A Note About OneNote

Get Organized with OneNote

Are you planning an event, working on a new curriculum unit, gathering ideas and resources for a project, or just trying to get your life in order? Microsoft OneNote could be your answer. You may have seen it listed in your printer list or within the Microsoft Office folder in the Start menu.

Described as a digital planner and note taking program, OneNote is much more than that. Think of it as a digital version of  the one notebook or a collection of notebooks that  you just couldn't live without.  OneNote can contain photos, videos, audio files, meeting notes, random thoughts, documents, highlights from websites (complete with a source link and the date/time of access), and so much more all neatly organized into tabbed sections.  Each section can contain as many pages as you need to organize your work and/or personal life. Any part of a notebook can be shared with others or password protected from being viewed by others. It is one of the best research and collaboration tools available for students as well. All that is needed to get started is Office 2007 or 2010 and a Windows Live Account for accessing your notebook/s online.

#1  Do you need to get a handle on your email?  Outlook 2010 can help you get started cleaning up your inbox or any other folder.  On the Home tab, click the drop down arrow next to "Clean Up" and choose "Clean Up Folder".  Outlook will remove any redundant messages, leaving only those that contain new information.  The removed messages will be sent to the Deleted Items folder. Don't worry....Outlook will not delete messages that contain attachments.
