When you use the Create Summary Page button, items on the resulting page are
identical copies of the originals and include links to the original items. They are not,
however, synchronized with those items. If you click the check box next to an item on the
summary page to mark it as complete, the original tagged item remains unchecked.
Likewise, any notes you add to an original item are not reflected on a summary page

Some people file using meticulously labeled folders. Others use a shoebox. In OneNote, the
shoebox is called Uniled Notes, and it resides at the bottom of the Navigation bar.
When you first set up OneNote, the program creates a single notebook, called Personal,

modify the Uniled Notes Section location on the Save & Backup tab.

Options, and then adjust the settings on the Send To OneNote tab. By default, each option
