Discovering OneNote
OneNote has long been the “forgotten child” of the Microsoft Oi ce suite. Most computer
users know, or are at least familiar with, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and perhaps
Access, the database program. In contrast, OneNote may be among the most widely
distributed, yet least used programs. Furthermore, few of the computer users who are aware
of OneNote (most likely due to either its presence on the Windows Start menu or having
read the product packaging) have any idea of what you can actually do with the program.
OneNote allows you to collect and organize data in various formats, including:
Text
Images
Audio
Video
Web pages
Freehand sketches
OneNote is similar to the physical notebooks (such as three-ring binders) that you’ve
undoubtedly used at work or school. For example, a OneNote Notebook contains Sections,
which in turn contain Pages that you use to store your content. Like a physical notebook,
you can rearrange a OneNote Notebook’s Sections and Pages as you see i t. As a result,
OneNote is designed to be much more user friendly than an Access database, even though
both programs are designed to contain and organize information.
Working with OneNote
OneNote can help you manage notes in situations where you would normally use a physical
notebook. Here are some examples:
