A new popup greeted me when I opened the desktop version of OneNote 2013 (desktop) today… check it out:
Wanting to see what would happen if I clicked “Ask me later,” I later discovered that the next time I opened the program, it was slow to load…
(There was a moment of panic when I thought I was going to be stuck with a white screen of death, but it resolved itself within seconds – I’m simply extremely impatient, and OneNote is usually lightening fast – even when I have 18 notebooks packed with pages and sections open.)
If you do select “Don’t ask me again” you can change your mind later and make OneNote 2013 (desktop) the default OneNote application by going to:
File > Options > Advanced > (scroll down) > Default OneNote Application > select tick box
And vise versa, if you do select “Make this version default” you can also change your mind later by going to:
File > Options > Advanced > (scroll down) > Default OneNote Application > unselect tick box
But here’s the $100 question – if OneNote 2013 (desktop) is not currently my default OneNote experience, when what is?
UPDATE: The answer is the OneNote App!
So what do you want to do? Desktop or App?
If you prefer the OneNote 2013 desktop experience, so I select “make this version default” or I check the checkbox.
If you prefer the OneNote App, then select “don’t ask me again” or uncheck the checkbox.
