Personalizing the OneNote Interface
For step-by-step instructions on how to customize these common Office interface features,
see “Personalizing the Ribbon” on page 57, and “Customizing the Quick Access Toolbar” on
page 62.
The most useful set of personalization options for OneNote reflect the common desire to
hide clutter and maximize the workspace as much as possible. This is particularly
important when you’re typing class notes or meeting minutes on a notebook or netbook, where
screen real estate is severely limited. In that scenario, where access to other pages and
sections isn’t necessary, the quickest path to a clean workspace is the F11 key, which toggles
Full Page view (there’s also a Full Page View button on the View tab and on the Quick
Access Toolbar). In Full Page view, section tabs and page tabs are completely hidden, the
ribbon is minimized to just tab headings, and the Quick Access Toolbar remains visible. To
toggle back to Normal view, press F11 again. (You can also click the Full Page View button
on the Quick Access Toolbar or click the View tab to make its contents visible and then click
Normal View.)
For a less drastic solution, you can collapse the Navigation bar and page tabs bar. Click the
Collapse Navigation Bar arrow to the right of the Notebooks heading and the matching
Collapse Page Tabs arrow to the right of the New Page button above the page tabs bar.
With both elements collapsed, the main OneNote window looks like the example shown
in Figure 15-14. Note that the section tabs list is invisible and the list of open notebooks is
turned on its side. The page tabs bar is still visible, but it’s reduced to its absolute minimum
width.

notebooks. Use ScreenTips to identify page names and notebook locations.
