If you dig Evernote’s capture powers but don’t leave it constantly running on your system, the EveryJoe blog suggests creating a “Send To” shortcut in Windows’ right-click menu to shuttle files over to where Evernote will catch them.
Even if you do leave Evernote running and ready for note and item catching, sending files to a folder you tell Evernote to watch for uploads might fit into your work flow just a bit better. EveryJoe explains how heading to File/Import in Evernote allows you to leave a folder being constantly monitored by Evernote for PDFs, Word files, text items, and pictures. After creating a shortcut to that folder, simply add it to your Send To menu. Windows XP users can follow this handy old trick to do so, while Vista and Windows 7 users should try the How-To Geek’s guide to get your Evernote folder into the Send To menu.
