    2 Onenote windows at once?


    Hi, is there any way to open 2 Onenote windows at once in Windows 10? I really miss this feature (along with the screen clipping that also seems to have disappeared or moved)

    If you mean the desktop version and not the universal app, you can still do it.
    Here I have 2 instances of OneNote open(in this case I just re-clicked the start menu icon again after the 1st instance was finished opening).
    Use the system tray icon or + Shift + S for a screenshot(bottom right in picture).

    I take it this is the universal version? Can it still be done?

    I just fiddled around with it, and it seems you can only open up one instance, and no, there is no screenshot option for the app.

    You can use Windows snipping tool(make sure it's set to also copy the screenshot to the clipboard, then just paste the snip. Same thing if you use a 3rd party tool like PicPick.

    I just tried opening two OneNote windows on my computer. With OneNote I can only open one window. With OneNote 2016 I can open multiple windows.

    Where is the .exe file for Onenote? I just checked program files (x86)/Microsoft Office/Onenote and there was no .exe there

    It's a universal app so it's not in Program Files or Program Files(x86). It's somewhere in the Windows folder and/or Program Data and/or AppData, I can't remember at the moment.

    It sounds like you may need the "bundled with Office" version to do what you want.

    Nope he doesn't.
    OneNote is a standalone too and absolutely free for quite a while now.

    Go here: Download OneNote

    I know there's a free version...it's been bundled with Windows for a while now, at least back to 8.1. Someone said earlier they weren't able to get the free version to be opened twice, so that may be a limitation of the free version (Post #5).
