Here are details about OneNote for Windows 10 becoming the default OneNote experience with the release of Microsoft Office 2019.

 

  • With the launch of Office 2019 later this year, OneNote for Windows 10 will replace OneNote 2016 for Office 365 and Office 2019 customers
  • No new features are being added to OneNote 2016
  • OneNote 2016 will no longer be installed by default but will remain optionally available
  • If you use OneNote 2016, then you can continue to use it for as long as you want 
  • If you’ve never opened OneNote 2016, you’ll be automatically updated to OneNote for Windows 10 as soon as Office 2019 is released
  • Admins can configure OneNote 2016 to be installed with Office 2019 and Office 365

Frequently Asked Questions about OneNote in Office 2019 

 

Interesting news, consolidating the two OneNote programs makes a lot of sense but it's still somewhat of a surprise.

 

Local notebooks in OneNote for Windows 10 - One big point worth drawing attention to is there is no access to local notebooks in the Windows 10 app.  Notebooks need to be moved to the cloud to continue to use them or just keep OneNote 2016 to access local notebooks.

 

OneNote for Windows 10 supports offline access to notebooks, as it caches notebooks on your device when they are opened from the cloud.

 

I'd say also Windows 7 users will lose out, unless they upgrade to Windows 10, as Office 2019 will not be supported on this platform and of course OneNote for Windows 10 won't be available.

Thanks @Salvatore Biscari! I had my own go at this and have published a TechNet article - OneNote for Windows 10 replacing OneNote 2016 Overview.  There is also a companion chart available that might help some people - OneNote 2016 to OneNote for Windows 10 Chart.
