    How to Make a Web Note on webpages in Microsoft Edge in Windows 10

    information   Information
    Microsoft Edge is a new web browser that is available across the Windows 10 device family. It is designed for Windows 10 to be faster, safer, and compatible with the modern Web.

    Microsoft Edge lets you take notes, write, doodle, and highlight directly on webpages as a Web Note. Afterwards, you can save or share the Web Note.

    Starting with Windows 10 build 15007, Microsoft updated Web Notes to now leverage the familiar Windows Ink experience you’ve come to know in Photos and Maps, amongst other places. Tap the pen or highlighter in Web Notes, and you will now see the full set of Windows Ink colors, as well as the new slider released for Windows Ink with Windows 10 build 14986.

    This tutorial will show you how to make a Web Note on webpages open in Microsoft Edge to share or save in Windows 10.


    EXAMPLE: Web Note on webpage in Microsoft Edge

    Another great one Shawn. This new function will augment my use of OneNote, which you can do all these things too, but after clipping.
