  1. Is OneNote 2016 similar to the OneNote that was part of Office 2010?


    I just upgraded from Windows 7 / Office 2010 to Windows 10 and the version of OneNote I used previously was faster, had many more features, and felt like a desktop app.

    This new version feels slow and looks like it was a horrible port from a mobile phone or something. Does OneNote 2016 have more features with a more desktop feel to it?

    I'm considering rolling it back or ditching OneNote altogether. This does not feel like an improvement at all!

    :)

    Import OneNote 2010 into Windows 10 OneNote


    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:

    (Click screenshots to enlarge)
    2.) Open the File menu, select Info > Share on Web or Network:

    3.) Select Web, click Sign In:

    4.) Enter your MS account credentials:

    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.

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

    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:

    8.) Sign in to your MS account:
    '

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

    Note This is important! Do not click Next here, it will convert your local Windows user account to an MS account!

    10.) Click Start using OneNote:

    Is OneNote 2016 similar to the OneNote that was part of Office 2010? [​IMG]


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

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

    Import OneNote 2010 into Windows 10 OneNote


    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:


    Is OneNote 2016 similar to the OneNote that was part of Office 2010? [​IMG]


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


    Is OneNote 2016 similar to the OneNote that was part of Office 2010? [​IMG]



    Is OneNote 2016 similar to the OneNote that was part of Office 2010? [​IMG]


    You should now see a list of your notebooks:

    Is OneNote 2016 similar to the OneNote that was part of Office 2010? [​IMG]


    If no notebooks are found you will see this:

    Is OneNote 2016 similar to the OneNote that was part of Office 2010? [​IMG]


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

    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.
