  1. Ta. I can't see that being a problem - I can poke around and find the Windows equivalents, as long as the model/principles are the same. It's the concept of how to use these damned tags to simulate simple folders that is beating me at the moment, and if these guys has actually done it (rather than the others just asserting that tags is all that's needed, with no backup), that's what I need to see.
  2. Yes, all your good help now makes a lot more sense - thank you very much. I'll now see if I can work through the article by @JMichaelTX.
  3. The OP has now (re?)discovered there are two ways of accessing Evernote from Windows 10, and is following the advice to use the desktop client, (308292) Public (CE Build ce-62.1.7539). The OP is also going to follow the concrete help from @JMichaelTX in his article about "pseudo-notebooks" to see if that gives instrructions for how to create/emulate a folder hierarchy of notes.
  4. Ooh - that looks promising - thank you! I shall read through your article at the weekend and see how it works as a hierarchy of folders of notes. I note the peculiar names that these have - I assume the article will explain what the syntax is there, and why it is needed. This is very much appreciated - thank you. I can't look at it tonight, unfortunately - I have already lost two evenings this week into trying to work out how to make a sensible, simple folder hierarchy in Evernote, and am behind on my studies!
  5. I am connecting to Evernote using Chrome, from Windows 10. I'd not realised* there was another way in Windows. Let me hunt around. Thanks for spotting that. * Or maybe I used to know, many years ago when I first started this saga, but had forgotten.
  6. Thanks, @s2sailor. I did see that in the other thread (I am now regretting following the direction to move this to a new thread, as we seem to be discussing it in both places). That doesn't work for me here, but that's OK - I am sure I can figure that part of it out. It's the principles of how to use nested tags to simulate a hierarchy of folders/notebooks that I want to do.
  7. Your patience, persistence and politeness are much appreciated, but I'm afraid that doesn't work here. Hovering over "Tags" in the LH doesn't give a + symbol. I see the tags only in the RH pane. The only place I can add tags is from a note. But don't worry about this - I am confident that I can dig into Evernote and the documentation and find how to do this. It's hhow to use them to give the multi-level folders that I amm struggling with.
  8. Yeah, for which thanks. Unfortunately, that doesn't work in Windows. But I am confident I will find out how to create nested tags in Evernote from Windows. I am more needing instructions on how to use those nested tags to simulate a hierarchy of folders or notebooks or whatever, with my notes in leaf nodes.
  9. Not sure where to find that. Just whatever the current one is, I guess.
  10. Yes. You have posted that at least twice. I have no idea how to use that hierarchy of tags (even supposing it is possible in Windows - I am having no luck) to simulate folders that I can put notes in and browse. I cannot see the connection between your hierarchy and !Thing, _Wotsit, .hoojah and tags:notebook.name.tag.thing that CSal posted.
  11. Thanks, but that doesn't work here - I can't pick up and drag a tag. It just selects the text on the screen. In this screenshot, I tried to drag tag "Egypt 6 - W1" to "Coursera - GIS", but no dice.
  12. Windows 10, but I don't think that the principles I want to understand can be version-specific. What I want to understand is how to use tags to create (or simulate) a hierarchy of folders or nested notebooks or sub-notebooks or sections or whatever you wish to call them, as you and others have been saying is possible.
  13. I have been directed to move here (from the long thread about a feature request for a proper folders/notebooks/sections hierarchy) my request for someone to explain how to use the tag hierarchy to implement/simulate a nested hierarchy of folders, notebooks, sections, subsections, etc. It is common in that thread for people to just says "tags can do this", but no-one seems to be able to offer an explanation of how to do it. I am not necessarily asking people to put in time to explain it themselves - just point me to the instructions that explain how to do this.
  14. Sadly, no such item in the right menu here. OOI, are you using Window or Mac?
  15. Thanks. I'll clear some time at the weekend to read through that properly and dig into this some more. It does seem to have a very steep learning curve, compared with a simple folders/nesting model. I started looking at this maybe 2 years ago, when I moved to a paid subscription, but have so far not been able to use Evernote for anything I wanted it for because I can't get this sorted.
