Creating new notebooks

If you're just starting out with OneNote, one of the first things you're going to do is create a brand-new notebook. Now it doesn't really matter if you have a notebook open when you go to do this. You can see in this case we're working with a couple of notebooks, our Office and our Home Projects notebooks. But maybe we need a third notebook. Well, in that case it's very simple. We just go to the Backstage View by clicking the File tab and click New. Now on the right-hand side, you can see we've got three options for where we are going to store this notebook. So right from the get-go, we can decide whether or not we're going to be sharing this notebook.

A couple of different options include sharing it via the Web. So people can actually use their browsers to access the notebooks. Or you might be storing it somewhere on a network. When you click Network, you are going to need to name your notebook as well as choose a location, and it has to be a network location where other people have access to that notebook. What if it's just for your own personal use? You might select My Computer. In this case, you choose a name and your location. This time it's not necessarily a network location. It can be anywhere such as your Documents.

So let's just choose My Computer and in the Name field we will just click there and we will type in the name of our new notebook. So let's say we have a project on the go for the User Conference for the year 2010. That might be a good name for our notebook. Once we've got it typed in, you can choose your location and there is a default location for new notebooks. That's what appears in the Location field. All I have to do now is click Create Notebook. And you'll notice we have a third notebook that's been open, and it's the one that's currently available to us in the open position.

You can see the icon looks a little bit different for this notebook. It's open while the other two are closed up. You are presented with a brand-new section. It's blank and if we look over at the page tabs on the right-hand side, you can see there is one new untitled page ready for you to type in the title at the very top. So the next step in the process of creating a new notebook, of course, will be creating the new sections, pages, and even subpages in your notebook.
