Create friendly links from text in Microsoft OneNote

Whenever you type a URL in Microsoft OneNote, it is automatically converted to a link that you or other readers of the notebook can tap to open.

You can also create more friendly looking links from existing text in your notes so that readers have better information about a link before tapping it.

Notes:
