Add and Rename a Section

Add a section

In OneNote, you can add new sections to your notebook whenever you want. Sections can be named to better identify the pages they contain and how they relate to a particular subject.


  1. At the bottom of the section list, click the + Section button.

  2. When the New Section placeholder name is highlighted, type a name or description for the new section, and then press Enter.

    Each new section you create will automatically contain a blank, untitled page for you to start taking notes on.


Rename a section

As you add and remove pages from your notebook over time, the names of some of your sections might no longer be accurate since you first created them. You can easily rename sections to better summarize the pages they contain.


  1. In the section list, right-click the section name you want to change, and then click Rename Section.

  2. Type the new section name you want, and then press Enter.
