Microsoft OneNote is a program that helps you store all of your important ideas, journal entries, and to-do lists in one place. The utility provides you with plenty of useful note editing options, gives you access to a comprehensive help manual, and allows you to print or share the stored information with just a few clicks.

The first thing you need to do before taking any notes is to enter the credentials of your Microsoft account. You can create a new account on the homepage of the developer if necessary. Afterwards, you can log in within the app and start typing your notes, organize them based on their content, and share the information with the world.

You can attach images located on your local directories, tables, annotations, geometrical shapes, etc. What's more, the application comes with an integrated audio recording utility which comes in handy if you want to add a sound file to your note. The output quality is excellent.

My only issue with this program is the fact that it supports only one output format when exporting your notes - PDF. Still, you can print the notes directly from the program's interface or share them via email with just a few clicks.

With that being said, I'd say it's worth trying out this note taking utility from the Microsoft company. It comes with many useful features, works flawlessly, and is free. So, you have nothing to lose if you decide to give it a shot.
