When to use
When you need to clip webpages, articles, or URLs, take advantage of Evernote’s Web Clipper.
To download the Web Clipper, go to Evernote’s main site, hit “Products,” select Web Clipper from the list. Evernote will ask you to confirm which browser you’re using. And walk you through the rest of the steps.
Make sure to also download the Web Clipper extension for your browser. This way you’ll be able to clip anything from the web and immediately have it saved to your Evernote account.
A great advantage of using a Web Clipper browser extension is that it remembers your preferences--whether you prefer to clip:
- Simplified article
- Full page
It also allows you to:
- Add the note you are about to create into a specific notebook
- Tag it in a specific way
- Or add a remark
As with all of your Notes, your web clips are super searchable—meaning Evernote will even scan your clipped web images for text. The URL associated with the clip will also be automatically embedded in your note, so if you are doing a research project, for example, you’ll always be able to go back to the original source to add the proper citation.
