See It In Action

As an example of how to make a note I will be showing how to use the Web Browser to clip a Webpage and share it to Keep and potentially other people.

First, hop out to a webpage you want to clip (or save for later) and then click the Google Keep button (See below).

After you have clipped the page, and made an applicable notes, then go ahead and send the note to Keep.

Once the note is sent it instantly shows up in Keep. So, hop over to Keep (web browser or mobile phone) and see the note. Then click on the specific note you just made. Once the note is open, you will be able to see a whole bunch of options, such as ‘Add a Reminder’, ‘Insert or Add Pictures’, ‘Share’, and many more options. See the image below to understand the position and layout of those options.

In this example I want to set a reminder to read this article later in the evening. In order to do that, I click the reminder button and then the option for later today (see below).

Once I have set the reminder I can leave the note or can archive it. If I archive the note it will reappear once the time comes when the reminder I just set is triggered.
