In a meeting last night a topic security/Microsoft came up and wanted to pass it to EE for their insight.  A colleague said that he doesn't like using OneNote for writing down sensitive stuff like strategy, emails/passwords used, medical info, etc., because Microsoft, even though one can place a password in OneNote pages, they go over the OneNote contents for analysis,  etc. purposes.  We at our end don't really believe that.  Some years back we had a security/OneNote question and EE assisted in how-to identify OneNote is secure using, if  not  mistaken, SSL.

What's EE expert option  on the subject? And should we continue using OneNote for all our info, sensitive and not so sensitive?

I have an issue with the preinstalled version of OneNote in windows 10.
I have students that are meant to be using onenote on their windows 10 computers but every time they open their notebooks it opens in the preinstalled windows 10 version of one note and not onenote 2016.

If I try to change the Default for .one files to use 2016 using settings->systems->defult apps->choose default apps by file type It won't change. Either office 2016 is not displayed or if it is displayed and I click on it nothing changes.

So I wrote a power shell script to try and remove onenote (Get-AppxPackage *OneNote* | Remove-AppxPackage) which worked on the machines I tested it on as well as a few of the student's computers however it did not work on a majority of the student's computers.

I've been searching the internet for a few weeks but still can not find an answer to this problem other then what I have already tried so I am now asking for help to my problem.

I don't really use OneNote much and don't really like it. However, my office uses it so I am stuck with it. I have two Excel workbooks: one gets its data from the other. They are linked and it works just fine wherever they are stored because the links usually update (sometimes I update them myself). The formulas in the one workbook are primarily Vlookups to the second workbook (which is a purchase order type sheet). I noticed that when I put them in OneNote they do not work any longer because OneNote automatically creates a "copy" of it, basically treating the Excel file like a template. So if the workbooks was TestTina, it would open as TestTina1 and then TestTina2, etc. each time I open it. So, of course the links do not work because it cannot find that workbook to link to because it is renamed. Any solutions? Thanks,

Tina

Is there anything out there to create digital notebooks in Excel or Access for example instead of Onenote?

Microsoft OneNote Hyperlinks

We have users that use OneNote, they create Hyperlinks that point to files on the file server.

the issue is:
If for instance I create the hyperlink and browse to the file I want to link, then after creating the Hyperlink, I can click on it, then it will open up the file (word,excel,etc...) with no problem.

However, If Another user will try to open the hyperlink I created they get error "Unexpected error has occured"

the same way, if they create a hyperlink , to the same file that I was able to open from my Hyperlink, then I click on their Hyperlink, I get the same error they got.

Any Help will be very much appreciated.

Thank you

I have multiple users receiving the same error message when attempting to access or update a shared note file.  The note file is located on a shared network drive which they all have access to.  Currently in our environment, we have Win7 clients 64 bit using Office 2010 and Win 8.1, 64 bit using Office 2013.  My users have been using these shared notes for an extended period now, the problem really started about 2 weeks ago.  Has anyone else seen this happen in their environment when shared OneNote files starts giving error messages that they are now corrupted and need repairing.  I have attached a copy of the error message along with the error code.  Just as an FYI, my environment will be migrating to Win10 , Office 2016 within the next 30 days.  Looking forward to any and all recommendations.


Current error code is 0xE000013COneNote Error Message

I get a message on the surface pro that OneNote might not sync correctly while offline files are enabled, is there a way we can continue to have offline files enabled and continue syncing OneNote correctly?

Thank you in advance!

We have OneNote 2016 that comes with MsOffice.  We want to print a note that have hyperlinks to PDF format but preserve the links.  At this point we can print to PDF but we loose the links (the links are just blue no 'click & open' on the link).  Note we are referring to links that goes to external web pages not the paragraph within the OnoNote page.

How can we make OneNote to re-size to fit the android phone screen size? (we "pinch" the screen but it goes only so far, not complete).  Note, in Iphone we can "pinch" the OneNote screen and reduce the OneNote to fit the screen.  It seems an Android problem.

Please advice,

I have this older XP machine with Microsoft OneNote 2010, and a notebook synchronized with OneDrive.

It worked fine for years, but since a week or two ago if I go to File > Open in OneNote I get "Unable to connect to Microsoft OneDrive".

The notebook's sync info gives error 0x80072EFF which means cannot connect. However I can open the notebook on OneDrive in the browser no problem. I tried closing the notebook and go to OneDrive to "edit in OneNote", but it works only to the point where OneNote opens and gives error "cannot open the specified location".

Googling for the issue I suspect OneDrive may not support anymore TLS 1.0 which is the only one I see in my Internet Options... but maybe experts you know what to do about it, thanks.

I am looking for a tool that I can use to:

1. Take notes at meetings
2. Use as a Task Manager
3. Take general notes for work tasks, e.g new projects

We have OneNote 2010 at work. Can anyone recommend any tips on how to use this tool effectively, esp the management of pages vs sections etc?

