Search for tagged notes

If you previously added tags to any of your notes, you can search them by tag keywords and review the results in an easy-to-read summary.

Note:  Note tags need to be associated with typed or handwritten notes in order for them to appear in your search.

  1. On the Home tab, in the Tags group, click Find Tags.

    You can find tags using the Tags Summary pane in OneNote.

  2. In the Tags Summary task pane that opens, click any tag in the list to open the page that contains the associated tagged note.

    Search for tagged notes in the Tags Summary pane

  3. If too many results are displayed, you can narrow the search at the bottom of the Tags Summary task pane by clicking the Search drop-down, selecting a narrower search scope from the list, and then clicking Refresh Results.

Tip:  If you want to view the tag search results as a notes page, click the Create Summary Page button at the bottom of the Tags Summary task pane.
