To link OneNote content to files already stored on your computer or network, simply select the text you want to turn into a link, use the CTRL-K keyboard shortcut to open the Link dialog box, click the file folder icon to browse for the file you want to link to (see Figure I), and click OK. The text you originally selected is now an active link that leads directly to the file on your computer or network.
Using this same concept, you could create source documents within OneNote that lead to multiple files on your computer and/or networks. For example, you could create a personal bibliography that links to individual Word documents, each representing an article you’ve previously written and published. Or perhaps you could write a Table of Contents notebook within OneNote that links to a separate Word document for each chapter of your book.
Think of the Possibilities
OneNote is capable of so many things that its possibilities are virtually endless. And because it serves as a central tool for organization and productivity on several levels, we think people working in numerous industries will find it helpful once they set it up according to their preferences and take full advantage of its features.
