Send to OneNote 2007 powertoy

  • Comments 45

Finally a powertoy that I wrote! This is a small application that I blogged about before where I included the source and rest of the application, but here is the final version of this Send to OneNote from Windows Explorer. Here are the steps to get to a machine near you:

  1. Install OneNote 2007 + .Net Framework 2.0
  2. Download the installer from here:
  3. Install it!

Now when you right-click on a file in Windows Explorer you will see a new option under the "Send To" menu for OneNote 2007 like this:

Choosing that option will send the file to OneNote as a new page in the Unfiled Notes section, like this:



  1. You can send more than one file all to the same page.
  2. You cannot send folders.
  3. If you select folders + files the files will go into OneNote however the folder will not, you won't get an error about this.
  4. If your Unfiled Notes section is password protected or read only you will get an error message that isn't too pretty.
  5. You cannot change the destination section, it will always go to the Unfiled Notes section

Download now:

If you would like to improve anything please go ahead and download the source and modify it as you see fit!

Also a special thanks to Michelle Wong from the Test team who helped find bugs and test our my powertoy, *tips hat*

  • Daniel,

    I love it!  I use OneNote as a file repository (on top of everything else that I do), so this is great for me.  One feature request:

    It would be nice to have the capability to specify which section to send to.

    For now, however, it will save me a "drag and drop".



  • Dan Escapa is on a tear releasing a set of new PowerToys for OneNote 2007. What's going on is that a

  • great job, Dan! Thanks for doing this.

    It would be great to have two options on that Send To right click: Print to OneNote 2007 and Send File to OneNote 2007.

    At first, I thought the powertoy would allow me to print to OneNote 2007 with Send To right click.

    thanks for the good work

  • I figured out how to add the printer as a Send To option. thanks for getting the juices flowing!

  • I have Vista Home Premium and OneNote 2007. I downloaded the Send to OneNote  powertoy, and get the option under the 'send to' for onenote, but when I try to send a file, the message "Couldn't get your Unfiled Notes Location".

    Any suggestions?



  • Dan,

    I invoked your name ("Dan, please read this...") in a Reply at the ON discussion forum but here is the gist of that request:

    Can a user create a persistent list of "Send to..." Sections in the flyout of the "Move to Another Section" right-click command?

    Another needed PowerToy!

  • I LOVE OneNote .. I use it all the time as my one shop note taker and with a tablet pc it is even better

  • it would be awesome if there were a possibility to print a file to

    onenote and simultaneously attach the original source.

    However, great work so far !!

  • I really want the feature back from onenote 2003 that allowed me to drag a file into a notebook and have the file copied into the folder the current section was in.  I also liked the way it linked to it using <file:filename.ext>

    Is there any way this powertoy could be modified to do this or could the drag-n-drop event be modified by a new powertoy to allow this "copy actual file to notebook" feature to work as it did in onenote 2003?

    Furthermore, when I copy file to notebook in onenote 2007 and the file is a powerpoint, I can't open it by double clicking the resulting icon.  Not sure what's going on with that.  Word & Excel files & txt files seem to work ok.  Anyone else have this problem?
