Screen Clipping and Microsoft OneNote 2010

Microsoft OneNote is a great pro

Microsoft OneNote is a great program for capturing and organizing information from different sources such as email and web pages. There are several different methods for adding information into OneNote including inserting entire web pages or email messages see link below to prior article with details on these methods. Another method for quickly added information into OneNote is to use a screen clipping which captures a portion of the screen to be added to OneNote.

The advantage of using a screen clipping is that it allows for a portion of information to be added to OneNote instead of an entire page of information. For example, instead of having to add an entire web page in order to save a recipe the screen clipping can be used to only capture the recipe.

Listed below are the different screen clipping options available for OneNote. Happy clipping!

Add Screen Clipping to Notes

  1. Browse to the website or display the information that is to be inserted into OneNote.

  2. Open the page in OneNote where the information is to be inserted and click on the area of the page where the screen clipping should be placed.

  3. From the Insert Menu, select Screen Clipping.

  4. The screen will turn a transparent white with a selection pointer. Drag the pointer over the content to be clipped until the rectangle covers the area.

  3. The screen will turn a transparent white with a selection pointer. Drag the pointer over the content to be clipped until the rectangle covers the area.
