How to search for text on OneNote?

Answered by Yogi Kumar


OneNote can quickly find typed text, handwritten notes (if they were written on a table/slate or with a mouse), and even text inside pictures!


Critical Try it now! Search for the word "Microsoft"
















As you can see, OneNote found the handwritten word and the words in the two images to the right

  • < >Use the search box in the top right As you type, the pages that contain the word  begin to appear below - click on the page you want.  You are first given when Microsoft appears in the Title, then when it appears on the page. If you want to see a better view, click "Pin Search Results" at the bottom of the Search Box.
  • You can change the search to only search this notebook by clicking change and then selecting This Notebook.
