Learn how to locate, open, and sign in to OneNote for Windows 10.
- [Narrator] The OneNote for Windows 10 app comes with the Windows 10 operating system. While you could locate it by going to the Start menu, instead let's search for it. Start by selecting the field that says: "Type here to search", and type in the word one O-N-E. You'll get a list of results that match what we're searching for. This can be applications, as well as folders, and document names. Notice at the top that it is listing the best match as OneNote 2016. This is the desktop application.
We're looking for the Windows 10 application. That's OneNote that you see listed here. Let's go ahead and select this to launch this application. If this is the first time that you're launching this application, it's going to ask you to log in with your Microsoft account. That's the email address and the password that you're likely using for Office 365 at home or maybe work or business-wise. Once the application is open, it's going to look like what you see displayed on the screen. If you need to log out of the account or change the account that you're logged in with, go to the upper-right corner and select the name, and you can manage your accounts from here.
You can sign out of the current account or add an additional account. Let's go ahead and close out of this account menu. To have quick access to this app all the time, go back to the Windows 10 taskbar. Right click over the OneNote application and select Pin to taskbar. Even when the application is closed, as we're closing it here, you'll still find that application listed on the taskbar, and that's a quick way for you to launch the application once again. Now you're ready to create a notebook in the next movie.
