OneNote 2016
Access your notes anywhere
What good are notes, plans, and ideas if they’re trapped on a hard drive? Keep your
notebooks available to you by signing in with your free Microsoft account when
you rst start OneNote on your PC. There’s even a free OneNote app for all of your
preferred devices to stay in sync wherever you go.
Never run out of paper
OneNote doesn’t have any of the limitations of a traditional paper notebook. When
you run out of room, you can just make more.
To create a new page in the current section, click the (+) Add Page button at the
top of the page tabs column. You can also right-click any page tab and then click
New Page, or press Ctrl+N on your keyboard.
To create a new section in the current notebook, click the small tab with the plus
sign [+] to the right of the section tab bar, or right-click any section tab and then
click New Section.
When you rst launch OneNote, a default notebook with a Quick Notes section is
created for you, but you can easily create any number of additional notebooks for
the subjects and projects you want by clicking File > New.
You can create new notebooks on your local hard drive, or you can store them on
your free OneDrive account so your notes are always accessible on all your devices.
The choice is yours!
Don’t worry about saving
OneNote automatically saves all of your changes as you work — so you never have
to. Even when you close the app or your PC goes to sleep, your notes are always
saved, so you can continue right where you left off. To see when OneNote last
synced your changes, click File > Info > View Sync Status.
OneNote 2016
Tag important notes
The Tags gallery on the Home tab lets you visually prioritize or categorize selected
notes. Tagged notes are marked with icons that prompt you to follow up on your
important action items or to check off completed tasks on your to-do lists.
Organize information in tables
Whenever a spreadsheet is overkill, use simple OneNote tables to make sense of
information. Start on a new line of text by typing a word, phrase, or number, and
then press the Tab key to create the next column. Press Enter to create a new row.
Alternately, you can click Insert > Table on the ribbon to draw a table.
Once your table is created and selected, use the commands on the Table Tools tab
on the ribbon, or right-click any part of your table for the same Table options.
Copy text from pictures
OneNote can recognize text in pictures. On any page, insert a picture containing
legible text (for example, a cell phone photo of a receipt), right-click the picture,
click Copy Text from Picture, and then paste the copied text where you want it.
Create wiki-style hyperlinks
Turn your notebook into a functional wiki by creating links to specic sections or
pages. Right-click the tab of the section or page that the link should point to. Next,
click Copy Link to Section or Copy Link to Page, and then paste the link wherever
you want it.

OneNote features, commands, and tasks.
Share notes with other people

invite other people to view or edit information in the current notebook. To begin
collaborating with others, click File > Share, and then choose what you want to do.
