Insert notes from the web into OneNote

If you want to save information that you come across in a web search, OneNote is the perfect place for it. By using Internet Explorer and OneNote together, you can capture web pages and add them into your notes.

Use Internet Explorer to send a web page to OneNote

  1. In Internet Explorer, open the page you want to capture.

  2. Right-click a blank area of the page and click Send to OneNote.

  3. In the dialog box that opens, choose a location for the page, and then click OK.

    If you don't like the way a web page looks after you’ve added it to your notebook, you can undo the action by pressing Ctrl+Z.

Note: Another way to send web content to OneNote is to add the OneNote Web Clipper to your browser. It works with Internet Explorer, Edge, Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. Open your browser, and go to www.onenote.com/clipper.

Capture only part of a web page and send it to OneNote

You can capture part of a web page as a screen clipping instead of sending a web page to OneNote. Screen clippings are snapshots of your computer screen that you can file away anywhere in your notebook.

To use keyboard shortcuts to capture only a part of the screen, press Windows+Shift+S, and when the screen dims, select the area you want to capture. (If you’re Windows 8.0 or earlier, press Windows+S.) When you create a screen clipping using the keyboard shortcut, OneNote displays the Select Location in OneNote dialog box so you can choose where to send the clipping.

Send an entire Web page to your notes

If you use Internet Explorer and Microsoft Office OneNote 2007 on the same computer, you can use the Send to OneNote button to quickly copy some or all of the information on a Web page to your notes.

Note: Many Web pages contain complex formatting and style information. If the Web content that you want loses formatting when you copy it to OneNote, try capturing the content as a screen clipping. For more information, see Use screen clippings to capture information quickly.

  1. In Internet Explorer, open the page that you want to copy to your notes.

  2. On the Internet Explorer command bar, click Send to OneNote Button image .

    Tip: If the Send to OneNote button is not visible, click Tools on the Internet Explorer command bar, and then click Send to OneNote.

    In OneNote, the copied page is placed in the Unfiled Notes section. You can move this page to any new or existing section in any of your open notebooks. For more information, see Find and organize Unfiled Notes.
