Yes, it is easy to do.

  1. Create the note in Evernote.
  2. Click the Note menu, hold down the Ctrl key, and click Copy Note Link. This will copy a link for the note and place it on the Windows clipboard.
  3. In the Windows folder, right-click and select New, and then Shortcut.
  4. Paste in the note link that you copied to the clipboard in step 2. The link will start with evernote:///view/. If instead it starts with https://www.evernote.com/, go back to step 2 and be sure to hold the Ctrl key while clicking Copy Note Link.
  5. Click Next, and give the shortcut any name that you wish.
  6. Click Finish.

Now when you click on the shortcut, the note will open in the Evernote program.
