Capturing recipes from the Internet
Capturing recipes from the Internet
There are many great recipes on the Internet, and you can easily add them to your
OneNote recipe book. There, you can annotate them with your own experiences.
There isn’t space here to explain how to fi nd recipes on the Internet or how to use
a web browser, but there are detailed instructions for getting started with a web
browser in the appendix to Social Networking for the Older and Wiser and at .
First, fi nd a recipe on the Internet that you want to keep. There are then several
different ways you can add it to OneNote from Internet Explorer:
Click to open the Tools menu on the browser and then select Send to OneNote
(shown in Figure 8.10). Although this strips out most of the design of the page,
it will include navigation links and buttons. You can easily edit and delete
anything you don’t need.
Alternatively, click the arrow beside the Print button to open the print menu
(Figure 8.10) and choose Print. When the print options open, change the printer
to ‘Send to OneNote 2010’ (or 2007, accordingly). This inserts a picture of the
printed page into your recipe book. The upside is that the printed page tends
to look nicer, but the downside is that you can’t edit the text. You can add your
own text on top of the webpage, though. (You can use the printer driver in this
way to send information from any program to OneNote.)
Another way is to select the text you want to add to OneNote by clicking at the
start of it, holding down the mouse button and moving the mouse pointer to the
end of the text. Your selected text will be highlighted. Release the left mouse
button, and then right-click anywhere on your selected text. From the menu that
opens, choose ‘Send to OneNote’. (This is the least reliable method.)
You can also select the text you want in the webpage (as described in the
previous technique), but use the CTRL+C keyboard shortcut to copy it from
the webpage and use CTRL+V to paste it into a OneNote page. You can paste
into OneNote from most programs. You sacrifi ce advanced formatting features,
and spreadsheets will also lose their formulae when you paste from them.
If you arrange a OneNote window and a browser page side by side on the
screen, you can drag the selected text from the webpage into OneNote. You
can use this approach for other applications too (such as Word).
