Run Google Keep as a Desktop App on Mac, Windows or Linux

Google Keep is not the first note-taking app in the world, even Google released it when Evernote was at the peak of popularity. But Google Keep has one advantage that Evernote or other services do not have, that is the simplicity and integration with the Google account, anyone has a Google account, right? Especially if you are using Android.

First released on Android and the web, Keep instantly became my favorite note-taking app. I write almost anything on the Keep, shopping lists, passwords, and many ideas that often come to my mind.

Google Keep’s desktop native app is not available until now, but we can run Keep as a desktop app through Chrome.

There is a Keep app for Chrome, and here’s how I run it without having to open when I use a laptop or pc.

1. Open your Chrome and go to Keep’s Chrome Web Store

2. Go to chrome://apps/ and right-click on Keep icon, choose to create shortcuts.
