Editor’s Note: As of April 29, 2015, the Evernote features described in this blog post have changed. Please reference our comparison page for a current list of features and pricing levels.
Every so often our engineers introduce a feature that has me staring at my screen slack-jawed, wondering how in the world that sort of magic is even possible. Today is one of those days. Evernote Web now lets you drag and drop files from your desktop into notes when using Google Chrome or Safari.
No way?!? That’s so cool.
You have two options:
- Grab a file from your desktop and drag and drop it onto a notebook in the left-hand notebook panel. This will create a new note containing just that file.
- Open a new note and drag the file into the note. When you drag the file over the note, you will see a green bar appear along the top of the note. Drop it on that green bar.

Don’t forget, free users can attach images, audio, and PDFs. Premium users can attach any file type, up to 50MB.
Sharing and collaboration
Evernote Web allows you to share your notebooks with individuals or the world. Evernote Premium users can grant others the right to edit notes in these shared notebooks. The drag and drop feature works for these shared notebook, as well. Learn more about our sharing features here.
We currently support Google Chrome and Safari. We will try to enable these features in other popular browsers once more advanced versions of those browser are released.
