A few months ago, Evernote made a change to the way note links work when they are copied and pasted outside of Evernote.
A note link is a special link that will go directly to one of your Evernote notes. This can be helpful if you want to go directly to one of your notes from another application (for example, a calendar or to-do app).
Many power users were up in arms about this change, because when you click on one of these new note links, the note now opens in your browser in the web version of Evernote (https:// links for you nerds out there).
The previous behavior was to open the note directly in whichever Evernote application was installed on the computer or mobile device (aka evernote:// links). For example, the table of contents in my most recent newsletter issue is made up of evernote:// links.
Some may like this new change, but I am among those that do not. Thankfully, Jason Frasca put together a guide to creating note links as our forefathers did: Open Evernote Note Links Directly On The Desktop Again.
If you are like me and like to work exclusively from the desktop you have found this change to be frustrating.
So I tracked down the old Classic Note Links to force your Evernote Notes to open on the desktop directly.
