OneNote adds new features for Windows 8
Office has not yet found its way to the Windows 8 Start screen, but Microsoft did at least give a bit of a preview when a Modern UI version of OneNote was released. While no promises can yet be made about what is to follow, the software maker now rolls out a significant update to the lone app.
The OneNote team proclaims "today we're releasing another update to OneNote for the Windows Store that adds two things. First, you can now sign in with your Office 365 account so that you can easily open your work notes. Second, we've made it easier to dismiss the keyboard on your touch device".
With the update, now you can just sign in with your Office 365 login and see all the notebooks you've used recently. To do this, simply click or tap "More Notebooks", then select the plus button that says 'Add a work or school account to see more notebooks'. Now you can sign in and you are done.
The new update also allows customers to dismiss the on-screen keyboard. For this, you can just tap in an empty space, and the keyboard will disappear.
If you already have OneNote for Windows 8 installed then it is a simple update from the Store. If not, then You can download it here. Perhaps eventually Microsoft will see fit to add the other members of the suite to the Start screen.
