OneNote 2010 simplifies the navigation of notebooks containing a large number of sections and pages. Let's investigate this using our Conference notebook here. You'll notice we are in the Weekly Meeting section. And over on the right-hand side we've got several pages that appear in this section. One thing that's been improved is the ability to create a new section. It's much easier now. thanks to this new tab. And when we click this button, we instantly have a new section and you'll notice that the New Section is highlighted, so we can type in a new name.
So let's type in To Do List for example. When you press Enter or Return, you've created your new section and you're ready to start creating notes on your very first page. Let's go back to Weekly Meetings. Another enhancement makes it easier to insert new pages anywhere in your page tab. Say up here over here on the right-hand side. And you'll notice that when you hover over the Page tabs an icon appears just to the left. And when you move to that, you'll see a dividing line appear in between the tabs where your mouse is.
And this is about to create a new page. So, for examples, if you want to create a new page just above our first page we move up there and you see the dividing line, click the New Page icon, and you've got your new page. Let's call this one September Meetings. And we will do the same for October and November. So we will move to October 6, move over to our New Page icon, click, and type October Meetings. And this is a great way to stay organized because we are going to create sub-pages for each of the months.
Do the same for November. So now it's just a matter of creating sub-pages out of the actual meeting pages. You can do that by selecting them. We'll click the first of September Meeting for September 2nd. Clicking that page tab takes us to that page. We will move down to the last September meeting for the 29th, hold down the Shift key and click it to select all of them. And you can see they are all highlighted or selected here. So all we have to do is move our mouse over any one of the selected page tabs, right-click and choose to create sub- pages from them by clicking Make Subpage.
Now they are sub-pages of the September Meetings page tab. So we can do the same now for our October Meetings. Select the first one for October 6the. Hold down Shift. Once they are all selected, right- click, and choose to Make Subpages. And we only have one for November, but we can do it. I'll just first select it, then right- click, and we will choose Make Subpage. So now you can see all of the pages and you can imagine that when they start to pile up this page tab area is going to get very crowded. So there is another enhancement that makes it better to visualize your page tab hierarchy and that's the ability to collapse and expand groups.
If we go up to the September Meetings tab and move to the right-hand side, you'll see this little icon, it looks like an up arrow, and this is going to collapse the group. So we'll give it a click, we'll move down to October and do the same. Now you can see the arrows have changed direction, indicating that we can go there to expand them when needed. Right now November Meetings are fully expanded. And if we want to go back to any of our October Meetings, you click that same icon that's now inverted to expand. When we are done, go back and collapse. So all these enhancements to the navigation of your notebooks will help you stay organized when working with a large number of sections, pages and sub-pages.
