    You can keep Microsoft OneNote open on the side of your screen at all times to reference your notes or make new ones. It doesn't matter if you have Internet Explorer open, Microsoft Word, Excel or Powerpoint, etc. your Notebook will be available to you. If someone else in your network makes changes to the notebook those changes will be highlighted so when you look at the Notebook you will know what changes were made.
