1. Learn OneNote Basics!: Hi, Welcome to Microsoft. Onenote. Learn OneNote basics. So you're starting out in Microsoft OneNote. This is perfect for you. This is what we will cover in the course. Organizing your notes synchronized across multiple devices, draw managed media and a whole lot more. So learn Microsoft OneNote now, and I'll see you inside. 2. Get Started with Microsoft OneNote: Hi, This is Bryan Hong and we're going to be discussing on how to use OneNote to the fullest. Okay, so let's get started first with what OneNote is all about. To be honest, when I first started working with one node, I thought it was just the note taking application. So it's just a place where you just type in their nose or at random ideas, for example. And then it's just a way to get you organized. But as I was exploring OneNote, piece-by-piece, there's a lot of features that you can discover inside OneNote that will be really helpful to you. That's what we are going to be covering in this course. Okay? So for one node will be focusing on this specific version. You can see on the top here, OneNote for Windows ten. But aside from that, we will be discussing about different versions as well, like for example, OneNote Online and also OneNote 2016. And the cool thing with this one, everything is free. And just to give you a quick overview, this is actually one or 2016. Okay, so don't get overwhelmed by this. I'll be going through step-by-step on what are the differences so that they can make a choice on which fits better for you. In my opinion, I prefer this one for Windows ten because it has a modern interface. It looks more modern as compared to the 2016 version, but it's up to you. I'll be discussing the differences between the functionality so that we can make a wise decision. Okay, So pretty much you can see that the views are different, right? But the functionality that you learn here in this course can be applied to the different versions of one node. So it's pretty much applicable regardless of which version that you choose to use. 3. Organize Notebooks: Now let's talk about organizing notebooks. So pretty much one node has a very simple structure. If we go here on the left side, on this sidebar over here you can see this option called the hide navigation. If I just click on this, it will show me all of the notebooks. Okay, so to be able to show your notebooks, you'll just click on this on the top right. And then you have your list of notebooks. So pretty much a notebook is made up of different sections, and then each section is made up of different pages. Okay, So you could think of it as a tree level structure in a way, notebooks and then sections and then pages. So over here, inside notebooks, I have the default, my notebook. And then I've created a couple of more notebooks that I wanted to use. For example, this one books and then followed by courses. And the cool thing with this one with notebooks inside the OneNote, it gets saved to the Cloud, which means there's synchronization that's happening. So whenever make change. Over here in the Windows ten version, for example, I jump into my mobile version of OneNote or to the website version, right? The changes that I make will get synchronized to those as well. So which means you can just jump over to your phone, to your tablet, your laptop, and then you would have your notes synchronized between all of them. And for me, that's pretty handy because for example, if I'm on the go and I wanted to take note of a specific idea. For example, if I wanted to create a new court, all of a sudden, I could just type in inside my OneNote in mobile phone. And then pretty much when I get home, for example, I start working on the laptop and pretty much everything gets sync. So I can just continue working over here as if nothing happened. There's no need for manual transferring and out. Okay, So inside the books right over here, it's very easy to create a new notebook. So for example, I'll just right-click here and you can just select New Notebook. So for example, let's say I have a new notebook for meetings and then I'll just create a notebook over here, right? An annual have a new notebook right away. There are a couple of customization to spell that you could do for this one. So I could see over here, there's the green color or orange color. So you can just customize them to make it more obvious to you or to differentiate from one book to another. So now we have our new notebook. And you could see on this icon over here, it's going to get synchronized. So the next thing is let's go back to our notebooks. Alright, so if I just jump back here, there's a couple of days that you can make changes on to your notebooks. If I just right-click, let's say on our newly created notebook. So you have nickname, you have the sync option, right? It can close this notebook and you can change the color. So this is the one that I've been sharing about a while ago. So if I change this yellow for example, so you can just have it over here. We could copy link to notebooks. So we'll be exploring this more in a later session on how can we share your notebook files, for example, with other people. And they can pin local to start and then View deleted nodes. Another option over here is more, not both. So for example, if you have more notebooks that you want to open, then you can just select this option and then see everything under your notebook list. So once you have set aquitard notebooks, okay, you can just click open, but in our case, we're just going to cancel this. So after the notebooks, we're gonna be going straight to the section. So let's say, let's just jump over to a different notebook of courses. So over here what I did was I pretty much created multiple sections over here. So which means for the course that I wanted to make, what are the topics that I would want to discuss about? So you can see over here, there's Word or Excel, there's PowerPoint at Cheddar outlook, one node for Windows ten. Okay, so four sections, pretty much, it's very easy as well to create a new section. Just right-click here, and then you just select new section. So pretty much similar to how we did for the creating of the new notebook. And over here, right, you could just do a similar Nick customization to your sections. And if you just right-click on any section over here you have the delete rename, you can move, and then you can change the color as well. So pretty much the same options that we have from awhile ago, Copy link as well, P in selection, and you can even have password