Introducing OneNote Clipper for Chrome and Springpad to OneNote migration tool

OneNote aims to let you view and take notes anywhere, across all your devices. Today, we’re happy to announce two new tools for Chrome and Springpad users to expand OneNote access even more.

OneNote Clipper for Chrome

A little over 60 days ago, we released the OneNote Clipper—the easiest way to save anything you see on the web to OneNote, in just one click.


Since then, the feedback has been positive:

After looking at the initial usage data, we saw that a lot of you are using the OneNote Clipper in Chrome. We also heard many of you asking for a Chrome extension for the Clipper.

Now the OneNote Clipper is available as a Chrome extension, adding an easy-to-access OneNote button to your Chrome browser that launches the Clipper.

Try OneNote Clipper for Chrome now

To get started, open your Chrome browser and visit Click the purple Install to Chrome button, then click Add. Congratulations, now you’re all set to start clipping the web to OneNote.

If you have already installed the OneNote Clipper to your bookmark bar in Chrome, you can simply remove it and install the Chrome extension if you wish. The Chrome extension has all the functionality of the bookmarklet, so you won’t miss a beat.

To clip, just browse to any webpage and click the OneNote Clipper button. For more details on the clipping experience, check out our original blog post.

Springpad to OneNote migration tool

Springpad recently announced they’re shutting down on June 25. If you’re a Springpad user looking for a new home for your notes, try the Springpad to OneNote migration tool.


Since OneNote is now free everywhere (including our new Mac app), Springpad users will have their first OneNote notebook set up automatically–no sign-up required.

To move your notes from Springpad to OneNote, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Springpad and click Export Your Data. Enter your email, then click Begin My Export. Springpad will email you a link to download your .zip export file of your Springpad data.
  2. Go to the Springpad to OneNote site, sign in with your Microsoft account, and then upload the .zip file you downloaded in Step 1.
  3. We’ll import your Springpad notes into your default OneNote notebook. Each Springpad notebook becomes a section in your OneNote notebook, and each page becomes its own page in the section.
  4. When the import is complete, we’ll send you a confirmation email, including a link to your OneNote notebook.
