    OneNote as a karaoke machine: no powertoy needed!

    • 2 Comments
    I was playing around with Jeff's media tuner addin the other day and trying to align some notes I had taken a little better with the audio I had recorded. Then it hit me - OneNote is a "poor man's karaoke machine." You can take a song, drop it on a OneNote...

    • 3 Comments
    I have been very happy with my tablet once I scanned my fingerprint to "calm down" the fingerprint reader software. I happened to notice the fan on the tablet was still running more often than what I expected after making that change. I figured...

    Testing themed controls for OneNote addins

    • 2 Comments
    About a week ago, Shu updated his OneNote Favorites addin to support themed controls. In short, themed controls display in a more "modern" fashion than unthemed controls, but work the same. If you think back to Windows 95, you can see unthemed...

    Triaging our "tools" bug list

    • 0 Comments
    Last week we took a look at bugs we have opened in the "Tools" branch of our bug database. For OneNote, "tools" is a catchall for a wide range of differing areas: automation bugs, performance work needed, bugs with out test tools (which is probably the...

    OneNote infiltrates the US Treasury?

    • 1 Comments
