    thanks for the photos!
    your shortcut is labeled OneNote, not OneNote for Windows 10.
    how on earth does it open the app?

    PS i can't uninstall OneNote (Office 16) as it's part of a 365 package i download from the university

    Interesting. I followed your path and OneNote is not on my taskbar User Pinned list either.

    Maybe you are getting to the bottom of this when you say you can't remove.

    My OneNote was replaced by this Window 10 app. I don't actually recall doing this. It removed the old Onenote.

    In my program list it is called OneNote for Windows 10.

    I wonder if yours is getting confused.

    Under default apps, by protocol, is OneNote for Windows 10 the only default app.

    bam! when i right-click to change the default, it sends me to the app store where it can't find the protocol name.

    We are still different.

    I don't have a ONENOTEDESKTOP.

    Makes sense that App store wouldn't have desktop app.


    So how to change to just Onenote as in my screen shot.


    Maybe ask tech support at university.

    Is this article of any use. Thinking if you set defaults by app.

    i think you fixed it ken!
    i overlooked the OneNote protocol at the top.
    set it to OneNote for Windows 10,
    pinned it to the Taskbar,
    so far so good.

    thank you for your time and helping me resolve this issue.
