New to the Microsoft Office 2010 suite of programs is Backstage View and this also applies to OneNote 2010. Backstage View replaces the old Office button, even the File menu from earlier versions of OneNote. You'll notice to the left of the Ribbon at the very top is the File tab. Click this and you're in Backstage View. Here's where you'll see a number of File commands, things you would do to a file as opposed to things you would do inside a file, like opening, creating new documents or notebooks in this case, sharing, saving, printing and so on.
You'll also be able to access information in each of these categories. For example, if you wanted to create a new notebook, you could click New and over on the right-hand side, you'll see options for creating new notebooks for the Web, over a Network or on your Computer. Here's also where you would name the notebook and choose its location to be stored. When you go to Print, you'll see all of the print options. In this case, Print and Print Preview. You can also access OneNote Options from Backstage View. Click Options and you'll see the OneNote Options dialog we saw in the previous lesson, when we were customizing the Ribbon.
Here you'll notice Customize Ribbon is available and we have all of those options for customizing our user interface that we saw in the previous lesson. So, for example, if you wanted to remove a Custom tab, you simply select it, click the Remove button and it's gone. Click OK to save those changes and this also closes up the OneNote Options and takes you out of Backstage View. So remember, there's no more Office button if you're accustomed to using the 2007 suite of applications for Microsoft. There's no more File menu but by clicking the File tab, you can access the new Backstage View.
