There’s a pen, a highlighter, an eraser, a typed note, and a clipper tool. You can choose from different colors and brush sizes. 

Use the Pen to write with your touchscreen or mouse, Highlight to point out specific text, Type to write a text note, or Clip to point out a certain area.

Saving the web page: When you are ready with the page, you can Save the note, so you can return to it at any time.  There are three options: 1) You can save it to your OneNote account, Microsoft Office’s default note-taking app; 2) You can save to your Favorites; or 3) You can save it to your or your Reading List folder.
