OneNote Clipper Gets Even Better with New UI, Location Picker, More

Today, Microsoft released a major update to its OneNote Clipper tool, bringing the web browser add-in up to version 2.0. Already adept at clipping information from the web, OneNote Clipper 2.0 features an improved user interface, a location picker, and other improvements.

If you’re not familiar with OneNote Clipper, it’s basically a browser add-in—in Internet Explorer, it’s one of those less sophisticated browser toolbar button thingamajigs—that lets you clip anything you see on the web—articles, images, whatever—and save them to your OneNote notebook in the cloud. That way, your clippings will be available on any device on which you use OneNote.

OneNote Clipper was already really useful, but in 2.0 guise it picks up some nice new features. These include:

An improved user interface. Now, OneNote Clipper appears in a visually elegant pop-up window in the upper-right of the browser window.

Location picker. Answer the most popular user request, OneNote Clipper now lets you choose a location in your OneNote notebooks each time you save a clipping. Just click the Location drop-down and choose from the available notebooks and sections. The location picker remembers the location you previously chose, and presents shared notebooks too.

Clip articles, recipes and products with no clutter. OneNote Clipper now specifically supports clipping articles, recipes and products. And when you do so, you get that content without any of the surrounding clutter on the page. And you even get a nice preview.

Region clipping. If you’re using the Chrome add-in version of OneNote Clipper, you also get region clipping so you can clip just the part of the page you want, as a screenshot.

I love this utility. And now it’s even better. You can grab OneNote Clipper on the OneNote web site.
