Getting your note count in Google Keep

I've always wondered how many Notes I have in Google Keep.  Since I use it mostly on my phone, I missed this trick pointed out by Colin Bowen in a post on the Google Keep Community at Google+.

On Windows, select one note (click top-left of the note) and on keyboard use Ctrl-a (select all). With all selected there's a note count top-left of the screen. I since realized this does not include Archived, bit you can to the same with archived notes too.

 And he's right about Archives. You can find out the number of current Notes and Archived Notes.

I was pleased to find out I have fewer than I thought.

I've been a little leery about going all in on Keep, fearful I'd get so many notes the system would bog down.  Now I know how to keep a handle on my notes.

I'll have some projects built around Keep, and other tools in the works.  For sure, I'll share them here.
