How to Work with Web Note in Microsoft Edge

By Woody Leonhard

Unique among web browsers, Edge, the browser shipped with Windows 10, has a web page mark-up capability that ties into OneNote, allowing you to make your own annotations on a suitably equipped tablet or touch-sensitive screen.

Here’s how to make (and view!) your own Web Note:

  1. In Edge, navigate to a site you’d like to deface. Er, mark up.

    You can navigate to AskWoody.com, and feel free to deface it.

  2. Click the icon in the upper-right corner that looks like a sheet of paper with a pen.

    The web page is turned into a OneNote-like drawing page, and you’re given a variety of markup/inking tools to draw on it. See the following image.

    Ink your own comments.

    Ink your own comments.
  3. In the upper-right corner, click or tap the Save icon to save the WebNote to your reading list.

    Or you can save it in OneNote.
