How to Embed a Pinterest Pin in OneNote or Word
When you’re browsing Pinterest and see a pin that you want to save in OneNote or Word, copy the URL from the address bar of your web browser. You can do this easily by selecting the link, right-clicking, and selecting “Copy” from the shortcut menu.
Locate the spot in OneNote or your online Word document where you want to paste the link. Right-click and select “Paste” from the menu.
As soon as you paste the Pinterest link into OneNote or Word, it will immediately transform into a content box with a thumbnail taken from the Pinterest pin.
If you click the pin, you’ll head directly to it on the Pinterest website in your default browser.
Move, Resize, or Remove the Pinterest Pin
Once you see the Pinterest pin thumbnail in OneNote or Word, you can move, resize, or even remove it.
To move the pin, click once to select its content box. Place your cursor on the dots within the top border of the box. When your cursor changes to a four-sided arrow, drag to put the pin where you’d like it on the page.
To resize the pin, select the container, and you’ll see two arrows on the top-right corner of the box. Drag the arrows right or left to resize the pin.
To remove the pin, right-click its container and select “Delete” from the shortcut menu. You can also use the application menu, keyboard shortcut, or Delete key.
And that’s it! Very easy. Paste as many Pinterest links as you’d like, then embed videos, photos, or documents, and you’ll build a handy OneNote notebook in no time.
