The company manufactures various computer software, personal computers, consumer electronics, and services. Microsoft is one of the leading organizations offering different types of software including Windows operating system and Microsoft Office Suite. Further, not only does Microsoft office provides you with a word processing document, but also offers software products like Microsoft OneNote used by businesses and home users. This is an excellent software that allows users to share notes, screen clippings, drawings, etc. with other OneNote users.

Although, Microsoft OneNote is quite a useful software that allows you creating and sharing notes and other contents, as well as help organizing them, it may affect your PC's performance. This is because it may increase the boot time of your PC as well as use valuable resources like system memory when automatically starts on system boot up. If you find that this software runs automatically in background whenever your computer starts, you can prevent OneNote from automatically starting.
