The new 2016 version of OneNote comes free now with Windows 10 which is a real bonus if you haven’t used it before but it has been stripped down to perform more like a tablet app rather than a fully functional version of what used to be a purchased piece of software. I own OneNote 2007 and have used it a lot but it won’t work now the new free version is on my computer. I cannot find it and I cannot reload it. Windows 10 offers to repair or remove which isn’t a lot of help. End of complaint. I have just started to use the new OneNote because it is a very handy app for planning and organising and it does help me to set things out clearly and logically so that I have all the information, pictures, resource links and ideas together in one place. If you don’t know it , give it a try. You can add Onetastic or just Onecalendar which increase the functionality of OneNote. They too are free. The Microsoft OneNote site gives more information.
P.S. It is 2 hours later and since I wrote this post my 2007 version of OneNote now can open and access the numerous .one files I had saved. Now I have the benefit of both worlds and thank Windows 10 for hearing my thoughts and taking action.