protection. Another thing that I want to take note of is the use of section group. So for this section groups, It's just a handy way for you to group sections together. So for example, in our list over here, right, we have Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook. You're pretty much under the Microsoft Office umbrella. So what we'll do right now is I'll just right-click on this empty space over here. And then I'll select new section group, right? And then I could just type in, let's say Microsoft Office. And then you can start dragging over here. Let's say, let's just drag outlook, put it inside the group and say we have PowerPoint as well. Let's place it over here. So it's pretty easy, pretty easy to do. So if you just want to organize them together inside a section group so that you can just hide them in one go. So if there's gonna be a lot of sexual sin here is gonna be pretty helpful for you to make use of Section groups, right? So after we use four sections, then this is where we go to the lowest level, which is the pages. So if we just go here, let's say go to OneNote. I've already created a couple of pages in here. So you could see on this side over here, this is pretty much the list of all the pages. So for example, we have the course outline. We have random ideas page, and pretty much the same thing if you just add as well, just right-click, and then you could just create a new page, but pretty much you could also add, let's say sections are pages from this option at the bottom as well. You could just click here at page, and the same thing happens. You have an untitled page and then you can just start typing your ideas. Then you can just drag and drop them as well if you want to reorganize them. And then right-click on the page. And pretty much you'll see a similar set of options over here. The only one that's different, right? You could have even sub pages. You can have a default template if you're using this one over and over again, right? And then there's even translation pages which we will be exploring in the next few tutorials. 4. Settings and View Tab: Okay, so before we get into modifying pages inside our notebooks, right? But let's just jump over to the different setting options that you could see inside OneNote to be able to access your setting. It's just located over here on the upper right corner. If I click on this and then I'll just select Settings. And then we'll have a quick look on what options that are possible inside OneNote. So pretty much color synchronization of notebooks, I would suggest just leave it on so that it gives you the added convenience when you jump over to a different device that has one or installed as well, then we have sync all files and images. So for example, if you want to automatically download all of them, swell and then you can turn it on, right, Class Notebook tools, and then we have quick note. So quick notice one of the most use options that we can do. So over here, choose a notebook for quick notes, and this will be the default location for a new node. So if there's a specific notebook that you use, for example, as your starting point, okay? And then you just start to organize them afterwards. Then you could use this specific notebook. So for example, if most of the time I think, of course ideas on what can I do next? Then pretty much I want the default notebook to be this four courses, because this is my number one notebook or that's the notebook that I go to to get things started. So you can just keep this. Just select the notebook and then click Okay. Let's go back again to our settings. That's kick settings options, and let's check it out. We have start tiles, we have navigation as well. If you want to go back to the legacy navigation panes, then you could just turn it on. And then we have create new pages. So over here, you could also change the default font, the size as well. If you want it larger or bigger than, it's up to you. And if you're feeling adventurous, you can also enable the experimental features under a OneNote preview. Then there's also a page previous as well. And then proofing, if you don't want to show your spelling errors, select this as well. And then there's also autocorrect, okay, and then paste options, right? So pretty much the settings in one not very accessible over here, right? And he's just jumping over to settings and then options. So let's jump now to the View tab. So right now for the View tab, there's a lot of options over here, and we'll go over them one by one. Okay, So for example, this one, we have our course outline right now, right this page open. Okay, and then I'll just select new window. So this new window option is a handy way. So for example, if I have two pages, let's say I'm working on the random ideas page as well. Then I want to have a quick look on the course outline so that I could sink the ideas together. So you can just open a new window. Use the View new window so that you can have this side-by-side. And then you can work on multiple pages simultaneously. Okay. Let's say you just have one monitor like me, like what I'm doing right now. This is pretty handy. So I'll just close this. All right? And then the next option that I wanted to discuss is the Immersive Reader. So what I did over here is already created a couple of bullet points for the course outline. Alright, and then let's just add a couple more. Let's say conclusion. Thank you. Message for example, right? And then you just click anywhere and then just type more. You could just type in more over here. But let's just delete that. Now. Let's click Immersive Reader and see what's going to happen. So the cool thing with Immersive Reader, it will load the texts for you in an easy to read. It's like zoomed in version, okay, over here. So now let's just click Play and then see what's going to happen. And it's gonna be read aloud for you. In production. Different versions of OneNote talking about YouTube, pros and cons. How are you? Inclusion? Thank you message. Okay, so that's pretty cool, is it just comes out of the box in OneNote and in good, just have, let's say you have a lot of texts and then you don't want to read it on your screen or you're doing something else, then you could just use Immersive Reader to just read it aloud for you. It's like having an audio book, okay, that's ready to be read aloud for you. There's also different options because the setting that I have right now is pretty quick. Okay, so I could just change the speed. Then you can also change the voice selection, let's say from