Evernote allows the ability to take quick notes through the macOS. You can use the combination of Control + Command + N on Mac or Ctrl + Alt + N keyboard shortcut on Windows to open the pop-up window to take a quick note.

3. Sync Evernote
I usually don’t have any problem with Evernote syncing. The service has been rock solid for me. But if you are facing syncing issues on your side, then you can use Ctrl + Command + S on Mac or F9 for Windows to sync the note manually. Continue to monitor the sync experience to figure out whether the failure was temporary or needs your immediate attention.
4. Jump to Notebook
Most Evernote users create multiple Notebooks to organize the notes. You can either tap on the Notebook icon at the sidebar or use the Command + J on Mac or Ctrl + Shift + N keyboard shortcut for Windows to jump through multiple notebooks. If you are dealing with dozens of notebooks, then this shortcut is the must-have for you.
5. Quick Search
After testing out several note-taking apps, I have concluded that Evernote provides the best search experience. It hardly fails to find the note that I search for. You can either tap on the search icon at the top or use the Option + Command + F on Mac or Ctrl + Q on Windows to quickly search the note.
6. Text Highlighter
I use Evernote highlighter all the time. You can quickly select the word or sentences in the Evernote and use the Highlight icon in the note editor. Even better, hit the Control + Command + H on Mac or Ctrl + Shift + H keyboard shortcut on Windows to quickly highlight the selected text.

9. Encrypt Selected Text
Do you know Evernote allows you to encrypt text in a note? It’s a must-have to keep sensitive data safe from strangers. You can select the text, use keyboard shortcut Command + Shift + X for Mac or Ctrl + Shift + X for Windows, choose an encryption passphrase and you are good to go.
The text will get converted in an encrypted message that opens only with the password. To remove encryption, right-click on the phrase and select decrypt text permanently.
10. Open Note Details
I use this option all the time. When working on a blog post note, I often need to look at the word count. By default, Evernote doesn’t show the word count of the note on the main screen. You need to go to note details to find information such as size, word count, tags, sync status, and more.
Use Command + Shift + I on Mac or Ctrl + Shift + I on Windows to open the note details panel quickly.
