OneNote in Windows 10: how to change the client of a popular web service annotations in the new system?
OneNote client application synchronized eponymous web service notes from Microsoft that the new version of Windows 10 is part of standard functionality. OneNote has changed with the operating system, in version 10 you will see a similar, but much of it has the application that was prepared by the awarding of software giant even for Windows 8. OneNote has not only become more convenient due to the ability to display all of the modern apps in a regular window, not full screen, but also added some functionality.
The app is a compact version of the full OneNote part of Microsoft Office but, it is not hard minimalism with hidden and appears only on demand menu, as in Windows 8.1. In OneNote for the new version of the system embedded interface type Ribbon with a horizontal toolbar, divided into thematic tabs. But in General, the design and organization of the applications are now under a touch version of Office 2016, the final of which was submitted to Microsoft last week.
Regular OneNote offers basic tools for creating notes and further work with them. As in any other client application OneNote, Windows 10 has a workspace as a blank sheet where anywhere you can take notes – text, handwritten (for touchscreen devices), notes, drawings, notes and attachments. Adding new pages of notes carried in the left pane that displays existing notes of a section. New sections are added to the Central panel with the tabs, respectively, of the existing sections of the notes. The context menu is invoked on the section name opens access to a small list of options to control them.
To create a parent hierarchy of instance storage notes — new notebook OneNote — appearing on call main menu on the left.
Windows 10 does not include work with «charms» pop-up screen on the right panel, as in 8.1, so the access parameters of the application is familiar to Microsoft Office products way – the link in the main menu.
And here is a list of the custom settings, since Windows 8 has not changed. You can select a different account, turn off automatic syncing of notes and their attached images and change the notebook section of notes in the margins which will be displayed in the application window and where, in particular, will contain notes created using the system function «Share».
By the way, about her. OneNote’s a regular in the list of applications, working in conjunction with the system function «Share» that Windows 10 is not simply migrated from Windows 8.1, but filled with new possibilities, in particular within the functionality to create a web of notes within the Microsoft Edge.
The contents of the web pages Microsoft Edge and other applications in a couple of clicks to send to the social network, mail, web services notes. If only the last client application was installed on the computer.
Like Microsoft Edge, OneNote tightly integrated into the system, and any of the notes directly from the application window also a couple of clicks, you can post it in the social network, to send to alternative web service Evernote notes or add in a regular email client to send to the recipients.
Call function «Share» button in the upper right corner of the application window.
Interface type Ribbon at times convenient Metro style apps in Windows 8.1, with hidden controls. Thematic tabs gently open the eyes only a specific part of functionality that not only allows you to quickly adapt to new software product, and makes it more comfortable further work with him. As for the content Ribbon panel, here OneNote largely inferior to their counterparts in the web version of OneNote Online, and version full programs in Microsoft Office.
The main tab has the basic tools for formatting text. And here you will encounter, perhaps the only flaw of the app. Surely many will be the question to Microsoft: why is it possible to change font, subscript and Superscript, bold, italic, and the font size cannot be changed? It is illogical somehow. One additional button the application format would not have gone beyond minimalism. However, if you wish, we can format the notes text, inserting in OneNote, copied from other text editors. In the app the text from the clipboard comes with preserving the original formatting.
Here, in the main toolbar tab notes you can add different label.
The Insert tab has been added to OneNote tables, links, and attachments – pictures, audio recordings, e-books, documents and other file types. In rare cases you can even add even video. Why rare? OneNote has a limit on the file size to 100 MB.
In the tab «Draw» are available, the minimum necessary tools for creating primitive drawings.
The View tab contains the zoom buttons and the ability to set the background notes in the box and in the line of various sizes.
On small screens note you can always, if necessary, to expand, hiding the left side panel.
Any of the notebooks, any of its sections, any of the notes you can pin tiles to the start menu.
To the pinned note books, sections and notes in any moment you can return by opening them in the application window for a direct link from the start menu.
Data OneNote, as in the case with other client programs the web service notes from Microsoft are synchronized automatically. There is a possibility of data synchronization on user demand. Turning off the computer in haste, it will be much safer to press the sync option to be sure to see my last notes on another computer, any other client application or web interface OneNote.
Sync option (like a separate notebook, or all together) available in the number of commands of the context menu on one of the notebooks.
