Create links to notebooks, sections, pages, and paragraphs in OneNote for Windows 10

It's easy to create and share links to specific parts of your notes — either to the entire notebook, to particular sections or pages, or even to a specific paragraph on a page. Such links can be useful whenever you want others to find related notes quickly, or when you want to create an interactive table of contents that others can use to navigate your notebook more easily.
