The Windows 10 Evernote app received a rather large update today that added the new Home feature, improvements to search and filters, and the ability to finally add words to the dictionary.

The addition of Evernote’s new Home feature is pretty significant as it brings an entire dashboard experience to the note-taking app that allows users to view, and control, a variety of information and data from several different sources via the implementation of widgets.

Here’s a brief video showing off Evernote’s new Home functionality in action:

And here’s the full release notes for this app update:

  • This update includes Home, a new one-stop dashboard that puts the information you need front and center—neatly organized and instantly available
  • Home consists of widgets that display your content in a convenient and streamlined view. All customers have a notes widget, a scratch pad widget, and a recently captured widget
  • Evernote Premium and Evernote Business customers have additional widget options, as well as the ability to customize the appearance of their Home


  • We added ‘Located in notebook or space’ as a filter option for the All Notes view and in search results, so you can find what you need faster.
  • Searching inside shared notebooks is back.
  • See your recent notes in the sidebar or hide them from view. The choice is yours.
  • We improved the “Edit tags” menu to make it easier to navigate using just your keyboard.
  • You know that one word the spellchecker never seems to understand? Now you can add it to your dictionary and teach it a lesson.
