How to Install Microsoft Onenote

by Kate Bruscke

Microsoft OneNote, a component of Microsoft's Office suite of products, is a program designed to help you gather and organize notes and related references, like Web pages, images, spreadsheets and the like, into convenient files called "notebooks". You can purchase Microsoft OneNote as part of Office 2007 or as a stand-alone upgrade, either by placing in a product disk or by purchasing online and downloading the installer from Microsoft. In either case, installing OneNote is a quick process.

Insert product disk or doubleclick the folder where you have downloaded the OneNote installer.

Click "Run" to start the installation wizard.

Click "Next" until you reach the terms and conditions, then click "I Agree".

Type in the 25 character product key when prompted to do so. This product key is located on the disk, disk packaging, the product's Certificate of Authenticity or in a confirmation email when you purchased online.

Click "Finish" to complete installation of OneNote.
