Never mind...it was just the shortcut.
I have the Evernote Desktop version 184.108.40.20632 installed on my Windows 8.1 laptop. The shortcut on my desktop re-installs the desktop version every time I click it instead of just opening the program. Is this just a shortcut issue or is this "normal". I tried this before and ended up just going back to the web version. Thanks for any input/direction anyone can give on this.
