OneNote has multiple options that allow users to customize program settings to best suit their needs. This training video leads viewers through setting a default font, font size, and font color. Users may also apply background color to pages as well as add rule lines to more closely mimic OneNote’s paper-based roots. This video also reviews other exam objectives such as docking Quick Note windows, modifying the page tab location, and showing the navigation bar to the right side of the screen.
