Create links to notebooks, sections, pages, and paragraphs in OneNote for Windows 10

Applies to: OneNote for Windows 10.

It’s easy to create and share links to specific parts of your notes — either to the entire notebook, to particular sections or pages, or to a specific paragraph on a page. Such links can be useful whenever you want others to find related notes quickly, or when you want to create an interactive table of contents that others can use to navigate your notebook more easily.

You can also add the link to an Office document or to an Outlook email so that you can share the contents of your notebook.

Copy and paste a link to a notebook

  1. Right-click the notebook name that the link should point to.
  1. On the shortcut menu, press Copy Link to Notebook. The link to the chosen notebook and the notebook label are duplicated to the Clipboard.
  1. Right-click the desired area on the page that will include the link, and on the shortcut menu, select Paste. OneNote adds a link that, when chosen, reveals the target notebook.

Tip: To swiftly return to the past page after you click a link, tap Back in the top left corner of your OneNote window.

Copy and paste a link to a section

  1. Right-click the tab of the section that the link should point to.
  1. On the shortcut menu, click Copy Link to Section. The link to the selected section and the section title are copied to the Clipboard.
  1. Choose the location on the page that will hold the link.
  1. Right-click the page location that will occupy the link, and on the shortcut menu, click Paste. OneNote creates a link that, when clicked, presents the target section.

Copy and paste a link to a page

  1. In the page list, right-click the page tab that the link should be facing.
  1. On the shortcut menu, select Copy Link to Page. The link to the chosen page and the page title are transferred to the Clipboard.
  1. Right-click the page location intended to enclose the link, and on the shortcut menu, click Paste. OneNote appends a link that, when clicked, shows the target page.

Tip: To quickly return to the last page after you click a link, press Back in the top left corner of your OneNote window.

Copy and paste a link to a paragraph

  1. Direct your cursor to the left edge of the paragraph you want to link.
  1. Right-click the four-headed arrow beside the paragraph the link should link to.
  1. On the shortcut menu, select Copy Link to Paragraph. The link to the specified paragraph and the paragraph text are duplicated to the Clipboard.
  1. Click the location on the page that is to contain the link.
  1. Right-click the page area that will include the link, and on the shortcut menu, pick Paste. OneNote attaches a link that, when clicked, reveals the target paragraph.

Copy and paste a link to a document or e-mail

You can paste a link to a OneNote notebook, section, page, or paragraph so that it appears in an Office document or email.

  1. Point your cursor to the left edge of the notebook, section, page, or paragraph you want to link.
  1. On the shortcut menu, pick Copy Link. The Copy Link command will change depending on what you’re copying. The link is copied to the Clipboard.
  1. In the Office document or email, click the location where you want the link.
  1. Right-click the same location, and on the shortcut menu, press Paste > Keep Source Formatting. OneNote inserts a link that, when clicked, opens the OneNote notebook, section, page, or paragraph. The link will contain both a link to the notebook for users with OneNote installed, and link to a web view that launches the notebook in OneNote for the web.
