Save notes and notebooks

Unlike in other Microsoft Office applications, there’s no Save command in OneNote. That’s because manually saving your work in OneNote is never necessary.

OneNote automatically and continually remembers and saves everything you do — including typing, editing, formatting, organizing, searching, and sharing your notes. You can even safely exit OneNote at any time without first closing your notebooks or manually saving any of your work. OneNote saves and retrieves everything automatically.

Don’t believe it? Try it out for yourself. Go to any page in your notebook, type some text, and then immediately exit OneNote. Start it up again and you’ll see the last page you were on — complete with the last text you typed.
