Hi

 

I am about to move schools and I would like to take my onenote books with me to my new organisation.  Is there a way to export my book?  It seems like it should be possible

 

Thanks in advance

Unfortunately that is for the old version of onenote.  Is there a way for the version of windows 10?

 

Thanks

I have the Office 365 Version. It's working on my device. Can you maybe provide your version and a screenshot when you enter in Onenote "File" to show us ur menu

There is no "file" menu?  Is there a different version of OneNote - I am using the one that comes with Windows 10.

Thanks

Oh shit. Mh okay let's try this:
Are there any possibilitys to share your notebook?
Is this your personal computer?
Does you have access to onenote web?

Maybe the following articles help you aswell:

I will look later, but that looks like onenote 2016 again. I may have to install the old version to export. Seems like a fairly simple thing I want to do...
Hi,
I'd try to look at the Onenote files at server side (at onedrive.com) and export from there.

There is no way of copying the files from onedrive, they are just weblinks.

Hi@MartynWheeler 

Are you sure? I can export them from there.

Maybe you should first click on the Onenote icon (the icon for the Onenote app on the Onedrive page).

Kind regards

Hans

Here is what I see, no option to copy/export?

Hi,
Try
right-click on one of the onenotes
or
click on the three vertical points
Kind regards
Hans

Thanks, yes I tried that but it only allows it to be moved within OneDrive - not possible to move to an external drive.

Hi@MartynWheeler 

Move?? You talked about download. Yes, sure you can't -move- the file from a cloud environment to a local environment.

Don't you see EXPORT?

No, there is no export. just the options shown in the screenshot. I thought move might be microsoft's idea of export. There seems to be no way of doing this.