male to female as well. So let's just try it out. Let's say let's try it at a normal speed. Then I'll play it out. Introduction different versions of OneNote. Talk about View tab pros and cons. How are you? Okay, so that's past that. So you could hear the difference, right? You could just play around with your different settings after the Immersive Reader. So another thing is with the fonts. If I select this, you could just change the size as well, okay, if it's too big or too small for you, chase the spacing changed the font, right? And then you have different teams as well. If you just want to change the background color to be better on your eyes or software and your eyes, for example. And then show source formatting. Another option is this one. Grammar options already had this turned on for the noun. So you could see nouns getting color-coded. Okay, so for example, if you're learning English as well, this is gonna be pretty helpful for you. So if you just turn this off and then let's say, let's turn on the verbs so you could see the color red over here and then adjectives as well. Alright, so it's really cool. It can tell you the different parts of speech that are available inside your texts as well. You can even have syllables turned on so you can see introduction over here. You can have the different syllables and then reading preferences, okay, So we have translations as well. You could just have this translate it to a different language. So that's really, really cool. You can even have Line Focus. We show three lines of text when reading or just one line of text. So you can just have like a spotlight function that you can use. Okay, So that's really nice for Immersive Reader just comes out of the box. So you could use that to read long texts out loud. Let's exit that. Then. Other options that we have is pretty much going to zoom in, zoom out. So pretty much the basic. If you're familiar with the Office Suite, There's always that option. If you want to make your view larger or smaller than you could just use this two buttons. Okay, So zoom to 100%, right. I'll just click this and back to the a 100% view. Or you could just fit everything inside your screen with this option over here, okay? So we have page colors as well where you can just change the background color, for example, okay, So select more colors. You can just change this method. I'll just go back to the original color. There we have rule lines as well. Okay. If you're feeling like you want it to be a milk Brookfield, then you could just use this right away. So for example, let's just select this college ruled. And you can see the nice for his leg. Real notebook, right? That's really cool inside the OneNote. But for example, if you're doing graphs, so you could also use grid lines. So I'll just select this and then you could just start making graphs as well over here again to start growing them. So pretty much rule lines, you can just use them and depends on the size that you need and you could just make the changes accordingly. So I'll just turn this off for now, or maybe we can just keep the notebook field over here. We have deleted nodes. You could just have a quick look over here, View deleted nodes, empty deleted nodes, right? Okay, and then we have translate. So for example, translate over here. Let's select this text. How are you? Then let's just select Translate and you can have options for selection or pretty much the entire page. So let's go for selection first and see what's going to happen, right? So we have over here, right? English, it was able to auto detect the texts language. And then I've had it changed, for example, to Chinese. So it's gonna be any Homer. Okay, So that's pretty cool because right out of the box, you would be able to change, right, from your source language to whatever target language that you need. So even here right inside of OneNote, you can just have your entire document, for example, translate it so that it becomes easier for you to read. Okay, So that's really, really handy. So let's close that. We can even have it inserted right into your texts. For example, I'll just click Insert and just copy paste, whatever the translation output. Yes, right, So that's really cool. So let me just remove that. Let's close that. Okay, So that's pretty much for the View tab. And then we will be jumping onto working with multiple accounts in the next tutorial. 5. Work with Multiple Accounts: Now let's discuss about working with multiple accounts. So inside OneNote, it's very easy if you have multiple account, let's say you have a personal account in a work account. So it's very easy. I'll just click on the top over here so you could see your email address on the top. That's my account. If I just click on it, then pretty much you have the entire list of the accounts that I've added to the OneNote application. And then you just add more accounts in here at an after doing that, just close and pretty much you have your accounts in one place. 6. Tell Me In OneNote: Okay, So let's discuss about tell me in one naught. So this is actually one of my favorite features because if there's a multitude of options that you could use inside OneNote, and then if you forget on what it's called, then tell me it's very useful to do this. So for example, for example, let's say we discussed a while ago about what the Immersive Reader function is. And then let's say you can't remember what the name of the function is or you can't remember the location. So let's just go to home for example. And then you can remember which tab to save you time. The Tell Me which is this light bulb icon over here, ticket see over here telling me what you want to do. I'll just click on this, right. Then it's going to be able to search that feature for you. Or it's gonna be able to suggest on what is the best fit based on your needs, are based on your request. So for example, let's say I can't remember what it's called Immersive Reader. Let's say I only remember the keyword reader. So if I just type in Reader over here, right, you can see it gets suggested. I could just click on this and then it's going to start up Immersive Reader for me. So for example, let's say as well, I can't remember how to add a new section. So if I just type in section over here, then it's going to show me all of the options that are available for section. So that's really handy. Okay, So if you have a specific feature or something that you need to be done inside OneNote and you can't remember where it is or if you just want to save time, for example, and