    Just updated. Great tips. I did try using quick notes. It works fine with fnQ shortcut, but it does not seem to work with the pointer in the corner. Is this something which needs to be set up. Again, Thanks for the great tips. Ken

    Ken: Check in System Preferences, Mission Control. Hot Corners and add it as a Hot Corner. It should be there by default, but if you changed Hot Corners previously it may override it.

    I went to mission control and it is set up for quick notes, but I guess I do not know how to activate it. I will play around with it. Thank you.

    The bottom right hand corner uses (Command Key) ⌘ Quick Note, the other 3 corners use Quick Note, Rick

    Correction, I pressed the Command Key when selecting the Quick Note for the bottom right hand corner. All 4 corners can be defined with just Quick Note. Sorry, Rick

    Airplay receiver is not an option in Sharing for me. Fully updated 2017 iMac. Is there something I am missing? Thanks.

    Notes preferences allow opening a new quick note either as a new note or to resume the last note. There are times when I would like to start a new note, while other times when I just need to keep going with an existing note. How do we get around this?

    Razvan: Just have it set to New Note, but when you want to keep going with an existing note just go to the Notes app and open that note instead of using the shortcut.

    Gary: Thanks. Prompt and to the point, as always. By reading your answer, I feel that quick notes are nothing more than automating opening a new note in a specific folder, i.e., Quick Notes folder, with the added benefit of assigning that automation to a hot corner.

    When I create a new quick note, I can not only see that note under the Quick Notes folder but also under the iCloud/Notes folder. Is this the expected behavior?

    Gary: Thanks. I don’t see the point yet, but good to know to navigate our way through.

    Thanks Gary, as always much appreciated.
    I updated both of our Macs last night.
    I didn’t have any luck on the FN/Q. I also don’t have the option to select AirPlay Receiver on either of my Macs. That kinda stinks as I would like that option. Maybe in a later update??
