FYI
We recently wrote an in-depth comparison of Evernote vs. OneNote and concluded that both are great, but are each useful for different people in different circumstances.

Kind of long and involved, but you don't need another piece of software to create an infographic if you have PowerPoint.

There's a whole bevy of goodies out there on the web that can help you earn that diploma, and we're going to show you the be...

Have any libraries tried using OneNote this way?
OneNote is the best alternative for taking notes, but don't write it off as a one-trick-pony. OneNote's deep links into the wider Microsoft Office ecosystem make it a powerful piece of software, way beyond making lists or storing notes. If you've ever wondered whether a wiki could help organize your thoughts, a document built in OneNote is a great way to…

Microsoft's OneNote app has been cross-platform for some time now, but one of the big barriers of moving from a service like Evernote has been the lack of full support for importing existing notes....

You can also use the drawing tool in PowerPoint to create vector graphics.
Want to learn how to use Illustrator but don't want to subscribe to Adobe Creative Cloud? Or need to access its features on the go while using someone else's computer?

FYI
Windows 10 saves a list of Wi-Fi networks you connect to along with their passphrases and other settings. If you want to set your Wi-Fi network up from scratch–something that’s occasionally necessary to fix connection problems–you’ll need to make Windows “forget” the Wi-Fi network.

FYI
As a tool for project management, Microsoft OneNote has many useful features. One of those features is the availability of templates. From a project overview to meeting notes to to-do lists, OneNote definitely has you covered. If you're unsure of exactly how templates can be useful in your project or what you can do with them, here…
