Use different versions of OneNote on the same computer

Applies to: OneNote for Windows 10.

Sometimes, you’ll want to use both OneNote for Windows 10 and the full desktop version of OneNote 2016 on the same computer.

Once it senses several versions of OneNote, Windows may ask you to confirm which OneNote version that you prefer to use as the default app for accessing future notebooks. If you skip this message or you want to adjust your preference, you can physically edit this setting at your own convenience.

To set your default version of OneNote:

  1. Press the Windows button in the lower-left corner of your screen, and then select Settings.
  1. In Settings, pick System > Default apps > Set defaults by app.

  1. In the list below Set your default programmes, locate the OneNote version that you prefer Windows to use as the default, and then press Set this programme as default. For instance, pick OneNote (desktop) if you want to constantly acces notebooks in OneNote 2016.
  1. Press OK to save your changes.

To alter this setting whenever you want, repeat the steps in the previous list and confirm a new selection.
