To get started with OneNote on your Surface Go, follow these steps:
- Open the Start menu and type “OneNote” into the search box.
- Select the “OneNote” app from the search results.
- If prompted, sign in with your Microsoft account (this is the same account you use for Outlook, OneDrive, Office 365, etc.).
- Once signed in, you’ll be taken to your OneNote notebook. By default, this will be called “Personal (Web).”

Taking notes with the Surface Pen
One of the best features of the Surface Pen is its ability to take notes directly on the screen of your Surface device. The pen is pressure-sensitive, so you can vary the width of your lines depending on how hard you press on the screen. And because the pen uses digital ink, you can erase your mistakes and start again with a clean slate.
To get started, open the Notes app and sign in with your Microsoft account. Then, choose a notebook to store your notes in, and start writing. Your notes will be saved automatically, so you can pick up where you left off even if you close the app or restart your Surface.
If you need more space to write, you can choose to have each page be landscape-oriented instead of portrait. Just tap the Page Orientation button at the top of the screen and select Landscape. You can also add hand-drawn diagrams or images to your notes by tapping the Draw button and selecting a tool from the toolbar that appears.
When you’re finished with your notes, tapthe Share button at the top of the screen to share them via email, OneNote, or another app. You can also tap Export to save your notes as a PDF file.
Taking notes with the Surface Keyboard
There are several different ways that you can take notes with the Surface Go. The most popular method is to use the on-screen keyboard, which allows you to type directly onto the screen. However, you can also use an external keyboard, such as the Surface Keyboard, to take notes.
Here are some tips for taking notes with the Surface Keyboard:
- Press the Fn key to enter Note Taking mode. This will bring up a special on-screen keyboard with extra keys for taking notes.
- Use the arrow keys to navigation around your document or slide deck.
- Use the Tab key to indent your notes, or use Shift+Tab to outdent them.
- To create a bullet point, press Alt+Shift+O. To create a numbered list, press Alt+Shift+N.
- To insert a symbol or special character, press Alt+Shift+S. This will bring up a menu of options.
- To undo your last action, press Ctrl+Z. To redo it, press Ctrl+Y.
Using the Surface Go for Note Taking
The Surface Go is a great device for note taking. It has a sleek and lightweight design, a high-resolution display, and a fast processor. It also comes with a digital pen, so you can take notes directly on the screen.
Taking notes in class
The Microsoft Surface Go is a great device for taking notes in class. The tablet has a built-in kickstand that props it up at an angle, making it easy to see and write on the screen. The touchscreen display is also receptive to digital pens, so you can take advantage of the Surface Pen for taking notes directly on the screen.
If you’re looking for a more traditional note-taking experience, the Surface Go also comes with a full-sized USB port that you can use to connect a external keyboard and mouse. This way, you can take notes on the tablet using a physical keyboard and mouse, or even connect an external hard drive or other peripheral devices.
Taking notes in meetings
If you’re in a meeting, you can use the Surface Go to take notes. Just open the OneNote app and create a new notebook for the meeting. You can use the digital pen to handwrite your notes, or you can type them. You can also add audio recordings of the meeting to your notes. To do this, just tap the Record button in the OneNote app. When you’re done recording, tap Stop. Your audio recording will be saved along with your other notes.
Taking notes during lectures
If you’re someone who likes to take handwritten notes during lectures, the Surface Go is a great device to consider. The Go comes with a digital pen, which allows you to write directly on the screen. This can be a more efficient way of taking notes, as you can quickly jot down ideas without having to fumble for a pen and paper.
There are several note-taking apps available for the Surface Go, so you can choose the one that best suits your needs. One popular option is Microsoft OneNote, which allows you to organize your notes into different categories and even share them with others. You can also use the Surface Go’s built-in handwriting recognition feature to convert your handwritten notes into text that can be easily searched through later.
If you find that you prefer taking traditional paper notes, don’t worry – the Surface Go still has you covered. With its built-in kickstand and optional Type Cover keyboard (sold separately), the Surface Go can easily be transformed into a mini laptop for taking notes or typing up papers.
