New Quick Tab Self Generates

I noticed in Onenote there is always in a certain notebook a A new QUICK NOTE TAB gets created on it's own. I deleted it and then it regenerates itself back again . is there away to stop this from happening? Once again the odd thing it only occurs on one notebook.

Quick notes are for gathering thoughts and ideas without worrying about where they go in OneNote. I don't know any way to turn it off. However, they can be a very useful part of OneNote.

Creating quick notes is usually done by entering CTRL-SHIFT-M on your keyboard. However there are two caveats:
1) Quick notes don't seem to be supported by the Windows 10 version of OneNote
2) Chrome uses that same keyboard shortcut for popping up a quick menu

So... If you don't want the quick notes notebook to be created, use the Windows 10 version of OneNote. If you want to use it but use Chrome for your browser, you will need to change the mapping for that shortcut in Chrome.

(I know this isn't the answer you were hoping for. Sorry.)

Ok i believe and I trust you Andrew. I don't remember which Notebook that I had used first to be the default. Microsoft"wishful thinking" should allow us humans some room to change somethings to the way we like. Thank you my friend.