then just go straight to it. Then just go to the Tell Me function over here, just click on the icon and then start typing on what you need to be done. 7. Adding Text and Videos: Now let's discuss about adding texts and videos inside OneNote. So what I'm doing right now is I'm inside the untitled page, so it's just a blank page that we created. And then this is where we'll be doing some experiments, where we're going to be playing around adding texts and videos. It's a, okay, so over here, you can just type in text. So for example, let's say for one node, what do I want to discuss? Let's say, what are the presentation files that I'll be using, for example. So I want to use, let's say I'll just create a number and then numbered list over here. And then let's say I want to use a PowerPoint file to show on how we can attach files inside one, maybe another PDF file as well, right? And then anything else? Let's say a Word file over here. What I'm doing is you can just type in text anywhere inside your page. So it's like if I click another one here, Let's say I thought of another one. So you could just type anywhere and then you can drag and drop them as well. Okay, so that's really cool and then adjusts. It's like a free form in a way, It's not really structured, but it's up to you if you want to have some organization and then you can organize them together. Okay? So that's pretty much for texts. It doesn't have to be linear. Then another thing is on the Home tab. You can have the usual stuff that you can use for editing. Let's say over here, you have your font. You can change the size, make it larger, and then you can undo and then redo as well whatever changes that you did. And then over here, same thing. And then you can have the bold and italics underline, and then we have the highlight as well, and then the font color. And that's pretty much the Format Painter. So if you want to copy the format, the F1 selection, I'll just click on this and then paste this on the other. That's pretty much it just copy paste whatever formatting that it uses. And then we have the clear formatting. And then over here is font formatting as well. And then pretty much two bullets, numbers, okay, and that indentation, what I want to focus on is the tags over here, right? So for the tags, you can have this. So let's highlight this, right? Then the tax, let's say, let's try D to do, okay, So over here now you have a to-do lists. You can just tick and then tick, right? So this is pretty cool because there's a lot of different options that you can use. So for example, let's try the important tag, right? So let's say, let's undo this. And then let's say the important one that I want to prepare is the Word file. So I'll just tag this as important. Okay. And then let's say this is questionable. I'm not sure. So I'll just tag this essay question. And therefore the PowerPoint and say, let's just tag this as remember for later. So this just highlights it. But it's really cool because you can, you can create a costume tag as well. It's up to you on how you want to format it. And then there's a lot of options that you can use here. There's some customizability that you can do and then he just reuse them so that we can label or tag specific tax or atoms inside your OneNote pages. So that's where text and then we have styles as well. If you have used, let's say Microsoft Word, Microsoft Word pretty much hairstyle for smell, predefined styles. So they can just use an easily format your text. So for example, let's say this one. I just want to change this to heading to the mall to change it for this one for change because we've tagged this a while ago. But they change based on the heading and then you could just reuse as well. This headings are the rest of your texts. So that's pretty much for the Home tab. And then another thing is when it comes to using videos, it's very easy as well to paste links. So for example, a website links or YouTube links right over here. So what I have right now is let me just open YouTube and then we have this pivot table, Excel tutorial. And then we'll just copy this and we'll see what's going to happen. So for example, if I just paste in here the YouTube link, right? So it's just going to paste it in right away. And then you have your thumbnail as well and you can just play it over here. So which means that that's really cool because if you're doing research, for example, if you are compiling a lot of videos and then tag as well, then you could just use like copy paste links over here. And then it will also give you a preview so that it's easier for you to understand. 8. Inserting More Items: Okay, so now let's discuss about inserting more items into your notes. So what I'll do right now is let's add a new page. Let's start from scratch. And then we're gonna be discussing about the Insert tab because there's a lot of things that we can insert inside our pages. So the first thing is for tables. So let's say for tables, I'll just click Insert Table. And then over here you could just define the grid, the grid size that you want to use. So let's go for a four by three table. Then once you have it, then you can just insert stuff in sign, okay? So nothing fancy. And then pretty much you can just right-click a swell and then you can just paste or do some formatting as well over here. Then for the table options, you can insert rows, you can insert columns, delete rows, columns, or delete the entire table altogether. Okay? So that's pretty much for the inserting of tables. A lot of things that you can insert our files as well. So for example, over here, if we select File and then let's say I have a PowerPoint file, I'll just open this. Somehow. It won't. Let me add this here. Let's try it again. Okay, cool. Now it works. And over here it's asking like, how do you want to insert this file? Do you want to upload to OneDrive first and then insert the link? Or do you want to insert as an attachment or insert as a printout for inserting us and attachment. Let's just select this. It's just linking to the file inside my hard drive. So here's the thing. What if we selected the printout instead? So for example, let's go to File. Let's select the same file again. And then instead of inserting as attachment, we're going to be selecting this at insert as print out. Okay, so here's the very cool thing. So what it's gonna do is it's going to be converting the PowerPoint file into a PDF file. And then it's going to be inserting it as a printout. So pretty much it's like clicking on this one, right? And then