Create a new notebook in OneNote for Mac

New notebooks are created on the OneDrive account that you’re currently signed into. If you want to create a notebook on a different account, sign out of your current account, and then sign into the account you want before following these steps.

Do the following to create a new notebook:

  1. If necessary, sign into your Microsoft account or your Microsoft 365 organizational account.

  2. On the top menu bar, click File > New Notebook.

  3. Click to select a notebook color you want.

  4. In the Name box, type a name for the new notebook.

  5. In the Where box, select which online account will be used to save the notebook. A OneDrive account is required for creating a new notebook.

  6. Click Create.

If you don’t already have a Microsoft account, click here to sign up for free.
