Understanding the OneNote screen
Navigating OneNote 2010 and OneNote 2007
Figure 8.1 shows what OneNote 2010 looks like, and includes a picture from
the guide that helps to explain how OneNote is structured. Down the left-hand
side, written sideways up the screen, you can see your notebooks, including a
OneNote Guide notebook that provides instructions on how to use OneNote. You
can click the arrow indicated in Figure 8.1 to expand this view. Not only does that
avoid you having to twist your neck to read the names, but it also shows you the
tabbed sections within each notebook, as you can see in Figure 8.2. To go to a
particular notebook, click its name.
It doesn’t matter if your notebooks are different from mine. Mine include
guides to both OneNote 2007 and OneNote 2010 because I have both
installed, but you will probably only have one version. The content of the
guides is different between the versions too, so you might not be able to
match my screenshots exactly.
The large white area in the middle of the screen is the current page you are
reading or editing. I’ll show you how you can edit the content in OneNote pages later,
but you can use the scrollbar on the right to move up and down the page to read
the sample pages now.
Above the current page, you can see the tabs. In Figure 8.1, there is just one
section tab called OneNote Guide. You click a tab to move to that section. To the
right of the current page, you can see a list of all the pages within the current
tabbed section of the notebook. The current page is highlighted in white in Figure
8.1, and you can click on the other pages to move to them.
To familiarise yourself with OneNote, it’s a good idea to try moving around the
OneNote guide and sample pages provided when you ﬁ rst use the software. The
way you do this is exactly the same in OneNote 2010 and OneNote 2007.