selecting a PDF to insert as a prenup. And you can see here, because the PowerPoint slides, right, There's two slides inside that file and then it just converted it to a PDF and he could see it. It got expanded over here so you can see the entire contents of the slides. So the question right now is, why would you do this right inside the page? So what I'll do is let me just delete this. Let me just delete this too and then have this one zoomed out. So let's go to View. Okay, I'll just zoom out so you can just zoom in and zoom out as needed so that he can see everything in one go. So the reason why we're gonna be having this here is, let's say you're using an iPad or you're using a laptop or a mobile device, then you're taking notes. And one thing that we wouldn't have lectures or seminars right there, slides that's being used. And then what you can do right now is, since we have it here, I can go to Draw and then start taking notes. So for example, let's say this is your favorite, so you could just circle it and then just highlight that. Let's say this is the one that you like the most, okay? So you can just do things and then let's say this one is learn. Okay, So if you could just type in or just write stuff in there. So there's a lot of things you can do with the print outs because it allows you to be, instead of printing it out, literally, are physically, you can do it right on your device. So that's, that's really, really cool. Okay? So that's pretty much for the inserting of printouts, what we can insert as well as pictures. Online video. So pretty much similar to what we did a while ago with the YouTube, right? And then you can insert links as well. So what I'll do right now, I want to focus on the inserting of audio because we can have fun with this. So for example, let's say you're attending a lecture or somebody speaking, and then it's too fast or you won't be able to catch up and taking notes. So what you can do is if you just insert an audio, so let's try it out. I'm just speaking right now and then let's see how it's going to sound like after we stop the recording. Okay. So I've done the audio record so you can just hold on. Let me just zoom in again because we can't see that audio file as well. So we have this one, right? Okay, so since I forgot that we're still in the drawing, a face, you can see over here while I'm trying to click on the audio file is just placing dots all over the place. So what I'll do is let's just go back to the icon sorted. We can select stuff, okay, so now I've selected the audio file and then you can just go play or just go over here to play. And then let's have a look or listen to how it sounds like I'm speaking right now and then let's see how it's going to sound like after we stop the recording. Yeah, that's pretty much the IO. Okay. So you can just go to Insert, insert an audio and then it will use your mic to start recording here. So singles for meeting details if you have Outlook, right, because I don't have it right now. You can just sign in and then you can keep a complete record, half your meeting. And then we have symbols and then equations. So pretty much you have a lot of stuff that you can do here. So for example, I'll just try symbols, okay? You can just add in the emoji as well over here, right? So there's a lot of stuff that you can insert into your pages. So it's not just text, it's not just video. You can start files, printouts, audio so that it makes your entire experience richer. 9. Drawing Tools: Okay, so now let's talk about the drawing tools. So over here what we have is I've zoomed out so that you can see the presentation slides over here, okay, and then we have couple of options. So over here is just selecting of objects or type text. So if you have the Sidak that, then you can move items around inside your page. Okay, so that's the selector, and then we have a Lasso Select as well. So for example, let's say I'll just lasso everything inside. So I'm just holding my left-click and then Nicky, just like in circle and then move objects in a group. So over here, for example, I can just do that or you can also delete them all together. Then over here is insert or remove extra space over here. If I just add some spaces in here, I'm just holding my left-click and then you can just drag them right so that it moves everything down in one go. So that's pretty handy. Okay? And then next is this one. So you have your eraser. So if I have this part over here, let me just clean them up, okay. Alright, so they're all gone. Okay. And then you have your different markers. So over here you just have colors, or even you can have this one as well. Alright, so let's just try this out, okay, over here. So there's a lot different options that you can do. You can change it and then make it even larger, for example, right? So that it becomes very big. Okay, So if you're a writer, if you want to write stuff, scribble stuff, then this is perfect for you. And there's a lot of options as well. So for example, you have your highlighter, right? I'm not exactly familiar with what is called, but there's a lot of different options that you can try and play around it. But the cool thing is if you're not limited to this one's right. So we have your pencil, pen and highlight, or it could just go for the plus button over here, add a pin, right? And then you could just make your own combination or customize whatever you need. Alright, so once we have that, we can just start highlighting everything inside over here. So now it looks like a work of art. Not exactly, but yeah, over here you have a lot of options that you can play around with. You can even right-click on them, modify the tool move left, move right, or even delete them altogether. Okay, So that's pretty much for the pen slash pencil tools. Next thing is we have shapes. Okay, so for shapes, okay, So what I'll do, I'll just add a new page. So for shapes, pretty much the basic shapes that you have over here, okay, you can just drag over here and then you have a shape, right? You have this as well. Okay. It's up to you on how you want your shape to look like, okay, So we have different shapes over here, okay? And then you can even have a graph. So if you want to start plotting something, right? And then as you get to plot the graph over here, so I'll add a new page again, there's another cool feature. So for example, let's just go and use a pen. Alright, let's make this color black. There we go. Okay, so the cool thing with English shape is once we have this selected and then I'll start drawing. Okay? Like