16onenote00 Use OneNote to Organize Your Life!

OneNote is one of the best pieces of software available for use with Windows. No other software on any platform can match what OneNote can do. In this guide you will learn why OneNote is so good and how you can begin to use it to organize your life.

Why OneNote?

OneNote can help you with the following: school notes, work plans, journal writing, plan making, web design, and much more!

Personally I use OneNote for my school notes and I use it to draft and store articles I publish for mintywhite.com.

How do I get started?

I have just put together a few screenshots for you – hopefully, these will inspire you to create your own master piece. OneNote’s sections break down into three parts:

Notebooks - Think of them as Years/Semesters/Projects etc.
Sections - Months/Classes/Milestones etc.
Pages - Days/Lectures/Steps etc.

Here are three screenshots showing how I have my mintywhite ideas and articles set up. After looking at these, you can get started yourself!

    I have this and had no idea what it does. When I opened it, there is a good guide made my Microsoft to help you too. I suggest you use oneNote if you have it!

    This program is so stupid. I can’t see how it is any better than a pen and paper or a list in an MS Word document. And why are your lists so basic? Can’t you just remember to do this mundane stuff? My theory on software like this is that it only appeals to people like to keep busy by organising” themselves because they don’t have real work to do.

    I bet this comment never gets posted to your web page!

      You clearly have no need for OneNote. Move on.
