Set OneNote 2016 as Default Application

If "OneNote 2016" is installed on your PC, you should make sure that this is the default application for OneNote files and the OneNote protocol, as it offers much more features than the Windows 10 application "OneNote".

  1. Open Windows settings and navigate to "Apps" --> "Standard Apps".
  2. Scroll down the page and select "Set defaults by app".
    Select "Set defaults by app"
  3. Click on "OneNote 2016" and "Manage"
    Select "OneNote 2016" and "Manage"
  4. Make sure that "OneNote 2016" is set for each entry, especially for the entry "ONENOTE/URL:OneNote Protocol".
    Set "OneNote 2016" as Default
