onenote notebook structure

Since there are so many ways that you can use OneNote, you will most likely want some advice about structuring your notebooks. Read on to find out how it's done.

OneNote Notebook Structure

After you have set up OneNote, you will have one notebook by default. 
This is automatically synched online over OneDrive. You should use this as your main, personal notebook. Doing so will make things much more simple to set up.

Many people have a work notebook, with everything that relates to their job or career. Name this whatever you like, so that you can easily remember what it is for.

Some sort of reference notebook is also a good idea to create. You can fill this with things that you would like to keep for later use, like web clippings or information that you would like to keep.

There is no limit to the amount of notes that you can create. Maybe you would like to have a digital journal, which will be safe from prying eyes. Since you can use passwords, and your computer can also be locked with a code, OneNote makes the perfect journal for all types of things.



You can get extensions for your web browser, depending on what you are using. The Google Chrome extension is very handy. With it, you can quickly press the shortcut on your browser, and save the link, and a description of what it is, to your OneNote.

You can also clip entire webpages, so that you can access them without having to go online to view the content.

There are a lot of different ways that you can clip content from your computer, using various tools.

That is one of the greatest things about OneNote: it works with a lot of different programs, operating systems, and devices.
