UPDATE 2/5/2017: The method below doesn’t backup notes in Archive. In addition to the main notes section as described below, you have to also backup the Archive notes by going to the Archive section (at the bottom of the left slide-out menu), then follow the same process as below for the regular notes section.

I use Google Keep a lot. Notes are stored on Google’s servers. No doubt Google has backups, but what if something happens or I just permanently delete a note by mistake? It’s not easy to ask Google to recover it for me. Here’s a quick and simple way to backup all your Google Keep notes.
- On your PC, to to Google Keep and Select All notes by using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl-A
- In the grey bar above the notes, click the three dots
- Select “Copy to Google Doc” and all the notes will be copied to a Google Drive/Docs file.
If you want to download a copy to keep locally (which I recommend), open the Google Doc, click File, Download As, and select your format of choice.
