OneNote is a digital note-taking app that provides a single place for keeping all of your notes, research, plans, and information — everything you need to remember and manage in your life at home, at work, or at school.

In OneNote, notebooks never run out of paper. Notes are easy to organize, print, and share, and you can search and find important information quickly, even if you forget where you've originally captured it. Best of all, your notebooks are stored online so you can easily get to them on any of your mobile devices.

Start your very own digital notebook

Take command over your next project, trip, or class. OneNote notebooks are designed to make organization optional but easy. Every notebook is automatically organized into sections which contain pages — letting you decide visually how you want to arrange your notes. Keep one section for your song writing, another one for recipes, or start jotting down plans for your next vacation or the new school year. Freely move things around whenever and however you want. Whatever you care about, OneNote makes it easy to keep tabs on everything in your life.

Type anywhere, capture anything

Experience true freedom in taking notes. In OneNote, every page is an infinite canvas. Just click and type anywhere you want. Notes are in containers that are easy to move around where you want them, letting you organize your thoughts. Tables are as easy to create as hitting the Tab key while you type. Insert pictures, attach files, or capture the sound of your own voice. And when you’re researching or writing a paper or a project plan, OneNote can help you outline, annotate, and share your ideas in any way you want.

Tag notes, make lists, recall everything

OneNote can do things your old paper notebooks can only dream about. Use tags to categorize and prioritize notes that need to stand out. Whether you’re making a simple checklist or planning a large-scale event like a wedding, you can easily mark what’s important, call out what’s still in question, and assign action items for yourself and others. Add To-Do tags to your lists with a simple click, so you can check off and track your progress, even when you switch between your devices on the go. And forget about flipping through pages trying to find something — OneNote puts all of your information at your fingertips with a quick search, no matter where you might have jotted it down.

Think, plan, and share together with others

Use OneNote just for yourself, or invite friends, family, co-workers, or classmates to collaborate with you in a shared notebook. Together, you can keep track of teamwork, homework, home projects, or family events and vacation memories. Everyone you invite can add their own text, pictures, files, and anything else in a notebook you’ve shared, no matter where in the world they are. Best of all, there’s no messing around with files and folders — OneNote makes everything work with the click of a button.

Take OneNote with you

Always stay connected to your notebooks everywhere you go — on just about any computer, phone, or mobile device. Use OneNote on your Mac or PC to do research at home, check your grocery list at the store in OneNote on your phone, or keep a travel journal in OneNote on your tablet while you go sightseeing. Even if you’re stranded somewhere, any standard Web browser will get you access to your notebooks in no time. Visit to download OneNote for all of your preferred devices.
