I just installed evernote desktop on my windows 8.1 machine. I logged in as the wrong user. Now I am logging out, with only 1 accidental note in it. So certainly not a corrupted data base Once I log out, it freezes. It does not log out. When I click on the file menu, the dreaded "not responding" I also have evernote touch for windows. There, windows logged me in automatically, with my hotmail account. Search showed me that to change accounts, I have to uninstall it. Wish me luck! But I believe it does not have all the features of the desktop. Maybe we all should switch to a competitor's product? Do we have a choice?
