Microsoft OneNote is a note-taking program available as a stand-alone program or as part of the Office suite. You can sort your notes into separate notebooks, and store text, pictures, audio, video and Web pages as notes. As part of the Office suite, OneNote is integrated with other Office applications such as Word and Outlook. You can send emails from Outlook to OneNote as notes and can also send your Outlook tasks to OneNote notes.
