OneNote Tips: Use Quick Notes as the OneNote Inbox

Previous iterations of the OneNote strategy recommendations used a section named ‘Inbox’.  This section was the entry point for all notes coming into the OneNote system. Actually, OneNote already has such an entry point: Quick Notes.

Quick Notes is a default section in OneNote, with special features.  For instance, ⊞ Win+N creates a new note located in Quick Notes.  So, let’s go with the flow.  ALL new notes should start in Quick Notes.  Whenever you start taking notes, either use the ⊞ Win+N combination or click Add Page within the Quick Notes section.  Once you have finished with the note, move it to the appropriate location.
