Microsoft OneNote is an application for storing notes and other graphic and text data. It is included in the standard "set" of Windows operating system and, as a consequence, is absolutely free. By the way, the program has a UWP-version adapted to work on touch screens. The latter supports handwriting.

The functionality of the note editor is very similar to that of Word. It has a characteristic tabbed interface, contains drawing tools, allows you to change the location of graphical objects by dragging and dropping, apply different formatting parameters, use hyperlinks, and so on. The new version of Microsoft OneNote allows you to add videos from Office Mix, YouTube and Vimeo to your notes.

OneNote is closely integrated with other Microsoft products. For example, integration with the Edge browser allows you to save web pages for offline viewing, and close communication with Outlook makes it easy to share notes (or parts of them) with others. You can also import materials from Excel, PowerPoint, Visio and other programs. Automatic data synchronization with mobile applications is supported. In general, Microsoft OneNote is an important part of the Microsoft ecosystem.

The program has implemented the functions of organization, cataloguing, sorting and searching for the notes created. In particular, it is allowed to add tags and short descriptions.

In addition to the functions of a personal notebook, OneNote also acts as a task scheduler and calendar planner. The program requires a Microsoft account with the user.

The developers behind OneNote did a nice job creating a tool that doesn’t derail your train of thought. The workspace is clean and for the most part, the use of toolbar ribbons along the top keeps everything you need to create just a click or two away.

OneNote works for copying web addresses and web articles. If you like to have all your resources in one place and want to organize them by topic or otherwise, OneNote is perfect. I have used OneNote only slightly for entering fresh data and ideas and it seems to work well. I just love that instead of having to copy or print documents or webpages all over the place I can have everything in one place.
