I love Google Chrome but find it misses a few features i use a lot in IE.  In particular ‘Send to OneNote’.

If you use OneNote 2010 to take snippets from the web using this functionality you’ll know it’s a real time-saver and very handy.  Respectively, if you’ve moved to Chrome you’ll indeed miss this feature.

This Quick-Tip will show you how you can get ‘Send To OneNote’ back.

There are actually 2 easy methods to accomplish this.  Both work well but are not without their flaws. I’ll cover both methods but won’t go into their shortcomings (this is a Quick-Tip after all).

Method 1.

In Chrome, install the IE Tab extension.

You’ll notice the extension has put an IE icon next to the Omnibox.

When you have found the page you wish to send to OneNote 2010, simply click the IE icon.

You’ll know the extension has worked when you see another URL address bar and the icon in the tab changes.

Now all that’s required is to right click, select ‘Send to OneNote’ and proceed as usual.

This has only been tested on a Windows 7 x86 system running OneNote (or Office) 2010.

Method 2.

You should be able to pull this method off out-of-the-box.  If during the OneNote 2010 installation you installed the OneNote printer then all you need to do is this.

Either navigate to the page or select the content you wish to copy.  Press Ctrl+P.

The Print dialog will appear.  Make sure under Select Printer, Send To OneNote is selected.

Under Page Rage, you can specify to printout the entire page, the selection you made or multiple pages.  When you have made your choice, click Print

The familiar OneNote dialog box will appear, choose your save location and it will printout a non-editable copy to your notebook.

And that’s it.  If you have another method of doing this, drop us a comment below.

I hope this helps for those of you missing this feature from IE.
