OneNote for Windows 10 has been designed to feel natural with any typing method, from mouse and keyboard to stylus and touch, and it contains many improvements under the hood for better performance, reliability and battery life. It also includes a number of new features not available in OneNote 2016, including ink effects * and significantly improved text ink (check it out, it will even retain the color, size, and highlights of your ink !), Researcher *, a notification center, deep integration with Windows 10, and much more.

The most requested features soon on OneNote for Windows 10

Here's what you can expect later this summer:

  • Insert and search for tags: the OneNote 2016 popular tags feature arrives on OneNote for Windows 10! Soon, you'll be able to insert, create, and search for custom tags, allowing you to easily tag key information and find it later. The tags you create will now accompany you on your devices, and OneNote will even show you tags that others have used in a shared notebook so you do not have to recreate them yourself. The new tag experience has been designed based on your feedback and will be available later this summer.


  • View and edit files - View live previews of Office files in OneNote, work together on attached documents, and save space in your notebooks with cloud files. You'll get all the benefits of saving a file on OneDrive with the context and convenience of an attachment or preview on a OneNote page.

  • Improving the user experience: Last year, we unveiled a new look for OneNote on Windows 10, Mac, iOS, Android and OneNote Online that aligned disparate designs into one unified interface. In addition to bringing consistency to our applications, the new user experience is much better for large laptops and dramatically improves accessibility for those who rely on assistive technologies.
