How To Add A Page in OneNote Exactly Where You Want It

Sometimes I feel like I’m a little slow picking things up, kind of like the kid at the back of the class eating paste. Today is one of those days. As I’ve talked about in my Netcasts, I use OneNote a lot. Every day. I’d be miserable without it. I’d give up sliced bread before I gave up OneNote. One of my biggest complaints is that there is no automated way to sort the pages (the things along the right hand side), either alphabetically or numerically. Over the years I’ve kept sections (the things across the top) for customers, projects, and Netcasts. All things that benefit greatly from having the pages (still on the right) in a predictable order. For years I’ve clicked “Add Page” at the top of the pages column, which puts my shiny new page allllll the way at the bottom of the pages. Then, like a punk, I drag it up to wherever I want. It’s pretty inefficient and it always makes me feel rotten about myself.

And then today happened. 

I was in OneNote, like I always am, and I noticed this little gem:


Being the curious, and not very smart, sort, I clicked it to see what would happen. What happened was marvelous! Miraculous! Super seriously cool! It created a page, right there!!!! You read that right, right there! No more dragging the page up from the deep depths of the page list. I didn’t think it was possible, but I think I love OneNote even more today than I did yesterday.

If you haven’t already seen, OneNote is free. And you can Email your notes into OneNote with And I also heard that it was OneNote that invented magnets, and just gave the world that technology. True story.




OneNote Really is Underrated

I agree OneNote is an absolute gem in Microsofts toolkit.

I haven't looked at either of those plugins, but they look good.

Also you could

You could also right click the page and select new page. Then again that + button is a little quicker :-)

Also, if you ever have the need to create sub pages you can either right click and "make subpage" or you can drag the page to the right within that bar

Re: Also you could

Like I said in the blog post, I feel like everyone but me knew about this. :)

Here's another one you might not have noticed...

Hey Todd.
Noticed how excited you were about this and being a fellow OneNote lover/proponent, I thought I'd share another gem that it seems many aren't aware of (and frankly I wasn't until a few months ago - ah, the wasted time I could have recouped).

I made a quick video because it's late, Scotch is in hand and I was too lazy to blog about it.

Thanks for the video. Very cool.
