Better ways to send plain text to kindle other than email?

Hello, I just bought my first ever Kindle, which is a PW4. I do not often buy books but I would like to use the Kindle to read big chunk of text on websites which is more comfortable in eInk than computer screen.

I know and I have tested the email to Kindle feature, which I can send specific format of files to amazon and it will convert to a format readable by kindle. This solves most of my problem.

But I also want to easily pass the stuff I wrote on my note taking app, i.e. Google Keep, to kindle, so that when I am using the computer screen to do something else, I can have another screen that show my notes. Of course this can also be done by copy and paste the text into a txt file and send by email, but I wish to know if there is any better way than that. I imagine transferring text from mobile phone to kindle is even more important, as saving a text file using android is more inconvenient than I think.

So I am grateful if anyone can point me to resources that can quickly share text to kindle.

Thanks a lot. This is exactly what I want. Any android equivalent?

Send to Kindle app works on PC also you can send what you want within reason. I ends up in DOC File When you don't want it any more Delete from > your content>DOC. From there you can also send to any Kindle Device including Amazon Reading App.

Yes, but I think I am not getting another browser unless it beats Chrome in functionality as a whole.

Also, in android most of the time such operation is done through sharing so every app can share text and files under the "share" interface. I wish there is a certain app that I can share text to, and it will send the text file through email to amazon.

Save a file and Import to Calibre. Convert to AZW3. Optionally format the file in any WP that can save in DOCX.

Thanks but it would be too complicated. I am looking for a simple way to quickly export the notes to another screen so I won't need to switch between screens when I need to use computer and mobile phone to do something else. Something like a quick click and it appears on the other screen is what I want, and I want to do it frequently. Formatting is unnecessary.

Simpler and RELIABLE doesn't really exist.
Certainly "Send to Kindle" is a pain.

A print driver that uses any eBook connected by USB would be nice. I only charge on the laptop. WiFi & Internet isn't always available, apart from cost and privacy.
