When you create a new OneNote 2016 notebook on OneDrive it’s in the cloud. This means you can open it from your computer, smart phone, or any web-connected device and it will always be up to date. And, if you'd like, you can share it with others.

  1. In OneNote, choose File > New.

  2. If you already see OneDrive as an option, skip to step 5.

  3. Choose Add a Place > OneDrive.

  4. Enter your OneDrive or Microsoft Account username (for example, a Hotmail, Live, or email address).

    Note: If you're creating a notebook at work, you can sign in using your organization's account and create your notebook on OneDrive for Business.

  5. Select OneDrive - Personal, give your notebook a name, and then choose Create Notebook.
