You can create notes in Yandex Disk. They are automatically saved to the cloud, so you won't lose them if something happens to your computer. You can also use your notes on several computers at the same time, for example, at home and at work. To do this, sign in to Yandex Disk on both computers.

Restriction. Notes are only installed on computers running OS versions 7 and later (Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10).

Use Notes on different devices

​You can use Notes on several devices, like your computer and phone, if you are signed in to Yandex Disk with the same account.​ Learn what platforms support Notes in the section.

If you simultaneously edit the same note on different devices, Yandex Disk creates a copy of the note. Changes made on one device are saved in the original note, and changes made on the other are saved in the copy.
