    Signing into Onenote app converts local account to microsoft account

    Steps:

    • Sign into a local account
    • Open the OneNote app (tablet not desktop app)
    • Sign in to this app with a Microsoft account
    The local account is then converted into a Microsoft account with that identity.

    This is wrong and unexpected behaviour as no indication is given that the sign in is for the whole of windows rather than just OneNote.

    It is also hard to revert.

    I am guessing that other apps may exhibit the same behaviour.

    In fact I don't understand how an app (which is supposed to be sandboxed and secure) can change user account information.

  3. Storing Onenote notes locally?


    When I used Evernote there was a facility to mark notes or a notebook for storage locally so they can be accessed when there is no internet connection. Is there a way to do similar in Onenote? I am using Onenote 2016 (the free one).

    OneNote app and desktop and quick notes


    Got it! There's one more step. For the notebook you've chosen for your Quick Notes as described by paulsalter, make sure that that notebook (on each device if you've tablet and PC like me) is syncing to OneDrive, if that's where you keep your OneNote work, as I do.

    I wouldn't know how to do that except that OneNote popped up a ribbon telling me the chosen Quick Notes notebook wasn't synced to OneDrive and would I like it to be?
