Windows has announced another update to OneNote for the Windows store that will now allow users to sign in to their Office 365 account, making it easier for them to access the notes they have taken. Users can simply tap the “Updates” section at the top right of the Windows 8 Store, or they can download it here.
Office 365 enables users to store their work notes in the cloud. Thanks to this update, users can now sign in through work or school accounts and have access to all the notebooks they have recently opened
The update comes on the heels of Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference where CEO Steve Ballmer outlined the company’s change in direction from being primarily a software company to a devices and services company. In keeping with this recalibration, he emphasized the importance of cloud technology as one of the most significant areas of growth.
The update to OneNote also allows users to pull up or dismiss the on-screen keyboard with just a tap: tapping into a text box brings up the keyboard, and tapping any empty space outside it makes the keyboard disappear.
Microsoft has been busy revamping its Windows 8 operating system based on user feedback. It unveiled 8.1 at its annual BUILD conference last month featuring some major updates to the system.