Also, what benefits does OneNote have with other MS tools like SharePoint and Outlook?

Hi, for some strange reason we just can't seem to locate an actual Microsoft download of OneNote 2016 (or latest version) of the software.  All links we found are from other website not from Microsoft.  Our free version was download previously from Microsoft site but we can't seem to locate it.  Please provide the download link.

Thanx you.

I am using a Surface 3 machine with Windows 10.

When I attempt to sign into Onenote I get the following error:

We can't sign you in

Your browser is currently set to block cookies. You need to allow cookies to use this service.

Cookies are small text files stored on your computer that tell us when you're signed in. To learn how to allow cookies, check the online help in your web browser.


I checked Edge... it is set to "Don't block cookies".  IE 11 is set the same.

If I search "http:\\" I see the Edge icon... thus I believe that Edge is the default browser.

Thoughts?

Hello,

Is there a known AHK bug in Microsoft OneNote?

I've never been able to get Send {Down} or Send {Up} to execute in OneNote (2013) and now I've noticed that I also cannot get a Right-Click:

F1::Send {Right}
F2::Send {Left}
F3::Click
F4::MouseClick, Left
F5::Send {Down}
F6::Send {Up}
F7::Click Right
F8::MouseClick, Right

Open in new window


As expected, all of the above commands execute just fine in any other app. In OneNote however, only F1 thru F4 execute; F5 thru F8 do nothing.

Could someone who uses both programs test the above script? That would quickly indicate whether the problem lies with one or both apps vs with my system.

I anticipate that the problem is with my system. However, I did find a post from another user in the AHK Forum who described a similar problem (https://autohotkey.com/boards/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=25925&p=122104&hilit=ahk+onenote#p122104).

If the problem is with my system, what could be causing that behavior? On the other hand, if others find the same problem, can anyone think of a workaround?

Thanks

Hello,

I inadvertently deleted an extremely important hyperlink destination in OneNote (2013) and I am hoping beyond all hope that it can be recovered. I have copies of the hyperlink throughout all my Notebooks and I use it so frequently that it is even included as part of the NewPage Template for most Sections (so that it is present as soon as I open a new page).

Questions:

I know that OneNote saves new content immediately but are versions from previous days stored anywhere and how does one access them?

If previous versions are not available, is there any way to modify en masse all copies of the hyperlink (probably 1000+) to a new destination?

If that is not an option, is it possible to somehow create a new hyperlink destination from the hyperlink address? In that case the address is the following ([ComputerName] & [Username] omitted for privacy):

onenote:#Home&section-id={11A1AEF7-7111-434E-9482-66D36564E905}&page-id={A9852227-957D-4972-9219-81BEF3DA66EC}&object-id={76F1EBE2-093C-4C82-BA9C-862518B5AF86}&25&base-path=[ComputerName]\Users\[Username]\Documents\OneNote%20Notebooks\2016\Main.one

And if that is not possible, do any other workarounds exist?

Thanks

We are using Office365 and would like to use it to share documents, meeting notes, calendar and tasks.  Currently we are sending out notes via email and we have a number of OneNote notebooks which are a bit awkward to share.  Part of the problem is we are new to SharePoint so are uncertain of the terms it uses. Looking for a nudge int he right direction to do the following

Create Shared SitesCreate two department sites: IT and Operations
Security: Anyone can view the sites but only IT Members can edit IT and only Operations can edit Operations.  The VP can edit both.
OneNote: Share Onenote notebook so meeting notes taken in OneNote appear in a list on Sharepoint
CalendarEach shared site should have a team calendar.  Ideally this could be accessed directly in Outlook
TasksWould be useful to generate tasks/projects from our meeting notes to create tasks and have them assigned to people and deadlines

We have SharePoint 2013 on premise. We are using Office web app in SharePoint.

When user opens OneNote document in browser, as web app, images in OneNote document are not visible. User has to click on space where image is supposed to be. Then gray rectangle appears. Bellow is print screen:
print screen of an error.
But, if I open OneNote in client, images are visible (insted of blank space or gray rectangle).

Do you have any suggestion what might be the cause for this or what should I do to enable images appearing in web app mode?

Hello everybody,
we try to use OneNote Clipper in Internet Explorer or Chrome (both actual releases) with OneNote (out of MS Office 365 E3 Ent. Plan).
As soon as we try to login at OneNote Clipper with our Business Accounts we observe failures. For example the Login Page resets (Chrome) or remains completely empty and white (IE). There is no Login possible. If we choose "Login with a Microsoft Account" and use our Business Accounts, the Account can't be found.

Is a general use of OneNote Clipper with Business Accounts possible and supported? Maybe anybody has an idea how we could get it work?

Thanks a lot and with best regards
David
