Check for updates in OneNote for Mac

Like most modern software, OneNote for Mac 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 Microsoft AutoUpdate dialog box that opens, select either the Automatically Check or the Automatically Download and Install option.

  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 Microsoft AutoUpdate dialog box that opens, select Manually Check.

  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, if you downloaded OneNote for Mac directly from the App Store, see Update the software on your Mac.

Tip: Whenever a OneNote software update has been successfully installed, you can learn more about what's new in OneNote for Mac.
