What is Microsoft OneNote 2010?

Microsoft OneNote is a computer program for free-form information gathering and multi-user collaboration. It can gather users' notes (handwritten or typed), drawings, screen clippings, and audio commentaries and share them with other users of Microsoft OneNote over the Internet. In Microsoft OneNote, users can enter typed text via keyboard, create tables, and insert pictures. However, unlike a word processor, users can simply write anywhere on a virtually unbounded document window by just clicking there.


The most used version is 14.0.7015.1000, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. Upon installation and setup, it defines an auto-start registry entry which makes this program run on each Windows boot for all user logins. The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The main program executable is ONENOTE.EXE. The software installer includes 22 files.
