Google Keep

This week, I’m going to introduce you to Google Keep. Keep is a notetaking program that’s one of the many web apps that’s offered for free along with your Google Account.

If you have a Gmail address, Android phone, or YouTube account, you already have an account with Google and can easily access Keep. If not, you can click here to learn how to create a Google account. 

To open Keep, you can open up your Gmail inbox and click the square of dots at the top right.


Or go to, log in, and click the square of squares on the upper-right side.


When the menu below pops up, scroll down to Keep. Click to open.


Here’s what the Keep home screen looks like.


To create you first note, click in the box.


Additional options will appear at the bottom.note-options

Enter the title of the note in the Title box.


Then start typing your note.


Once you click out of a note, it will be saved on the home screen.


Tomorrow, in part 2 of this series, we’ll look at how to customize notes.

  1. Cyn, are you aware of anyone upgrading to new version of Windows 10. A week or so ago a box came into the right side of my screen advising me to do so. I had 3 options: pick a time; restart & do it now; or do it when sign off. It wasn’t convenient then or until this morning when I was going out for sunrise and then to do my walk. I expected to be away from the pc about an hour +-. This was 6:30 am. Returned about 7:17 am. Screen indicated process at 10%. At 8:25 it was at 71%, progress at 8:45 @ 91%. It stayed at 91% til 3:23 pm when I called a knowledgeable computer friend. Advised to do a hard restart. Shut down by on/off button at 3:23. Turned on on/off button again at 3:26 pm. Got black screen indicating ‘Undoing changes to computer’. 3:43 pm black screen. Left it alone til 5:48 pm (went to take a nap). 5:48 pm on/off light indicate pc was on, not blinking like if on sleep. Attempted sign on – Very slow, didn’t work right, screens not coming on, unable to sign into email; kept getting ‘resolving host’ bottom left of screen. Did restart. All upgrade or update choices were gone. After 2nd restart, clicked onto New Edge. Was able to sign into email, no more resolving host in left corner. And clicked on your latest post.

    So, heard tell of anyone having this type of problem with upgrade to new version of Windows 10? 6:30 am – 6:30 pm. (Allowing for my nap). Trish
