Take notes in OneNote

Type notes

  1. Select anywhere on a page and then begin typing. During your typing, a note container displays around the text, allowing you to resize or rearrange the note on the page.
  1. Keep typing inside the same note container, or press elsewhere on the page to produce a new note.


Add a page

In OneNote, you can create new pages to your notebook whenever you want. Every page can be labelled to simplify finding information in your notebook.

  1. At the bottom of the page list, click the + Page button.

Note: If you don’t see the page list, click the Show Notebooks button Show Notebooks button .

  1. After the blinking cursor emerges on the page header, enter a title or description for the new page, and then press Enter to begin taking notes on it.

Rename a page

While you edit and update notes gradually, the titles of some of your pages may become outdated since you first made them. You can quickly rename pages to effectively outline their contents.

  1. In the page list, right-click the page title you want to change, and then click Rename Page.

Note: If you don’t see the page list, press the Show Notebooks button Show Notebooks button .

  1. Enter your preferred new page title, and then press Enter.

Add a section

In OneNote, you can add new sections to your notebook whenever you want. Sections can be named to better identify the pages they contain and how they relate to a particular subject.

  1. At the bottom of the section list, press the + Section button.

Note: If you don’t see the section list, select the Show Notebooks button Show Notebooks button .

  1. Once the New Section placeholder name is highlighted, write a name or description for the new section, and then press Enter.

Each new section you form will instantly include a blank, untitled page for you to begin taking notes on.