shapes. Even though it's not perfect, what it will do is it will modify it and then transform it into the closest best possible shape. So for example, let's say I'm making a triangle, so it's not the best triangle, right? It's a bit wavy on some of the lines. Once I release the mouse, it just magically gets transformed into a triangle. So same thing. Let's say that I'm just making this. It just gets transform as well. Let's say a circle. Okay, that's not a circle. Let's try again. There you go, right? Right. So it just smooths out the imperfections of my drawings. Alright, so that's really, really cool. Okay? Okay, So for example, I'm making this Smiley face. So you can see over here, right? Exists change. So for Campbell, I'm done with ink to shape. Know what I'm making this into a canvas right? Right now. Okay, So I'm just making Smiley face over here. So you can just change this. And that's not really good, but it's really cool because you can just make modifications to your shapes if you want to. Another thing as well. Yes, let's say I'm gonna be changing this to texts. So let's say I'm writing it out like Hello over here. And what I'll do is let's just use the Lasso tool to select the entire texts. And then there's an option called ink to tax. What is going to do is whatever you've scribbled over here. It's going to try to analyze it and then change it into type text. So I'll set this. It becomes hello. Okay, so that's really nice if you're scribbling stuff and then let's say you just decided, I wanted to look more like a type written document that you can just use this functionality. And then one node handles the rest. Okay, So let's try another one. Let's say y. Whoops, I'm still using the Lasso tool. So let's try. Why. Okay, let's just try it out and then select using the Lasso tool over here. Okay? Now it gets selected and then I'll just go into text. So it's not exactly perfect, but I can just move this around, right? Let's say I'll just cut this and then just move it over here. You can see that it's not exactly perfect because it really depends on the spacing. But if your handwriting is more consistent than mine, than one node 1.5, any challenges when it comes to converting your ink into text? 10. Search Tool: So let's talk about the search tool. So searching is very easy inside OneNote because you usefully, what we have selected is pretty much the notebook less, right? So we select a notebook, we go through a section and then we go to a page. But if we want to search for specific content across all of art, like notebooks, it's very easy. We just go straight to the magnifying glass over here, show search, right? And then you can just type in the text that you want to search for. Okay, so if we go for outline, I've already done my search over here. You can dial into a specific notebook. But over here I have all notebooks, so it's going to be searching across all of the pages. And this is the one that it got. So if I select this, it's going to go straight to that page. So it's pretty handy. But another thing is you can also search for tags. So let me just clear this to clear this out. And you can see over here, there's also the option to search by tags. So for example, if we're searching for our to-do list, for example, if you recall, a while ago, I've created to do items I've tagged them has to do. If I select this to do, right, it just shows me the items that I have tagged asked to do. So if I select this, it goes straight to that page. And if you recall from a while ago, this is the list that I have. So that's really handy because for example, if you combine this with tags from awhile ago over here in the Home tab. So if we have our tags and then it can create new tags as well so that it becomes searchable, right? When you try to look for specific stuff in the future. 11. OneNote Web Clipper: Now let's talk about the OneNote Web Clipper. So imagine this scenario. Let's say I'm using my browser, which is Chrome, and then I'm browsing the web. I'm doing some research, for example, or I'm just looking for stuff. And one thing is if I see something that I want to save in my OneNote, normally from a mammal perspective, I would be taking a screenshot or maybe just highlighting text copy paste and then go to my OneNote and then paste it there. The cool thing with OneNote Web Clipper, so it's very easy to search for it. You can just do a quick Google search. So I'm assuming right now that you might be using Chrome, okay? And then we can just go straight to the Chrome webstore and k. And then you can see here one node by paper, since I already have it installed, It's this button is removed from Chrome, but it would normally be installed. Okay, so just click on Install and it's very easy. And then it will go straight to your browser. Since I have it installed, you can see on this corner over here, right, there's this one node button that I can use right away. So I'll just jump over to this page. So this is the page that shows up after you have installed OneNote Web Clipper. So there's a couple of ideas to get started on. What can you clip from the web, travel, recipes, news, inspiration, research, or even shopping. Okay, So what I'll do right now is let's just select this one and then see what's going to happen. So it's going to try to clip, right? You could see over here, this is the article selection. You could change the type of clipping that you want to happen. And then since I'm already signed in to my OneNote, if I click on the location, you could see over here, There's the quick notes, okay, there's courses, There's meetings, and there's the books. Okay. So pretty much it was able to load the notebooks that I already have. So if I open courses, you could see the familiar ones. The sections, we have the Microsoft Office section grouping. We have these sections of the PowerPoint. So it's up to you on where you want to save this. So for example, let's just say I want to save it under Excel. So over here, you have your selections, you have your article, but you just want to bookmark, just saved the link. Or do you want a specific region so that let's say I just want this specific section that gets saved to OneNote. Or do you want the full page? So you can also go for dense higher. Just save it inside OneNote so that let's say you're on the go. You can take it with you and then continue reading it. So it's very easy because everything's inside your browser and there's no need for you to jump over to the OneNote application, okay? So installed this very easy to