  1. Some notebooks created with OneNote 2010 won't open with OneNote 2016


    Created several Notebooks using OneNote 2010. Moved to new laptop so downloaded free version of OneNote 2016 (not from Windows store). Some of the notebooks open, but when trying to open others, I get the message that I need Office 365 to view them.

    Why this inconsistent behavior --- some notebooks opening, some requiring 365? Any tips? Thank you!

    Windows 10, Surface Pro 7

    Access OneNote for Windows 10 notebooks in OneNote 2010


    I have spent hours trying to do something that should be simple, and have given up in frustration.
    I imported my Evernote notebooks into OneNote for Windows 10 successfully. According to Microsoft, I should be also able to view these notebooks in OneNote 2010. This has proved to be impossible. I can view and work with the notebooks in the Windows 10 app, but I can find no way to view these notebooks in OneNote 2010.
    The notebooks are in OneDrive online and I can see them there, but there is no option to open them in OneNote 2010.
    The links to the notebooks show up as internet shortcuts when I view my OneDrive folder in Windows Explorer, but if I try to open any of these in OneNote 2010, nothing happens.
    If I go to OneNote online, there is no option to use OneNote 2010 to open any of my notebooks.
    So am I just being dense? Am I missing something obvious? (It wouldn't be the first time!!)
    Or is there some secret way of doing something that should be simple?
    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    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:

    Some notebooks created with OneNote 2010 won't open with OneNote 2016 [​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:

    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:

    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:

    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).
