  1. works fine on Windows 7 32-bit. The only changes I've noticed from the penultimate version are the gray icon and the branding as Evernote Legacy.
  2. Shane, it'd be nice if your installer checked to see if the user was running Windows 10 BEFORE it blew away the existing Evenote installation. I'm on Windows 7 32-bit, and your installer deleted my entire Evernote installation AND THEN decided it couldn't install Evernote 10 (giving only a cryptic message that no appropriate file-association was set), leaving me with NO EVERNOTE AT ALL. Fortunately, I'd set a Windows restore point before doing the install, but sheesh.
  3. Thanks for the feedback and suggestions, everyone! I've updated my instructions at the comments in the EN-color.txt file. The new instructions are now the VERY FIRST message in this thread: https://discussion.evernote.com/forums/topic/86645-solution-to-not-having-white-background-for-notes
  4. Hi, @Shagun. You don't get SFK to run the batch file; it's the other way around, you run the batch file and it in turn runs SFK (a batch file is a batch -- a bunch, a group -- of commands you want the computer to execute in the order they're listed in the batch file from first line to last). Hare's a draft of the bullet-list instructions you've asked for. NOTE THAT YOU SHOULD DOWNLOAD EN-color.txt AGAIN FROM THIS MESSAGE, as I've made some changes to it (mostly adding extra documentation inside that file, but also a couple of important things). Once a few people have tried thi
  5. RavBoy, start over with a fresh copy of Evernote.exe and a fresh copy of my batch file AND JUST RUN THE BATCH FILE. Please stop editing it, stop removing things, and stop changing things. THE BATCH FILE WORKS; ALL THE CODE IS IN THE CORRECT FORMAT; CHANGE NOTHING. The best way to get a fresh copy of Evernote.exe -- one we can be sure you haven't modified already -- is to simply reinstall Evernote; all your notes and notebook structure will be preserved. As to the color of the note list, AFTER you've seen what my picks actually look like, you might want to investigate further, but it'
  6. RavBoy, sfk.exe is completely free of Trojans, viruses, and other malware. What BitDefender is detecting is that sfk.exe has the capability of modifying other files on your hard drive, including other .exe files. And, yes, it does; indeed, that's the whole point of sfk.exe -- it allows you to edit and modify files, even non-document ones such as .exe or .dll files. In the case of the usage of it by my batch file, it replaces some white or off-white color coding in evernote.exe with different colors; that's the point of my batch file. Turn off BitDefender, and download sfk.exe then
  7. RavBoy, please try actually running my batch file. Don't try to do it yourself from the command line. As blakeshpere has pointed out, you're mistyping the commands in the batch file when you're entering them by hand at the command line. You are making this more difficult than it needs to be by NOT using the canned solution I provided. My batch file (attached again) say: sfk rep Evernote.exe -firsthit -text "/-webkit-touch-callout:text;/background-color:#B2b1B3; /" -yes You've added two spaces to it, and so of course it doesn't work. Please use the line VERBATIM as above -
  8. Hi, everyone. I'm the original poster in this thread. I've figured out how to change the background color for the note list (the pane where you see snippet view, card view, or thumbnail view) in addition to changing the background color of notes (as displayed on screen; no change is made to your actual notes). As before, you'll need the free utility Swiss File Knife to make the required patches to Evernote.exe; you can get it here: http://stahlworks.com/dev/swiss-file-knife.html I've also added extensive commentary to the batch file that makes the patches, so open it up in a text editor fi
  9. Oh, come on, DTlow. You do this EVERY SINGLE TIME. You've got some compulsion (1) to pretend that votes here in any way, shape, or form influence Evernote's development priorities, and (2) to pretend that a desire for a night-mode / dark-mode (or any subset of it) is something hardly anyone wants. Seriously, I know getting that posting count up is a great high, but these boilerplate poo-pooings of what many, many, many users have been asking for for many, many, many years accomplish nothing BUT incrementing your counter. Let our voices be heard; save yours for when you have something pr
  10. It's not actually a flower, although it's certainly not a cleanly designed icon. It's a picture of a desktop in-box (complete with the finger notch used to dig out papers when the in-box is full to the brim), and an arrow pointing down into it, confusingly and pointlessly surrounded by a rectangle with three rounded corners and one non-rounded one. But what it's trying to convey is: "In the absence of any other instruction from you, this notebook is where I'm putting stuff." So, yes, it's the marker of the default notebook.
  11. Unbelievable, isn't it, Andre? Evernote is simply awful in this regard, a literal pain to use.
  12. I've never seen anything like that. My guess is that it's some sort of virus checker that is noting (quite rightly) that the binary code of the Evernote.exe file has been changed from some previously scanned version. I'm on Windows 7 32-bit; could that be a Windows 10 thing? Are you using a third-party virus scanner? If so, there may be a way to tell it to allow Evernote.exe to run as an exception to its normal rules.
  13. Hi, eric99. Whether or not you have Beta features enabled should make no difference; the patch will work with that feature either on or off. I'm not familiar with the phrase "side by side configuration error." What exactly is going wrong?
  14. Hi, @Don Dz . When playing around with this solution, just make a backup of Evernote.exe -- that one file -- before trying different colors. Then, rather than reinstalling the whole Evernote program, you can just copy the backup Evernote.exe back into the Evernote program folder. My own version of a batch file to automate that is as follow; you can just put these lines at the beginning of the batch file that modifies the program: C: CD \ CD \Progra~1\Evernote\Evernote REM This command makes a backup copy of Evernote.exe, just in case: copy Evernote.exe Evernote.ok As for trying
