On this page, you can learn how to insert files into notes as attachments, printouts, or by sending them to MS OneNote from another program.
There are three ways to insert a file into your notes: as an attachment, as a printout, or by sending it to OneNote from another program. Which is best depends on how you plan to use the file after you’ve inserted it.
Attaching a file (such as a Microsoft Word document) to a page in OneNote places a copy of that file in your notes. The file appears as an icon that you can double-click to open and edit the contents of the file.
Attached files are stored as part of their associated notebook. If you move a notebook to another location, any inserted files move with the notebook.
Attaching a file as a printout places a picture of its contents on a page in OneNote. You can’t edit printouts like regular notes, so they’re a good choice if you want to keep the original formatting.
TIP: File printouts work just like inserted pictures. You can resize them and move them anywhere on the page.
You can insert Microsoft Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations, or Internet Explorer Web pages into your notes by sending them to OneNote directly from any of these programs.
