Some two years ago, I wrote a post about Microsoft discontinuing development of what was then OneNote 2016 in favor of OneNote for Windows 10. That announcement went over like a lead balloon, and since then Microsoft has stated that it will continue development of what is now called OneNote side by side with OneNote for Windows 10.

I recently took another look at OneNote for Windows 10 to see what updates, if any, had been made. I found that the only one stand out for me was immersive reader; it is the only reason I have OneNote for Windows 10 on my machine, but I rarely if ever use it. It is likely because of my workflow and when I choose to do my proofreading. Nevertheless, immersive reader is a worthwhile and important tool which I hope comes to OneNote.

Not much has been added to OneNote for Windows 10 except immersive reader, and when compared to what is missing it’s not enough to make OneNote for Windows 10 daily note-taking program. As demonstrated in the video while embedded files can now be edited if they’re embedded using OneNote for Windows 10 they cannot be viewed and either iOS or Android versions of OneNote. Additionally, there is still no ability just save notebooks to the hard drive. Finally, there is still no ability to create and use page templates.

What’s new in OneNote for Windows 10. Before doing the video I uninstalled and reinstalled OneNote for Windows 10.
