Check for updates in OneNote 2016 for Mac

Like most modern software, OneNote is frequently updated to add new functionality and to improve existing features. You can set up OneNote to periodically check for updates automatically, or you can do so manually on your own.

Check for updates automatically

  1. On the menu bar, click Help > Check for Updates.

  2. In the dialog box that opens, select Automatically, and then select how often you want OneNote to check for updates from now on (Daily, Weekly, or Monthly).

  3. Click Check for Updates.

Note: Even if no new updates are found after following these steps, the automatic update preferences you’ve selected will remain in effect after you close Microsoft AutoUpdate.

Turn off automatic updates and check for updates manually

  1. On the menu bar, click Help > Check for Updates.

  2. In the dialog box that opens, select Manually.

  3. Click Check for Updates.

Note: Following these steps checks for new updates once and then turns off Microsoft AutoUpdate. To receive the latest software updates for OneNote in the future, you’ll need to remember to periodically check for new updates again on your own.

Alternately, you can check for and get software updates for your Mac directly from the App Store.

Tip: Each time a software update has been successfully downloaded and installed, you can see what's new in OneNote 2016 for Mac.
