How to Hide Navigation in OneNote Online

On February 3, my friend and Windows Insider MVP Joel Rushworth was a guest on the Tech Talk with Alan Perry  radio show on CFAX 1070. One thing I love about this show is that they use OneNote to manage their Show Notes.

He sent me a text during the show hoping for a quick answer to a OneNote question – he wanted to know:

“On OneNote via the web, is there a way to view just the page you’re working on and remove the menus?”

The answer is yes! 

And it’s pretty easy to do, if you know where to look. Unfortunately the button is tucked away so here’s how to do it.

How to Hide Navigation in OneNote Online:

  1. Open your Notebook in OneNote Online. Look in the navigation area on the left side of the screen.
  2. Click on the icon that looks like three stacked lines (the hamburger or the flapjacks icon).
  3. Click on the navigation icon and select Hide All from the list.

Here are some screenshots to help those that prefer a visual guide:

Hope that is helpful for other OneNote users out there.