install, also include the link so that you can install it on our browser. So what I'll do right now is, let's go back here again. So we're good with region. Let's say we're good with this one. I'll just go for a clip. Then there's nothing else that you need to do. And it's going to be doing the heavy lifting for you. It's going to clip the region or it's just going to save whatever selection that you have specified, right? And it's going to go straight to your OneNote. So what I've done right now is I've jumped over to R1 or just to have a quick look, did our clipping work? Okay, so I'm inside the courses notebook and then the axial section. And if you remember, we still don't have any pages inside Excel. So what did we did was we just took a section clipping right from the Chrome extension. And then let's see what's going to happen. So we have the untitled page over here. And then if you notice this one, this is a new page and this is the one that we didn't create. It was created by the web clipper, the OneNote Clipper. And the good thing with this one is it's exactly as what we have done. Okay, there's the link over here just to help you recall where you got it from. And then there's the specific screenshot or section that we highlighted. So install it on your browser so that it makes a copy and pasting or whatever that you need to bookmark. Very easy to do. 12. Share notebooks and pages: Okay, so let's talk about sharing Notebooks and pages inside OneNote. It's very easy to be able to share, okay, so if you're familiar with the OneDrive, Okay, so there's the same concept that you could do. You could also share stuff. You can share files for example. So it's the same concept as well over here. So it's accessible here on the top, right, on the Share button over here. If I click on this. So right now what I have selected, okay, it's the harshest notebook. So you can see over here send link of the courses notebook. Anyone with the link can edit. So if you want to do some collaboration, but if you just want to share, then you could also change, right? With the Allow Editing, There's also the expiration day. There's even a password as well. So just to be sure that it's the intended recipient. So let's just cancel this. Let's say we're happy with the settings. And then you'll just type in the name or email address that you want to share the Notebook. So same thing as spelling. You can also send a copy of the page over here, but what I'll do is just to test it out. So I'm not going to be typing in the name or email address. What I'll do is I'll just copy a link over here. So it's going to create a shareable link that anybody with this link will be able to view and edit the courses notebook. So what I'll do is the link is ready, I'll just copy it. And what I have open right now is an incognito window inside Chrome. And then I'll just paste this in and go to that specific length that we have. Okay, so that we can have a look on how it looks like when we share it with another person. So now it's loading OneNote online, okay, so I'm gonna be discussing one online as well in a separate tutorial. So you can see over here, the view is pretty much the same and that's really cool. It's straight in the browser. You can do it on the mobile phone as well on your mobile browser. And you'll be able to see the same contents. So you can see over here one node, right? Let's say, let's just jump over to the presentation files, right? So pretty much you could see everything as well since the notebook was shared via the OneNote application, right? So you could see the exact same thing on what we're seeing. You can see over here, guest, contributor because I'm not logged in or anything. So it's very easy to share if you just want to jump over and you sharing, just use the share button on the upper right corner. 13. Print Pages: So one node is not just about taking notes, but you can also print them out and have to warrant. So let's discuss about printing the pages, and it's very easy to do so. So I'll just jump over to my work of art over here. Okay, and then let's say I want to print this out. And you can access that quickly on the upper right corner. So I'll just click here and then select Print. And then once we have that, you could just have the familiar settings if you use printing before on Windows. And you could just change the to your printer, the orientation to landscape, then how many copies, and then the color mode if you want it to be in black and white and it pretty much a scaling as well. Then you could just go print and it's gonna get outputted to your printer. 14. OneNote online: Now let's talk about OneNote Online. So let's say you're working on a computer and then you don't have the application installed. So it's very easy to access your OneNote notebooks because there's also the online version, the website that you can just go in on any browser and then be able to view your content. Okay, so I'm just going straight to and then I'm already logged in with the same account as what we've been using for awhile ago. Okay, so over here you can see all of the notebooks. So just to have a look on how it looks like, Let's just go straight to courses. Now let's go to one of our sections and pages that we've been playing around with. Okay, so now once it's finished, loading could see a familiar interface over here. It's very similar to what we're seeing if I jump over here to what we're seeing over here as compared to the OneNote Online. And the cool thing is pretty much, you could do the same thing over here. You could just type in pretty much the stuff that we have been doing. And then whatever you doing here, right, it will get spanked as well to all the one node version is that you're using. So if I just jump over here, right, you'll see a familiar sight, like for example, the ones that do this, that we've done. The links that we placed here. Even my work of art is included as well over here. Okay, so just jump over to OneNote if you want that additional access to a different way of connecting to your OneNote notebooks. Just go to and it's completely free. 15. OneNote 2016: Okay, so there's another free application that you could use or another version of OneNote, which is called OneNote 2016. So it's very easy to access this. You just go to slash download and then you'll be able to download it straight to your computer. And this statement over here, you can see it doesn't expire. Use OneNote for as long as you like. So this is a free version as well, but you might be wondering, why would I use