How to access OneNote Online

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Microsoft OneNote provides various different ways you can access your notebook content. There are two desktop app options available: OneNote 2016 and OneNote for Windows 10 each with their own unique features and then there is the option to access your notebooks via OneNote Online.

OneNote Online gives you the flexibility to log in and access your content from any computer connected to the Internet. This is very useful when you are away from your computer or do not have access to your usual system. The ability to access OneNote online has saved me several times when working offsite.

Install OneNote for Windows 10

Microsoft OneNote for Windows 10 comes preinstalled with any Windows 10 computer. You can also download it via the Microsoft Store.

OneNote for Windows 10 has a sleeker appearance and does not have the familiar ribbon at the top. The section tabs appear down the left-hand pane with pages displayed parallel to them.
