I did not really use OneNote a lot until within the last 6 months or so, but have now become a convert to the ease of use and electronic filing cabinet that it offers. OneNote is really easy to use as it adds a right click context menu option so that on any text or image you can Send to OneNote the text, image, webpage etc.
“With Microsoft OneNote 2010 you can collect and organize everything you need—notes, photos, videos, and web links— for any project you are working on. OneNote keeps the information you need at your fingertips and, with powerful search capabilities, you can easily find exactly what you are looking for. Toss those paper-based notebooks in the recycling bin—you’ve got a digital notebook now!”
I find that I use OneNote a lot more in work and now at home to save webpages and clips of text to a specific folder, as in various categories like Recipes, Windows tech questions/answers etc.
Another of the advantages of OneNote 2010 is that you can from many images extract the text.
From this image
you can get this text
and all from right clicking the image and choosing Copy Text from Picture and then pasting it into a blank area of the OneNote page.
The possibilities in using OneNote are pretty endless so if you have OneNote as part of your Office package then do try it out.
