OneNote for Windows 8/RT Receives an Update with Office 365 Support

Microsoft announced an update to its OneNote app for Windows 8/RT users. The update includes a couple of new noticeable features and bug fixes.


The major addition in the update is Office 365 support. Now users will be able to log in with their Office 365 account. This feature helps you to access your work notes easily.

For this, you need to click on the ‘More Notebooks’ drop-down menu available in the left pane. Then you can find a plus icon, which you can tap to log in with your work or school account to view more notebooks.

One great thing about the app is that you can type anywhere. If you want to just jot down something, you can go ahead. But if you don’t want to type, you can now kick out the on-screen keyboard, which was missing in the earlier version. With this, you can use the whole screen for reading your notes. You can just tap anywhere on any empty space in the notebook to close the onscreen keyboard.

This may be a minor addition, but it’s actually essential for the touch screen devices.
