Typically, links are used to point to related information that does not need to be stored as part of your notebook. For example, you might link to a specific Wikipedia article that discusses something in greater detail than its brief description in your notes.

When it comes to organizing your notes and notebooks, however, the link functionality in OneNote offers a convenient way to link pages, sections, and entire notebooks together. The practical uses for this are virtually endless—from wiki creation to giving shared notebooks a real navigation system.

For example, corporate trainers can distribute reading materials electronically by sharing such content in notebooks where the pages and sections are linked for easy cross-referencing. A reader of the notebook can easily jump to various locations in the notebook by simply clicking the links.

The following procedures show you how you can use the commands that OneNote provides to create navigation links to various parts of your notebook content and how you can use the wiki syntax while typing notes to link to existing pages and sections or to dynamically create new pages that you want to link to.


Creating a Link to a Specific Notes Page

To create a link that will open a specific page in your notebook, follow these steps:

1.
Navigate to the page that the link should open when it is clicked and then right-click its page tab near the right side of the OneNote program window.

2.
On the shortcut menu that appears, click Copy Link to Page (see Figure 1).

Figure 1. Right-clicking a page tab lets you copy a link to that page, after which you can paste the link anywhere in your notes. It will automatically inherit the name of the page as the link text.


3.
Go to the notes page where you want the link to appear, click to activate the cursor, and then press Ctrl+V to paste the link.

When pasting links to pages, OneNote automatically copies the page title into the link text so you don’t have to type it again. It also formats the link in blue, underlined text to indicate that it is clickable.

After the link has been pasted, clicking it will immediately open the page it points to. To return to the previous page in your notebook, click the Back button on the Quick Access Toolbar near the upper-right corner of the OneNote program window.

In addition to creating a link to any page in any of your notebooks, you can also create a link to any specific paragraph of text or to an object on a page. To do this, move the mouse pointer over the text or object you want to link to and then right-click the four-headed arrow icon that appears next to it. On the menu that appears, click Copy Link to Paragraph. After you paste the copied link into your notes text, clicking it takes you to that specific position on the page where the text or object is located.


Creating a Link to a Specific Notebook Section

To create a link that will open a specific section in your notebook, follow these steps:

1.
Navigate to the section that the link should open when it is clicked and then right-click its section tab under the ribbon.

2.
On the shortcut menu that appears, click Copy Link to Section (see Figure 2).

Figure 2. Right-clicking a section tab lets you copy a link to that section, after which you can paste the link anywhere in your notes. It will automatically inherit the name of the section as the link text.


3.
Go to the notes page where you want the link to appear, click to activate the cursor, and then press Ctrl+V to paste the link.

When pasting links to sections, OneNote automatically copies the section title into the link text so you don’t have to type it again. It also formats the link in blue, underlined text to indicate that it is clickable.

After the link has been pasted, clicking it will immediately open the section it points to. To return to the previous section in your notebook, click the Back button on the Quick Access Toolbar near the upper-right corner of the OneNote program window.
