In August 2021, Microsoft announced its intention to combine different versions of OneNote for Windows into a single app to reduce confusion. Until now, the company had two versions of OneNote at once (or even three, given the web application) with different names – “OneNote” and “OneNote for Windows 10”. At the same time, the second application is also available on Windows 11, but this is not reflected in the name.
And work in this direction is really underway. This week, Microsoft removed the old OneNote for Windows 10 app from the Microsoft Store and instead released a new version of OneNote. Of course, now it will not be possible to find the old application through the search, but you can still install it by going to by direct link.
Recall that the unified application is based on the classic OneNote Win32 application. It was decided not to develop the UWP version of OneNote for Windows 10, although it will be supported until October 2025 so that users can seamlessly switch to the new application. Some features from OneNote for Windows 10 will be carried over to the new OneNote app.
