You are using and loving OneNote, right? In OneNote Essentials training, we discover how this program opens up tons of possibilities for organizing thoughts, integrating Outlook items, and so much more. One feature I talk briefly about in this training, but can’t show in detail, is the nifty Add-On you can use in your browser of choice. These Add-Ons can streamline organizing information you are pulling from the web.
OneNote Browser Add-On Downloads
About half of you are using Chrome, about a quarter are using Firefox, and the other quarter one of the other browser options.
Here is the good news… Regardless of your browser of choice, the link below will detect your current browser and send you to the appropriate download. If you use multiple browser programs, you can open it in each one (Chrome, then Firefox, etc) and download the clipper for each program.
1. Select Get the OneNote Web Clipper
2. You will be redirected to the appropriate log in page with a button allowing you to add the clipper to your browser.
After the clipper is installed, it will appear:
- Chrome/Firefox/Edge: to the right of your address and search bars
- Safari: to the left of your address bar
The first time you click on the clipper, you will be prompted to log in to your OneNote account. This will give the clipper access to place your selections into your OneNote notebooks.
To log in, remember:
1. Your email is your myWSUID@wichita.edu (e.g. A123Z987@wichita.edu).
2. Password is your usual myWSUID password.
3. You will be redirected to a Shocker log in page; this will look familiar if you have taken the OneDrive training.
4. You will likely be asked to Duo, so be sure to have your device of choice at the ready to authenticate.
Once logged in, check out the clipper! You have a choice of clipping:
- Full page
And, you can select a location to place your clipping. Select the dropdown by Location to see your OneNote notebooks and folders.
What do you think? Do you think you will use the clipper?
Congratulations, Power Users!

This is awesome! Is there a way to transfer my clips from the OneNote hosted in OneDrive to the OneNote notebook I have saved to my share drive and vice versa?
Hey Quinn, that’s a good question. I only see my OneDrive hosted notebooks in the clipper, but you can open both your OneDrive and local notebooks (shared drive counts as local for these purposes) in OneNote 2016 desktop application, then move the page from the OneDrive notebook to the local notebook. You can move or copy a page or section via right click menu or by drag and drop. Hope that makes sense (hard to show without screen shots). You can give me a call or email and I can walk you through it if you’d like. 🙂
