Who doesn't like a good internet research project?
As fun as doing searches is, however, that's only the beginning. The next step is to collect and organize all the good stuff you've found. So whether you're looking something up online for a class or simply to satisfy your own curiosity, using the Notes function in Opera can help turn your search results into useful information.
Here's a quick guide to help you get started!
- You can either select Notes from the main Opera menu, or from the panel that shows the note as a square of paper with the corner folded over.
- To write your own note, click on Add, and just start typing. (Instant to-do list!)
- To save information from a webpage, highlight the text, right-click and select Copy to note. If the text you're copying is from a well-known site, it will be saved along with an icon of the website's logo to help you remember where it came from.
- You can also combine text from websites with your own thoughts into individual notes about different subjects. That's the beauty of Notes in Opera!
- When you're done with a Note, you can send the entire note by email or even just one part of it by right-clicking and selecting Send by Mail. Alternately, you can right-click the edit field and select Insert note to paste the highlighted text into a status update, email message, or chat window.
- Take your notes with you! If you use Opera Link, you can store the information you need right inside Opera. So for example, you can do a search on a regular computer and save the results in a note that you store inside the browser. Once you synchronize your notes with Opera Link, you can look them up later from your phone or tablet.
That's it - quick and easy!
