If you find yourself frequently accessing the same note, notebook, search term, or tag, save yourself some time by pinning these often-used items to your Favorites Bar! This feature is available in Mac OS X 10.7+ and Windows, and it’s incredibly easy to use. Here’s how it works:
- Just click on the item (note, notebook, search term, tag) you want to pin and drag it from its home into the Favorites Bar at the top of the screen.
- Once it’s in your Favorites Bar, you can click on the item to bring up the note, the contents of the notebook, or view notes for the specified tag or search, without having to look through your account. If you decide you don’t need the item in your Favorites Bar anymore, just drag it out of the bar again and it will blend back into the rest of your notes.
- Use your Favorites Bar to organize, prioritize, and create shortcuts to important information in your Evernote account.
This process is the same for Windows and Mac.
