Basics of OneNote for Windows 10

OneNote for Windows 10 - Learn it in Less Than 30 Minutes

I've tried the others, and I think Microsoft OneNote is the best note taking software out there.

Since 2013 OneNote has helped me organize my research and notes for the real estate appraisals in my day job.

Recently, an updated version of OneNote was released, OneNote for Windows 10. OneNote for Windows 10, or simply called OneNote, is an ideal way for you to store your notes and research. It is a great tool!

This course will get you from beginner to fully functional in less than 30 minutes.


"OneNote is a great program when it’s used to its fullest capabilities. This OneNote for Windows 10 tutorial course is an invaluable tool for anyone looking to be inspired to use and wanting to get the most out of digital interactive notebooks!"

I'm a OneNote blogger, fan and daily user of this productivity tool. I run a blog mostly about OneNote at www.jareddecamp.com.

Since 2013 I have been using OneNote to brain dump all my thoughts, cares, dreams, and "I better not forget this" stuff. Through my experiences, I think I have a little something to share with you. And I have definitely been learning things from the community of OneNote fans. Thanks to anyone that has shared tips and tricks.

My Beginning with OneNote

I first started using OneNote while at work. My day job is as an analyst at a commercial real estate appraising company. This work requires extensive research, analysis, and report writing.

Like many of you, I use Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel heavily in my work. But I needed something to help me keep my research organized, and the physical binders other employees use wasn't really doing it for me. I mean, I'm the guy that started a recycling program in the dorm at college. I can't print a bunch of paper without a little piece of me dying.

Thankfully, one day in the office I saw a coworker using what I would later find out was OneNote. I asked him about it and have since been blown away by how awesome it is and how familiar it is to the other Office products.

Fast forward to today, and I want to teach and inspire others in their use of OneNote to help you reach your professional and personal goals. Plus, the Microsoft OneNote initiatives of OneNote in education are something I can get behind (although I'm not affiliated with Microsoft in any way and the views and training expressed are mine alone).

Personal Me

I was born and raised in Southern California and currently live in Santa Monica, California. My wife and I were married in 2010 with no kids or pets yet. My time spent outside of my day job and this website is with family, friends, an off and on routine of running, reading a book a month, and fishing whenever possible.
