Send to OneNote 2007 powertoy

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*

  • The Send to OneNote 2007 addin for opera would indeed be very welcome.  I can send formatted content including images and links from IE7 to onenote [probably the only reason i still use IE].  Being able to do the same from opera would let me have all my notes in the same place.

  • A few astute readers pointed out I (intentionally) missed a few addins the OneNote team finished last

  • Thanks for a great utility.  I have one question: is it possible to send items to OneNote without the OneNote window opening? It can be annoying when OneNote keeps grabbing the focus and opening in front of the application in which I'm working.

  • I have the same question as Simon... is there any way to senditems to onenote without having the onenote window opening?  It totally destroys my train of thought and so makes onenote useless as a quick notetaking tool.

    Also, is there any way to have onenote automatically tag notes based on keywords in the item?

    For now I'm going to stick with EverNote as it does both of these things. But I'm a heavy Outlook user and would like to make use of the integrated power of Outlook & Onenote!

  • - Send internet browser to OneNote 2007 -

    I want to send selected area of internet browser to OneNote 2007.

    Is it possible?

  • i need a send to one note solution from opera browser please help!

  • Still no solutions for send to onenote in opera?

  • I am trying to use Onenote but am finding the tagging function to be very cumbersome. Is there any way to have it automatically tag notes based on pre-defined keywords in the note? Something like taglocity does for Outlook?

  • Every time I try to use your send to Onenote 2007 Power toy to send text files to Onenote I get this error message "You cannot import a folder into Onenote, I'm using Win.Vista Home & Student On a new PC. Thank you for your time.

  • Unfortunately this doesn't seem to work if you have the Office 2010 Technical Preview installed.  I just installed this Powertoy and it keeps opening OneNote 2010 and creating a blank page there.


  • Does anybody know about OneNote 2007 support in Opera?

  • Hi, thank you for this power toy. I'm using W7 and office 2007 but outlook is not set up. Therefore the send to button is not available in the shortcut. I've installed your power toy but it's not showing in the shortcut menu as there is no send to group.

    Is it possible to activate the send to without outlook so that only onenote shows up for the moment.

  • Is there any way to modify the send to OneNote button to allow you to choose the notebook??
