Change the color of notebooks and sections

You can change the color of your notebook or sections — either for aesthetic purposes or to visually categorize your notebook content in OneNote in the same way you might differentiate notebooks or sections of a traditional paper notebook.

Change the color of a notebook

  1. Tap the Show Notebooks button Show Notebooks button to open to the notebook list.

  2. Tap and hold the notebook whose color you want to change, and then at the bottom of the notebook list tap the Color Color icon icon.

  3. Chose the color you want for your notebook and then tap Done.

Change the color of a section

  1. Tap and hold the tab of the section whose color you want to change, and then at the bottom of the section list:

    • On iPad, tap the Edit Edit icon icon and choose Change Section Color.

    • On iPhone, tap the Color Color icon icon.

  2. Chose the color you want for your section and then tap Done.
