1. OneNote basics

How are OneNote pages different?

This is an example of a normal page of notes. You can type anywhere — just click and type. For example, type your name here. Then try moving it around.


What are all the tabs?

OneNote is a place for gathering, organizing, searching, and sharing notes, clippings, thoughts, reference materials, and other information. All your notes will be visible here — organized by notebooks, sections, and pages. You can create them by clicking File > New.


Start with one or two.

Sections in the current notebook:

Sections let you organize notes by activities, topics, or people in your life. Start with a few in each notebook.

Pages in the current section:

Create as many note pages in each section as you want.

Special Unfiled Notes section — for note pages you need to create in a hurry. You can drag them elsewhere later.


There is no Save button on the toolbar because OneNote saves all your notes automatically!
