Microsoft OneNote 2010 : Adjusting OneNote Performance Settings

11/22/2011 3:29:04 PM
Though mostly self-explanatory, I do want to include the following pointers to some of OneNote’s performance tweaks that you might find useful.

Modifying the Default Location of New Notebooks

Typically, new notebooks that you create on your hard drive are stored in the OneNote Notebooks folder in your Documents (or My Documents) folder.

If you want all future new notebooks to be created in a different location, you can tell OneNote your preferred new default location by doing the following:

1.
Click the File tab and then click Options.

2.
In the OneNote Options dialog box, click the Save & Backup category on the left side.

3.
On the right side, under the Save heading, click the Default Notebook Location path in the list, and then click Modify.

4.
Navigate to the new location where you want notebooks to be created and then click Select.

5.
In the list, verify that the new file path now shows up next to Default Notebook Location.


Modifying the Location of Unfiled Notes

If you want to change the default location of your Unfiled Notes section, do the following:

1.
Click the File tab and then click Options.

2.
In the OneNote Options dialog box, click the Save & Backup category on the left side.

3.
On the right side, under the Save heading, click the Unfiled Notes Section path in the list and then click Modify.

4.
Navigate to the new location where you want your Unfiled Notes to be stored from now on and then click Select.

5.
In the list, verify that the new file path now shows up next to Unfiled Notes Section.


Modifying the Location of Your Backups

If you want to change the default location of automatic backups that OneNote creates for you (or the default location of any manual backups that you create), do the following:

1.
Click the File tab and then click Options.

2.
In the OneNote Options dialog box, click the Save & Backup category on the left side.

3.
On the right side, under the Save heading, click the Backup Folder path in the list and then click Modify.

4.
Navigate to the new location where you want your OneNote backups to be stored and then click Select.

5.
In the list, verify that the new file path now shows up next to Backup Folder.


Modifying the Default Locations of Notes, Outlook Items, and Screen Clippings Sent to OneNote

If you frequently use any of the Send to OneNote commands that may appear in other programs that you have installed, you can more specifically control where such items should automatically be filed by doing the following:

1.
Click the File tab and then click Options.

2.
In the OneNote Options dialog box, click the Send to OneNote category on the left side.

3.
On the right side, for any of the items you see listed, click the drop-down arrow next to the items whose default location you want to change, and then make a selection from the available options.

4.
Click OK to save your changes.

You might need to restart OneNote for these settings to take effect.



Changing Office Language Preferences

Microsoft Office 2010 is available in over 30 world languages. In addition to your native language for which you have configured Windows and Office, you can purchase and install optional language packs that provide additional proofing tools and spelling capabilities in your copy of OneNote or Office.

To install, verify, and troubleshoot such optional language packs after you have purchased them, do the following:

1.
Click the File tab and then click Options.

2.
In the OneNote Options dialog box, click the Language category on the left side.

3.
On the right side, choose the appropriate settings for your editing languages and for your display and Help languages for OneNote or for Office.

4.
If you need assistance with these features, click the Help links provided on this screen or visit www.office.com and search the Microsoft Office website for information about language packs.

5.
If you make changes on this screen, click OK to save them.


Optimizing OneNote for Laptop Battery Life

OneNote typically decides automatically how often to run a variety of housekeeping activities in the background while you take notes, such as search and audio indexing, text and handwriting recognition, and notebook synchronization.

If you’re using OneNote on a laptop with a short battery charge, you can tell OneNote to minimize such activities to extend your battery life by a bit.

To optimize OneNote for laptop battery life, do the following:

1.
Click the File tab and then click Options.

2.
In the OneNote Options dialog box, click the Advanced category on the left side.

3.
On the right side, scroll down to the Battery Options heading and then choose the option you want from the Optimize for the Following Battery Life drop-down list.

4.
Click OK to save your changes.

It’s impossible to accurately predict how much battery life you will save by setting this option to any of the battery-saving options. It depends on the size of your notebook, the types of notes you’ve written, how often you navigate through your notebook, the speed of your computer, the type of hard drive in use, and the capabilities and age of your battery. If you want to determine how dramatically these settings may or may not affect your specific computer, keep track of the time it takes to fully discharge your battery on the two configuration settings most opposite to one another and then compare the results.
