Brave Browser Sacrifices Security https://securityboulevard.com/2019/02/brave-browser-sacrifices-security/ I'm sorry to see this unfavorable news when user hopes have been so high. Alan
  4. Hello, @skala... I was waiting for you to respond to @gazumped 's post: "That particular post and all its comments seem to be 7 years old..."
  5. Back to the PRIMARY question of this thread: Has anyone figured out how to PORTABLIZE Evernote and keep it current portablized following periodic updates? THX. ~ Alan
  6. @ CalS : 10-4. Understood. Based on the following (3) article paragraphs (below)... I am going to support Firefox Quantum's priority for SUBSCRIBERS first. Thank you for thinking out loud with me. Appreciate. ~ Alan Chrome’s Dominant Market Share Gives Google Power Google has been pushing the boundaries on their browsers, by allowing more overt surveillance to show itself to end-users. We saw it in late 2018 when Google forced users to sign in to Chrome when they signed to any Google services like Gmail. The market dominance of Chrome (and Chromium) is what allows Google to make bad changes with impunity. Other browsers like Mozilla Firefox have recently made significant leaps forward in speed and efficiency. Firefox is open-source and developed to be fast and responsible. It respects your privacy and doesn’t limit what you can do. If you like uBlock Origin and uMatrix, those extensions will continue to exist on the free and open web. If this is the last straw for you as a Chromium browser user, feel free to check out our Firefox Hardening Guide to see how to make Firefox more private and safer than Chrome.

  7. Howdy, @CalS and Members: I just found (2) articles which spell unfortunate news for Chromium users who utilize ad blocking as I do: Chromium to Weaken Ad-Blockers – Impacts Chrome, Edge and Brave Browsers Google rejects Brave (BAT) ad campaign as “Malicious or unwanted software”. : CryptoCurrency I hope this proves helpful. ~ Alan
  8. Hello, Dave-in-Decatur: YEP. Appears to be same issue... however NOT yet resolved. THX. ~ Alan
  9. @CalS... I just followed these instructions... External LINK Issue still not resolved. THX. ~ Alan
  10. Howdy, @CalS: After reading many reviews on Brave browser... I'm inclined NOT to install it because of the LIMITATION it places on extensions... many of which I need. External LINK Issue still not resolved. THX. ~ Alan
  11. Thank you to: @AverySays : "Default browser: Google Chrome is your default browser I have switched MS Edge with Chrome and vice-versa... RESULT: WIN EN external links still do not open in reregistered Chrome. Appreciate the tip... Got any more? LOL! THX. ~ Alan
  12. Howdy, @CalS: Appreciate much... am good to go with install today... especially after finding there's a PORTABLE version available: (G-SEARCH | brave browser portable) FYI: Will report if Brave resolves external link issue I'm having. THX! Alan
  13. Hello, @CalS. Appreciate. I will look into the PROS and CONS of the Brave browser and get back with an update. THX. ~ Alan UPDATE-1 | Brave Browser Review 2019 – What Makes Brave Browser Special? UPDATE-2 | video - Brave Browser Review! (Brave vs Chrome!)
  14. Hello, @keisoko, Thank you for the suggestion. Your hunch is CORRECT... much appreciate! 1. I did a G-SEARCH | reregister Chrome as default browser | 2. I followed instructions of this video to reregister Chrome. 3. I changed default browser to Edge: - EN external links open without issue in MS Edge... 4. I change again default browser to Chrome: EN external links did not open in reregistered Chrome. ALSO: I am now going to research this ARTICLE: “Google Chrome is unresponsive, relaunch now” [Fix] So this does appear to be a Chrome issue... however I much prefer using Chrome over Edge. Any SUGGESTIONS on how to FIX this Chrome issue?...( because Chrome did work previously). Thank you much in advance! ~ Alan
  15. Hello, @dconnet: Thanks for getting back. LINK CONFIRMED OK (R-click > Edit) NO issues yet discovered with link functionality in other WIN applications, incl. Chrome. This is the 2ND time I have encountered this particular issue with WIN EN. Any more ideas??? THX. ~ Alan UPDATE: I just updated WIN EN to: (308273) Public (CE Build ce-62.1.7539) FYI: Disfunctional link issue still persists. I have also cleared Chrome CACHE... shut down laptop... issue still persists. In addition, here is a G-SEARCH | evernote links not working | This well documents a LINK functionality problem for many EN users. Thanks much for the assistance!
  16. Hello, @Dave-in-Decatur : Thanks for getting back. I have rebooted Chrome, Evernote and Windows multiple times... EN links still not functional. THX. ~ Alan
  17. Hello, @jefito: Thanks much for your rapid response. My current WIN EN version: (308094) Public (CE Build ce-58.1.6897) EXAMPLE: Crunchbase Evernote | www.crunchbase.com/organization/evernote | Thank you much and hoping for a FIX! ~ Alan
  18. Howdy: Might there now be a PORTABLE Win EN version for? (308094) Public (CE Build ce-58.1.6897) ... OR... a method to create such a portable? THX. ~ Alan
  19. Hello, Members: Sometime in the last week... ALL WIN EN external links have become UNCLICKABLE (broken, non-functional)... and therefore do NOT open in Chrome browser. Workaround: Have to COPY link > paste in browser. A FIX (as close to yesterday as possible) would sure be appreciated. Thanks much in advance! ~ Alan
  20. Hello, EN Members: Today for the 1st time... I was unable to update WIN EN with Evernote_6.16.4.8094.exe. so I conducted a G-SEARCH: site:evernote.com specified site account already exists ... which led me to gazump's referral LINK ... who aptly referred to: Windows Error Code 2732 workarounds I read the thread and decided to go with the simplest potential fix as discussed by gbarry's post from March 22, 2013: I am an ADVANCED Windows User... very comfortable in working with the WIN Registry... so I decided to search for the above REG entries. Instead in REGEDIT, I used Registrar Registry Manager, which is much faster and feature robust... which found multiple entries of E190C2EAF5FC03E468956D042EA3B899... I created a Windows Restore Point then I deleted the E190C2EAF5FC03E468956D042EA3B899 entry then rebooted then clicked on the Evernote_6.16.4.8094.exe file to test if this had solved the install update problem then updated Windows Restore Point Wallah!!! This 1st attempt worked without a hitch. No message "specified account already exists" No roll back of installation I am grateful to Gbarry and gazumped for the benefit of this quick resolution! Thank you... ~ Alan
  21. Hello, gazumped! Thank you... to the rescue even in NOV. 2018. Comment available at your referring LINK: Windows Error Code 2732 workarounds Appreciate! ~ Alan See: update
