I think I have pointed out previously that there needs to be quite an investment of time made in OneNote, just to learn how to use the thing reasonably effectively. This video is a tutorial about one little bit - and it's Office 365 OneNote as well, which is not necessarily the same thing as the Desktop version. I've only used Desktop Office 2007, 2013 and 2016 - never used Office 365. I have used the free web-based version of OneNote, though I'm not sure whether it's the same thing as Office 365 OneNote - in fact, I suspect it isn't. Creating section groups in Office 2016 OneNote is a lot faster, though one can do it the way the video shows, if one wants.

I just came across the OneNote Tagging Kit project in Codeplex:
Here is the OneNote Tagging Kit User Guide

It seems to have been running for a couple of years, though I don't think I had come across it till today.

If anyone reading this tries it out - or has tried it out - could they post their comments here please?

I think I shall give it a trial.

Update: OK, I gave it a trial (Text in spoiler below)

SpoilerNotes on 1st installation of OneNoteTaggingKit Add-In 3.0
2017-02-21 1101hrs: Installed OK, and the TaggingKit COM Add-in came up just fine one the ribbon, but it broke quickly, as soon as I had tried to Refresh Tags in the Settings | Suggested Tags.

See error panel below:
   • Maybe the cause was there were no tags shown in the panel of suggested tags, thus nothing to refresh?
   • Clicking on OK took me to the "Known issues" on the Codeplex website, but I had already read that and knew there was no such issue recorded.

I tried restarting OneNote and removed and reinstated the TaggingKit COM Add-in via the Options panel, but the same error occurred.
At no point did OneNote crash.
I ended up by disabling and removing the TaggingKit COM Add-in via the Options panel.
Pity. Looked like it could be quite useful.  :-(

Using the embedded YouTube (and other) in situ viewing window in OneNotes seems to work flawlessly:
(The window is draggable to a larger/smaller size, but does not go "full screen".)

Problem here on Android.
If something is clipped to ON it is sent to "unfiled" tab which is fine.
But! If you have a dozen clips all sent to "unfiled" that makes a huge amount of tabs to classify.
In my situation, i would like to have just one "unfiled" tab receive all "clipped" items via Android into one single ON "unfiled" tab that could be eventually tagged. Can this be done?
