How to Insert a PowerPoint Into OneNote

Microsoft OneNote is a valuable tool for organizing your thoughts so you can avoid having a workspace cluttered with handwritten notes on scraps of paper. It is particularly useful when working on large projects where you need to keep track of many resource materials. Use OneNote to attach a variety of documents to a note page, including spreadsheets, Adobe PDF files, Word documents and PowerPoint presentations. You can insert files as links, or insert the entire file so you can review the document at a glance.
