Evernote Windows 10 "Not Responding" & Freezes in Evernote for Windows Issues (Versions 6.25.1 and under) Posted May 2 I tried all sorts of things on several Windows machines. It was very frustrating. The only way I could fix this and make it stick was with an SSD. And an SSD installed in on old machine really does speed it up tremendously. I don't know why Evernote doesn't fix their apps (on Windows, and it's much worse on Android) to correct this. This is a solvable design problem. If they'd stop adding unneeded features and actually focus on fixing major flaws they would have a professional and credible product that didn't require their users go crazy trying to make it work right. It's not hard to install an SSD as long as your laptop is designed to easily replace the disk. I did it on a laptop that required me to totally disassemble it but it was still worth it. You can do it in a couple of hours, it's not hard, and there are plenty of guides on the web to show you how to do it. Your can use Macrium Reflect Free to clone your current HDD so absolutely nothing changes except for the speed. My suggestion is that you give it a try.
