OneNote is 20 years old next year! It’s hard to believe I know! But it seems that masses have only now finally discovered OneNote. Insiders tell me that OneNote use went through the roof last year as people found themselves working from home because of the pandemic. So here are 3 OneNote shortcuts you need to know about.
Before we get to the 3 OneNote Shortcuts: We’re Celebrating OneNote!
And to celebrate 20 years of OneNote, we’re announcing something special for the channel. Over the last three years we created a OneNote training series that we kept exclusively for our training customers. But we’ve now decided to launch that series – free of charge – on the oztabletpc YouTube channel. It will go live on the 1st of September, so subscribe now, ring the bell, and join us on social media to be ready for the release.
There will be a separate training playlist for the OneNote Desktop and Windows 10 versions. We’re going to update it over the next year as the latest OneNote updates ship. So go ahead and bookmark the playlists that we will link below this video.
Now, let’s get on with the OneNote Keyboard quick tips. These tips work on both OneNote for Windows 10 and the OneNote desktop version, and they are some of the tools that make OneNote a content creators dream.
OneNote Keyboard Shortcuts
- Bullet points – To create a quick bullet point list, hit control and full stop on your keyboard. There is no faster way to create a bullet point list, and I wish Microsoft would bring this shortcut to Word, Outlook, and PowerPoint too!
- Numbered Lists – Like bullet points, but just next door, control and the forward slash will get you a numbered list.
- The tab key indents text – as you’d expect – but if you type something first and then press tab, you’ll get a table! Type some more and press tab again to get another column. And press enter to add a row to your table! You could create a Table from the insert menu, but this method is far faster, and easier.
Ok, so there are the three keyboard shortcuts that can save you tonnes of time working with text in OneNote. Practice them ten times and you’ll develop muscle memory so that you don’t even need to think about them anymore. There are another 10 keyboard shortcuts that I want to tell you about, but I wanted to keep this video short, so here’s a link if you want to check them out.
