How to open Google keep from the note button?
To have the Google Keep tool available in the note button we will have to make a series of changes in the system registry. This is because as this program does not originally belong to the Windows 10 system you will have to make some changes to make it work for you.
It is not complicated at all, you just have to follow our guide and you will not have any problem in the procedure that we are going to show you. In the same way, if you do not know how to enter the Windows 10 registry, you can get help from Microsoft technical support.
Once you are in the Windows registry, the first thing you should do is locate the value string called “Uri” which is the one we are going to modify. To do this you just have to double click on it and replace the current value of “OneNote” with the server address.
After making the change, proceed to restart the pc so that these changes take effect on your computer. And voila, you can go to the Windows activity center and press the note button to access Google Keep.
If at any time you want to restore the previous value so that when you press the note button, OneNote will appear again, just change the value to “onenote-cmd: // quicknote? OnOpen = typing”. This will make the button go back to how it was before you modified it. You can also make a backup copy before editing the values.
So when you want to have the note button again as before, you just have to restore the list and you will achieve it more easily. With that you already have all the necessary knowledge to be able to have Google Keep always at hand on your PC.
