    Import OneNote 2010 into Windows 10 OneNote


    I see the new Windows 10 OneNote, and it looks pretty different to me from OneNote 2010, but I wanted to at least try it. But I can't find anyway to import my notebooks from 2010. Is there anyway to do this? I keep getting messages about "updating", but I don't know if that's for OneNote 2016 or Windows 10.

    So my questions are:

    1) Can you import notebooks from OneNote 2010 into Windows 10?

    2) Is there a good reason to do so? I.e., use Windows 10 OneNote?

    Thanks,
    Carl

    :)

  2. Does the Windows 8 phone synch with Outlook notes?

    Depending on the version of Office 2007 that you've got, OneNote may be included as part of the suite. After you install OneNote to your computer, you can enable the OneNote Add-in to Outlook that lets you link Outlook notes to OneNote notes. The linking
    feature and the integration between OneNote and Outlook only applies to Mail, Contacts, Calendar, and Tasks. There isn't a way to link Outlook Notes to OneNote.

    Unfortunately, there's not a nicely wrapped, direct way to move your Outlook Notes to OneNote. I know a lot of folks just manually copied and pasted each Outlook Note into separate notes within a OneNote notebook...and I originally resigned myself to doing
    that too. But it got to be pretty tedious for me, so I searched around and found some great help in a series of articles that were written by John Guin over at the MSDN blogs.

    Export Your Outlook Notes to OneNote 2007

    This option only works if you are using OneNote 2007. When I moved all my Outlook Notes to OneNote, I was using Outlook 2007 at the time. This program let me export my Outlook Notes directly to a OneNote 2007 notebook. That program only work with OneNote
    2007 and does not work with OneNote 2010. If you currently have OneNote 2007,
    you can get the exporter program at this link
    .

    I originally used a trial version of OneNote 2007 when I exported my notes. Since Windows Phone is tightly integrated with OneNote 2010. I eventually purchased OneNote 2010, and OneNote 2010 converted all my OneNote 2007 notebooks to the 2010 format.

    An Outlook routine to export sticky notes and then import them to OneNote

    If you don't have access to OneNote 2007, then you can follow the instructions in this link to export
    your Outlook Notes to text files that can then be imported into OneNote 2010 through a separate powertoy (which I've linked below). Even through I did not need to use these instructions myself, I have used them just to see how they work and found the instructions
    quite easy to follow.

    The text importer powertoy gets updated for OneNote 2010


    Once you've exported your Outlook notes to text files (following the instructions in the link above) you can use the text importer powertoy to import them into a OneNote 2010 notebook.

    MS Office 2010 - OneNote

    Does MS Office 2010 - OneNote work in Windows 10? I see that MS Office 2010 works and was tested in Windows 10 but OneNote was not tested. Can someone verify OneNote works in Windows 10?

    Thank you.

    Import OneNote 2010 into Windows 10 OneNote

    Save your notebooks to OneDrive in OneNote 2010. You can then open them in any version of OneNote (OneNote online, OneNote 2013 & 2016, Windows OneNote App).

    That sounds good, but I can't figure out how to open in OneNote. I saved a notebook as a onepkg, but can only seem to open it in OneNote 2010. Can you help?

    Having moved to Office 2016, I had to first install Office 2010 to a virtual test machine to get screenshots. Here we go, this is the the process which you have to repeat for each notebook you want to open in Windows 10 built-in OneNote app.

    1.) If your notebooks are already stored in OneDrive, jump to step 7. If they are stored locally, open OneNote 2010.

    I created a simple Sample Notebook to show this process:

    Import OneNote 2010 into Windows 10 OneNote [​IMG]
    (Click screenshots to enlarge)
    2.) Open the File menu, select Info > Share on Web or Network:

    Import OneNote 2010 into Windows 10 OneNote [​IMG]


    3.) Select Web, click Sign In:

    Import OneNote 2010 into Windows 10 OneNote [​IMG]


    4.) Enter your MS account credentials:


    Import OneNote 2010 into Windows 10 OneNote [​IMG]
    Note If you have enabled two-step authentication on your MS account, you need first create an app password and use it here instead of the MS account password.

    Import OneNote 2010 into Windows 10 OneNote [​IMG]

    5.) Select in which OneDrive folder you want to save the notebook, click Share Notebook:

    Import OneNote 2010 into Windows 10 OneNote [​IMG]


    6.) Close OneNote 2010

    7.) Open Windows 10 OneNote app. If you sign in to Windows with a Microsoft (MS) account, jump to step 11. If you sign in with a local account click Personal Microsoft Account:

    Import OneNote 2010 into Windows 10 OneNote [​IMG]


    8.) Sign in to your MS account:
    '
    Import OneNote 2010 into Windows 10 OneNote [​IMG]


    9.) Enter your Windows password, click Sign in to just this app instead:


    Import OneNote 2010 into Windows 10 OneNote [​IMG]
    Note This is important! Do not click Next here, it will convert your local Windows user account to an MS account!

    Import OneNote 2010 into Windows 10 OneNote [​IMG]


    10.) Click Start using OneNote:

    Import OneNote 2010 into Windows 10 OneNote [​IMG]


    11.) You can now start using Windows 10 OneNote app, having access to your notebooks:

    Import OneNote 2010 into Windows 10 OneNote [​IMG]


    Remember that you can also use, access and edit your notebooks stored in OneDrive online at outlook.com:

    I've done every step up to 10, but I still can't see my notebook that I saved to one drive.

    Import OneNote 2010 into Windows 10 OneNote

    By default OneNote opens the last notebook you had open. To open other notebooks you need of course first open them.

    Click the Navigation button:

    Import OneNote 2010 into Windows 10 OneNote [​IMG]


    Click More notebooks:

    Import OneNote 2010 into Windows 10 OneNote [​IMG]


    Select the notebook you want to open:

    Import OneNote 2010 into Windows 10 OneNote [​IMG]


    The notebook will be opened:

    Warning Please edit your post remove the screenshot. It is irrelevant but it shows your real email address. It is not a good idea to reveal your factual contact information in your posts!

    OK, not seeing any notebooks when More notebooks is selected means there are no notebooks stored on this MS account.

    I have tested the instructions I have posted now on another virtual machine and whatever I try, I can't make it fail. I installed Office 2010 including OneNote to Windows 10, signing in to Windows with a local account and creating a few sample notebooks in OneNote 2010, storing them locally.

    I then shared them using OneDrive as I showed with screenshots in my earlier post. I closed OneNote 2010, opened OneNote app and my notebooks were immediately there under More notebooks.

    I simply cannot make this fail! I am sorry but I am not able to help you any further; the instructions already posted show the correct way to do what you want to do, I have tested and retested them and there are no errors in them.

    Something I thought is worth to test:

    Go to OneNote Online (Microsoft OneNote | The digital note-taking app for your devices), sign in if you are not automatically signed in:


    Import OneNote 2010 into Windows 10 OneNote [​IMG]


    Select Sign in with a Microsoft account, in the next dialog enter your MS account credentials:


    Import OneNote 2010 into Windows 10 OneNote [​IMG]



    Import OneNote 2010 into Windows 10 OneNote [​IMG]


    You should now see a list of your notebooks:

    Import OneNote 2010 into Windows 10 OneNote [​IMG]


    If no notebooks are found you will see this:

    Import OneNote 2010 into Windows 10 OneNote [​IMG]


    Please tell us when testing this did you see your notebooks in OneNote Online?

    OneNote online is very practical, as long as you save your notebooks in OneDrive. It allows you to access your notebooks from any device, even when OneNote is not installed on device you are using.
