Evernote - Clipper has encountered an error
Recently, when I've tried to save a webpage to
browser, I frequently see the message "Clipper has encountered an error"
with "Unknown error occurred. UNK."
I have been able to save the page by disabling and then re-enabling
the Evernote extension in the browser. In the Brave Browser, you can
do so by closing the error message window, then clicking on the icon of
3 short horizontal bars at the upper, left-hand side of the Brave window
which will display a menu of options. Select "extensions" and then click on
the red slider button at the bottom, right-hand side of the Evernote Web
Clipper extension to turn it off (it will go from red to gray).
Then click on it again to re-enable the extension. You can then close
the Brave extensions tab (brave://extensions). You will then need to
refresh the page. After I've disabled and re-enabled the extension when
I've seen the error message, I've then been able to click on the icon for
Evernote near the browser's address bar and save webpages to Evernote.

Extracting image files from Google Chrome Cache
I wanted to save a local copy of an image on a webpage I was viewing in
the Google Chrome browser on a Windows 10 system, but I couldn't right-click on
it to download it, so I thought I could look for it in the Chrome browser
cache, which is located at
is the name of the relevant
account on a Windows system. I had the
program from NirSoft
system, which provides a command-line option to copy image files from the
Chrome cache for a user, so I used it. Since I was logged into a regular
user account, I
opened a command prompt as the
and then made the working directory the directory where
the ChromeCacheView program was located with
cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Network\NirSoft\ChromeCacheView
from that directory I issued the command below:
chromecacheview -folder "C:\Users\JohnDoe\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Cache\" /copycache "" "image/png" /CopyFilesFolder "c:\users\johndoe\documents\temp\chrome" /UseWebSiteDirStructure 0
You can use the
-folder option to tell ChromeCacheView which
user's cache file you wish to use while the
can be used to specify the directory where you want images, such as
to be copied—in this case I was looking for a .png file because when I
examined the HTML code on the
webpage I thought that the the image was a PNG file. I created a
temp\chrome directory under the Documents directory for
the user account prior to issuing the command to hold the images stored
in the cache. After the command completed, I could see all of the PNG
files that had been in the Chrome cache in that temporary directory I
When I didn't see the image I was looking for, I thought I might have
misidentified it in the code, so I copied all of the image files from the
cache directory, not just the PNG ones by changing "image/png" to
"image" in the command. I.e.:
chromecacheview -folder "C:\Users\JohnDoe\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Cache\" /copycache "" "image" /CopyFilesFolder "c:\users\johndoe\documents\temp\chrome" /UseWebSiteDirStructure 0
(.ico), JPEG (.jpg),
Interchange Format (JFIF) (.jfif),
and WebP (.webp) files from
the cache as well as the PNG ones.

Unable to type in Microsoft Edge address field
I couldn't type anything in the
address bar where URLs are entered nor could I type in the "Find on page"
field in Edge on a Microsoft Windows 10 system. But in tabs opened to
pages where I might type some input, such as a tab in which I was viewing
a Wikipedia article, I cold type and see what I had typed appear. E.g.,
in the Wikipedia tab, I could search for other Wikipedia articles. And in
the outlook.com tab that was also open, I could compose email messages. I
could also type input into the Microsoft Windows "Type here to search"
field at the bottom of the screen. When I searched online for a
possible resolution to the problem, I found a couple of pages where
people linked it to McAfee antivirus software on the system, but that
isn't installed on the system. I also saw a couple of pages where people
stated that running the built-in Windows
ctfmon.exe program might resolve the problem. I opened a command prompt
and issued the tasklist
command to see if it was already running. It was and when I ran it again
anyway, there was no change to the problem.
C:\>tasklist | find /i "ctfmon"
ctfmon.exe 25000 Console 3 22,444 K
Closing and reopening Microsoft Edge resolved the problem.
