I opened a OneNote file and got
Microsoft OneNote is not currently your default program for OneNote hyperlinks. Would you like to change the current associations? Yes/No
Only if I knew what a OneNote hyperlink were!
- I have no idea what a “OneNote hyperlink” means. I do not have enough information to make a decision and the message does not link to information where I can read more and make a decision.
- The message does not explain the consequences of “changing the current association”.
In fact, it is not clear what will happen if I click Yes. I see two options: a) the associations will be silently changed and I will not be bothered and b) I will get a dialog box where I can select some associations. I never learned. I clicked No and the file that I wanted opened.
Quick and dirty: Explain what “OneNote hyperlink” is and make it clear what happens on Yes
Design for humans: Directly show the current associations, so I can see them and act on them.
