Organizing Notes into Sections and Folders

As you work with OneNote over time, you might collect notes about a wide variety of topics, and your virtual notebook could get disorganized. To help you keep track of them, you can divide your notebook into sections and folders. Sections can contain one or more pages or groups of pages. Folders can contain pages, sections, or other folders.

In this exercise, you will create a new section to record the notes you take while evaluating prospective vendors . You will also create a folder to store information related to the events you plan for The Garden Company.
