There are five main sections of Mendeley Desktop (seen in the photo below in red boxes):
Watch the video below to take a tour of Mendeley Desktop.
Add files (Word, PDFs), folders, watch folders, or enter an entry manually. The easiest way to add an entry is through Mendeley's web importer because Mendeley will often auto populate the necessary fields for an item. You can add files to Mendeley by:
Create or delete folders.
Find related articles with the "Related" button. Select one or more related articles and click "Related" to find similar articles.
Sync your web library to your desktop library. This keeps your desktop and web libraries up to date.
Get help straight from the desktop.
Search your entire library using key terms.
If you have an article open, you can search within the text for key terms.
All folders, groups, and trash are located in the left column. Create folders here as well.
Mendeley automatically adds as much information as it can. When more information is needed, check the "Needs Review" folder for items that need further attention.
This is where you can view your library, items within a folder, and article PDFs. When you annotate PDFs, you will do so in this column.
When you add notes to PDFs, you can find them here. You can also find all your sticky notes within the document here in the right column. Some PDFs have table of contents that you can navigate.
