5. Take advantage of templates
A plain white page isn't the only option for your notes. OneNote features a number of pre-formatted options that can give your notes a more professional look or just liven them up.
To choose a template, open a note and select Insert > Page Templates. Arrow down to one of the five categories — Academic, Blank, Business, Decorative, and Planners — and click on one to see your choices. Select a template to apply it to the currently opened note.
If you've formatted a note yourself that you want to save as a template, open it and select Insert > Page Templates. On the Templates pane, select Save Current Page as Template. Enter a name for your design in the dialog box that appears and click Save. A new category called My Templates will appear on the pane with your template in it.
