Video: Docking your OneNote window

If you do a lot of research, say you're using the Internet and you like to take notes at the same time in OneNote, you are going to like the new view option called the Dock to Desktop view. It allows you to move the OneNote program window to the side of your Windows' desktop where it docks alongside other Windows such as a Web browser or another Microsoft Office program for example. Let's say we want to review some content from a presentation in PowerPoint while we take notes here in our notebook in OneNote. As we flip back and forth between the two programs we are able to view the contents andwe'd have to switch back to take our notes.

Docking your OneNote window

If you do a lot of research, say you're using the Internet and you like to take notes at the same time in OneNote, you are going to like the new view option called the Dock to Desktop view. It allows you to move the OneNote program window to the side of your Windows' desktop where it docks alongside other Windows such as a Web browser or another Microsoft Office program for example. Let's say we want to review some content from a presentation in PowerPoint while we take notes here in our notebook in OneNote. As we flip back and forth between the two programs we are able to view the contents andwe'd have to switch back to take our notes.

Wouldn't it be nice if we could see everything at one time? When we switch back to OneNote, we can access that new view by going to the Quick Access Toolbar and clicking the Dock to Desktop button. You could also use the keyboard shortcut, Ctrl+Alt+D, or you could also access this from the View tab on the Ribbon. However you do it, watch what happens when you select Dock to Desktop. Over here on the right-hand side is where you'll find OneNote. It minimizes the user interface and shows you only your current page alongside the other window.

You can see everything fits perfectly here, allowing you to see everything you need at once. So, you can be viewing the content, you could be over here on the right-hand side taking your notes, and when you want to switch back to Normal View, here in OneNote, you'll notice the other option on the Quick Access Toolbar is actually Full Page View. That's not Normal View. So, to access Normal View, you actually go to the View tab on the minimized Ribbon. This opens it up and you'll notice that one of the options here in the Views group is Normal View.

Select that and OneNote is back to Normal View. PowerPoint, the other program we were working with, if switch back to it is back to maximized as well. So, if you are one of those people who likes to use OneNote to take notes while researching or accessing content from another program, the new Dock to Desktop view will come in very handy.
