Format a table in OneNote Online

After you insert a table on a page in OneNote Online, you can select it, modify it, and format it to change the way it looks.

  1. In OneNote Online, open the page containing the table you want to format.

  2. Click anywhere within the table to reveal the Table Tools tab on the ribbon.

  3. Under Table Tools, click Layout, and then do any of the following:

    • To precisely select any part of a table before applying formatting to the selection, use the commands in the Select ribbon group.

    • To delete any unneeded rows or columns from your table, use the commands in the Delete ribbon group.

    • To add any additional rows or columns to your table, use the commands in the Insert ribbon group.

    • To apply table borders to any parts of your table, use the commands in the Borders ribbon group.

    • To align the text within the cells of your table, use the commands in the Alignment ribbon group.

    • To apply a background color to selected cells in your table, use the commands in the Shading ribbon group.

Tip:  Commands in the Select, Insert, Delete, and Shading ribbon groups can also be applied by right-clicking within a table.
