When you Install Microsoft Office in your computer, a small add-on “Send To OneNote” for Internet Explorer gets installed automatically. This is a very useful feature, which allows you to import important information directly from your browser to OneNote. But If you are using Firefox Or Google Chrome as your Browser then you have to follow this guide to get similar functionality in Firefox or Chrome.
Currently Microsoft doesn’t provide any solution to get the “Send To OneNote” like feature in any other browser like Firefox or Google Chrome. But using a 3rd party extension called “Clip To OneNote” you can get the similar functionality, and the best part is that this extension is available for both Firefox and Chrome. Today I will show you how to use the extension in Chrome. The method for Firefox is also same so Firefox user can try this out by yourself. If you are a Google Chrome user then Download it from “Chrome Web Store” and Firefox user can Download it from Here. The extension is compatible with both OneNote 2007 and OneNote 2010.
After you have installed the extension, go to the “Options” and select the path to your OneNote Executable file and click “save” to save your preference. Just look at the screen-shot below to get the idea, what I am talking about.
Now go to the web-page and select the information you want to send to OneNote. Then Right-Click on it and select “Clip To OneNote” option from the context menu.
Your selected text will be available as a new “Side Note” within your OneNote Notebook and will be shown to you in a pop-up OneNote Window as seen in the screenshot below.
This is a very useful Add-on for OneNote users. Install this add-on today and increase your productivity.
