Taking Notes to Another Level with Microsoft OneNote 2013

Taking a screen clipping

To capture part of an open window on your computer as a screenshot, take a screen clipping. For example, you can capture part of a webpage or application screen in a screen clipping to preserve it in a OneNote 2013 note or take notes about it.

Before you begin, display the item that you want to capture on your screen. For example, to capture part of a webpage, display the webpage in your browser. Then, switch to OneNote and take the screen clipping.

Take a screen clipping

  1. Display the webpage, file, or application window that you want to capture.

  2. In OneNote, on the ribbon, click the Insert tab.

  3. In the Images group, click Screen Clipping.

    The screen dims temporarily.

  4. Drag on the screen to define the portion of the screen that you want to capture. When you release the mouse button, the area you defined is captured as a screenshot and inserted into the note.
