Working with Pages
To create a section group, right-click the notebook name and then click New Section
Group. Give the new section group a descriptive name and drag sections into it (or create
new sections). Note that section groups can be nested within other section groups.
There’s nothing magical about section groups. They’re actually nothing more than
subfolders within the folder that contains the notebook. Creating a section group creates a new
subfolder, and moving sections to that section group moves the corresponding OneNote
Section files (with the .one file name extension) to that new subfolder.
Working with Pages
The techniques for working with pages are similar to those for working with sections. If you
right-click any page name in the page tabs bar, you can use options on the shortcut menu
to create a new page, delete the selected page, cut or copy the current page to the
Clipboard, or paste a page from the Clipboard to the current section.
To move quickly between pages in the current section, use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Page
Up (use Ctrl+Page Down to move through all pages in reverse order). To jump to the first
or last page in the currently visible set of page tabs, press Alt+Page Up or Alt+Page Down,
To rename a page, select the page title box and adjust the text there. You cannot directly
edit the title text shown on a page tab.
To change the order of pages in a section, drag the page tabs up or down in the page tabs
bar, or use the keyboard shortcuts Alt+Shift+Up Arrow/Down Arrow. To move a page to
a different section in the same or another notebook, drag the page to the Navigation bar
and drop it on a section tab. (Hold down Ctrl while dragging to create a copy and leave the
original page intact.) You can also right-click any page and choose Move Or Copy (or use
the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Alt+M) to choose a destination from a dialog box.
Selecting a page involves a few subtle techniques that can be confusing at first. For
example, if you click a page tab, the focus shifts to that page, and the insertion point appears on
the page at the point where it appeared when you last edited the page. If you’re picking
up where you left off with a set of meeting minutes or research notes, you can simply start
typing. If you click that page icon a second time (or use the Ctrl+Shift+A keyboard
shortcut), the entire page is selected, as indicated by a thick blue border around the page in the
contents pane. You’re then free to cut or copy the page to the Clipboard or press Delete to
send it to the OneNote Recycle Bin.
To create a new, blank page, click the New Page button at the top of the page tabs bar, or
use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+N. In either case, your page is added at the end of the
current list of page tabs. To add a new page just below a specific page, click its page tab and
press Ctrl+Alt+N. To create a new page at a specific location using the mouse, move the