OneNote 2016 over the Windows ten version for example. So what's the difference between the two? I'll quickly walk you through that because I just want to point out the differences between the version. And then based on that, you can decide on which one is a better fit for you. But the good thing is, there are choices available for you to choose from because pretty much near free. So it's up to you on which version that you want to use. So I'll just jump over to 12016 over here, since I'm logged into the same account that we've been using, then pretty much everything over here to notebooks, the courses, the sections over here, right? Even dissection group, they're all synchronized so you could see the same pages as well that we've been doing from a while ago. Especially my work of art over here, if you're familiar with this. Okay, So they're synchronized. So there's nothing like no additional step that I need to do. I just need to log in with the same account and then I'll be able to view the same content that I've been doing. So what I want to point out is there are a couple of differences, especially with the layout, because over here you have your notebooks on the left. And then you have your sections on the top right as tabs over here. And then you have your pages on the right. But pretty much the functionality is the same. It's consistent. It's just in a different location. So you just need to maybe get some familiarity on the differences of where to look for it. So for example, for the notebooks right over here and then forward it sections. If you want to add a new section, you just click this tab over here. And then if you add to add a new page, then you just click the add page over here. Okay, So functionality wise, they are the same. They're the same. So it's just getting used to the different layout. But what I want to point out is there are some additional options that you could do with OneNote 2016. So I'll just walk you through that. So first thing is exporting of notebooks. If I just jumped straight to File and then I click Export, there's that selection of exporting the current page section or the notebook. And the cool thing with this one is if you want to have a backup on your hard drive or maybe you're doing regular backups, for example, then you can just export everything and then save it to your hard drive or a different location. So very handy to create backups. Then next is I want to discuss about the Insert tab off OneNote 2016. So if you're familiar with the Microsoft Office applications, Let's say you're using word, you would use in Excel. Then this Insert tab would come out as something that's familiar to you as well because there's more options you could see. So for example, there's even record audio over here, right? Inserting they time, date and time. Okay. So there's more options, but it's very close to what you're seeing inside the Microsoft Office applications. So that's where the Insert tab. Next thing is, I want to discuss about the history. So afford a history because the handy thing over here is you can access page versions quickly from this tab. So let's say, let's go to the course outline. Let's see what happened over time. So I'll just select page versions over here. If I select page versions, you can see over here like started with a blank slate and then I started editing. And then the next thing is I added more stuff over here. The cool thing is you could just go over quickly on the history of the changes. If you want to undo or you want to review on what has changed over time, then this is perfect for you. So let's just close this. I'll just click on here and then I'll go hide page versions. I'm back to our original view. Okay, so that's where history. Next one that I want to show is for drawing. So let's go to the Draw tab. There's a different option that we haven't seen in the Windows ten version, which is this one, Ink to Math. So let's say, let's just add a new page over here. And then I'll just try drawing some stuff, Let's say one plus. Okay? So what I'll do is let me just use the Lasso Select so you could see the functionality is exactly the same as what we've been doing with Windows ten. But let's use the ink to Matt and see what's going to happen. If I use ink to Matt, it's going to convert it to the right. It's like tax, but it's more focused towards numerical expressions. If we're good with this one, Let's go insert and it gets changed to one plus two. But the cool thing with this one, if I select this again, Let's say you're writing algebra, the algebraic expressions right over here. I'm just making this up. I'm not even sure what the answer would be. Okay. But the cool thing is, if you're having trouble or challenges, like the exponents are fractions, for example, then this makes it very easy to you. If you're teaching somebody in math, for example, then this is perfect, okay? You can use the increment function so that you can just write it out instead of typing it out. And then OneNote, we'll do the rest for you. So once we're good, Let's go insert and then we're good to go. Okay. Let me just remove this because that's the one that I did from a while ago. This is perfect. Okay. So next thing is for review. So I'll just jump back here to our course outline. Let's go to Review and then there's an option called spelling. So this is similar to the office. Let's say you're using word, right? And then you want to have a quick spelling check of everything and receiving a sorrows. There's also research option. So for spelling, let's say you miss type something over here. Or let's say delicious changed thing to this one. I'll just go for spelling and S2 gonna do the suggestions for you. So OneNote is fine. Okay, I'll just ignore this. And there's the thank you. So it's able to suggest what are the corrections that you could do over here. Okay? Spelling check is complete. We're good and it's now keen. Next thing is for review. So for review can also go for password protection. So if you want to set a password, then you can do it as well for this section over here. So you can see current section, section one node for Windows ten isn't password protected, then you can set a password so that he can restrict access as well. Okay, So that's pretty much the quick overview for OneNote 2016. So it really depends on your needs, on what you see over here. Then you can just decide 12016 or OneNote for Windows ten for you. But pretty much the core functionality, it's there and it's up to you to decide on which version is better for you. 16.
