It's possible to modify Windows 10's Action Center Note button to open other apps. In this guide, we show you how.
On Windows 10, Action Center includes Quick actions, a collection of buttons for rapid access to common settings and features. One of these buttons is "Note," which opens the mobile version of OneNote to quickly start taking notes.
The only caveat is that you're stuck with the most limited version of OneNote, because Windows 10 doesn't offer an option to change its action to open the desktop version of OneNote 2016, or any other note-taking app. However, it's possible to edit a Registry string to customize the Note button to open virtually any note-taking app you want, including OneNote 2016, OneNote on the web, Google Keep, Microsoft To-Do, and Wunderlist.
In this Windows 10 guide, we'll walk you through the steps to customize the Note button in Action Center to open another note-taking application.
