1. If you are in Notes, click New Note from the Home tab.


2. Type in your text.

3. To save and close the note, click the note icon image in the upper-left corner of the note window  notes image, and then select Save & Close.

4. You can leave the note open while you work, and drag it to any location on your screen for easier viewing.

5. To read or change a note, in the Notes folder, double-click the note to open it. You can customize notes to make it easier to find and organize them.
