Writing quick notes
When you want to jot down a note but can’t decide where to
store it, or you want to jot down a note without first opening
OneNote 2013, write a quick note. (In versions of OneNote prior
to 2013, quick notes were called side notes.) After you write a
quick note, it is stored in the Quick Notes section (located below
the list of open notebooks in the Notebooks pane) until you
delete it or move it to a page or section in a notebook.
Write quick notes in the Quick Note window. This window offers
the Home, Insert, Draw, View, and Pages tabs for formatting
and handling the quick notes you write. Click the Close button
to close the Quick Note window after you write your quick note.
TIP If the Send to OneNote icon doesn’t appear in the
notification area, click File and then, in the Backstage view, click
the Options tab. In the OneNote Options dialog box, click Display,
select the Place OneNote Icon In The Notification Area Of The Taskbar
check box, and then click OK.
TIP You can also open the Send To OneNote window by
clicking the Send To OneNote button on the View tab in
OneNote or pressing Windows key+N. Also, if OneNote is open, the
Send To OneNote icon might appear on the taskbar. Click it to open the
Send To OneNote window.
