Backup Old Notes Of OneNote Or Import Them Later On In Another OneNote Installation

There may be a time which comes when you know you would need to format your computer and install windows on it again, at such times the most important thing you will think is about saving your documents and files, and if you happen to be a Microsoft OneNote user you will worry about how to save to notes you have created using OneNote.


Microsoft Office OneNote 2007 automatically creates backup copies of your notes. Only sections that have changed since the last backup are backed up again. You can change how many backup copies are kept, how often they are created, and where they are stored. You can also manually back up your notes at any time and use backup files to restore your notes.

By default, OneNote backup files are stored on your computer on the same hard disk drive as the original notebook files. If you routinely work with important or mission-critical information, it’s a good idea to change the location of your backup files to a separate hard disk drive or to a private folder on a network.

How To Backup Created Notes Of OneNote

Storing notebook backups on the same hard disk drive as your original notebook files helps protect your notes from being accidentally changed, corrupted, or deleted while you work. It also makes restoration of notes quick and easy. To further protect important notes, however, change the default location of your OneNote Backup folder. Suitable backup locations include a folder on a separate hard disk drive, a removable hard disk drive, or a private folder on your network.

Depending on your computer’s operating system, backups of your notebook files are stored in one of the following default locations:

  • On Microsoft Windows XP, the Backup folder for your notebooks is located at C:\Documents and Settings\user name\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\OneNote\Backup.
  • On Windows Vista, the Backup folder for your notebooks is located at C:\Users\user name\AppData\Microsoft\OneNote\12.0\Backup.

How To Import Backup Notes In OneNote

For each section that you restore, OneNote creates a new section in your current notebook with the name Section Name (On Date), where Section Name is the name of the original section and Date is the date the section was last saved.

  1. On the File menu, click Open Backup.
  2. In the Open Backup dialog box, in the Backup folder, double-click the notebook folder that contains the file or files that you want to restore.
  3. Select one or more backup files to restore, and then click Open.

TIP   To select more than one file at a time, hold down CTRL and click each file that you want.

Add Closed Captions, Subtitle On Video In PowerPoint Presentation For People With Hearing Disabilities [STAMP Add In]

If you know a person with hearing, sight, or reading disabilities you would know what we are talking about, STAMP (the Subtitling Text Add-in for Microsoft PowerPoint 2010) is a new, free public beta plugin for office powerpoint that increases the accessibility of your presentations by adding closed captions to video and audio files. STAMP lets you create captions within PowerPoint or import existing industry standard Timed Text Mark-up Language (TTML) files.

STAMP helps Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 users to quickly and easily add closed captions to any video and audio files included in their presentations, either by creating the captions within PowerPoint or by importing an existing industry-standard Timed Text Mark-up Language (TTML) file. If you don’t have access to an existing TTML file but still need to create captions (or adjust imported captions), you can use the simple caption editor STAMP provides.

With STAMP you can also subtitle videos or audio files in another language, for example, for a training program. Our own Office Training team is using STAMP to subtitle our training videos for audiences around the world, and to help our subsidiaries localize those videos into many different languages.


The Subtitling text add-in for Microsoft PowerPoint lets you add closed captions to the video and audio files you include in your presentations. If you work with captioned video and audio files that already have Timed Text Markup (TTML) files associated with them, this add-in lets you import them directly into your presentation. If you don’t have a TTML file, you can add captions directly in your presentation.

The STAMP add-in allows you to do the following:

  • Import captions from a Timed Text Markup (TTML) file to create captions against an audio or video in the presentation.
  • Create and edit closed captions in PowerPoint 2010.
  • Delete your closed captions.
  • Turn captions on and off when in presentation mode. Viewers who have this add-in installed can do this also.
  • Use a video/audio playback while editing Timed Text captions.
  • Align captions when they have moved, or if you re-size the video.
  • Import communicative text formatting information from the TTML file, for example: styling, color and alignment.

Search MS Office Functions & Features Hidden In Ribbon [For MS Office 2007 & 2010]

At the same time, users came up with the difficulty that they are not able to find certain options required. And now we have MS Office 2010 also with the ribbon feature.

Microsoft Stopped Pushing Genuine Office Checking Tool In Updates

After long time I am here with a news from Microsoft and that is even not published by Microsoft this one has been discovered by some of the users who keep their eye on the products of Microsoft. In this post I will be telling you about the new status update of the application which checks whether the Microsoft Office is genuine or not. Let’s have look at this new change.


I think that Microsoft has finally got fed up of checking the pirated softwares which people keep on using on their Windows OS. They have been consistently checking on Windows OS and the Microsoft Office 2010 which are mostly used by the users these days but recently it has been observed that Microsoft has stopped checking whether Microsoft Office 2010 is Genuine or not. This simply means that now Microsoft allows you to download any copy of Microsoft Office 2010 whether it is Genuine or not.

But still this does not mean that the installation pack will not contain that 25-Letter key, they will have it but then when you are about to download any template for the Microsoft Office then you will not have to pass through any genuine check this time. They have silently shut down this Genuine Office Advanced Program, now it really hard to conclude or predict that why they did so. They have actually allowed the user to use the cracked or the pirated version of this tool, which is one of the most popular tool developed by Microsoft. They have been known for their OS Windows and Office, it may be also thought that they will be coming up with a great idea with their next release of this tool which may take care of this product’s reputation.

We will keep you updated with any new changes found related to this news topic or any other topic which is related to it and anyhow if you get to know anything related to the news topics mentioned above then please do not hesitate to share it with us, just put it down in the comments section and if we found it genuine then we will be sharing that piece of information with all the other readers on your behalf, so keep searching something useful and then let us know about it. Till then keep reading, take care of yourself and have a nice day!!!
