The OneNote July Update is now rolling out for Windows devices via the Windows Store, and it’s adding a few new features to boot.
Most important, and most visibly, is the new multi-window feature (pictured above in preview form) which made its debut for OneNote Preview users a few months ago. Now users running the current app via the Store will be able to make use of this productivity booster. It’s easily accessed via the view tab, letting you launch another window (and another, and so on) so you can see multiple notebooks at once. This feature is especially useful if you’re someone who often needs to cross-reference different notes and frequently loses time due to jumping between various pages and notebooks.
For the more traditional note-takers who prefer pen and “ink”, the OneNote team has also added support for custom pens – useful if you’re on devices like the pen-enabled Surface Pro and other Windows Ink-powered devices.
The update isn’t rolling out to everyone just yet, but it should be available to all in a matter of days.
OneNote has gotten rapidly better in the past few months, and Microsoft is improving the app to make it a better tool for students and writers alike.
