If you’re someone who frequently uses OneNote, you might have multiple Notebooks saved on it. However, there might come a time when you want to delete a Notebook from your OneNote. And although it seems like a simple task, it’s not as easy as right-clicking and selecting “close this Notebook.”
In this tutorial, we’ll guide you through the process of deleting a Notebook on OneNote. First and foremost, you need to know that simply closing a Notebook doesn’t delete it. If you right-click on the Notebook and select “close this Notebook,” it will disappear from your OneNote for Windows 10 on that device. But, you can still access it by clicking on “more Notebooks.”
To delete it permanently, you need to go to your OneDrive. In the search bar, search for the name of the Notebook you want to delete. It should be in a folder called “Documents.” However, that folder can be within any other folder, so locating it might be a bit tricky. We suggest you search for the name of the Notebook you want to delete.
Once you find the Notebook, select it, and click on “delete.” Now, it’s entirely deleted from your OneNote. However, it might still show up in your OneNote for Windows 10 and take some time to get removed entirely. But, don’t worry, it’s physically deleted from your OneNote.
In conclusion, deleting a Notebook from OneNote requires you to delete it from OneDrive. Simply closing the Notebook won’t delete it. But, by following the steps mentioned above, you can quickly delete it from your OneNote.
