How To Change The Name Of A OneNote Notebook On SharePoint

Changing the name of a OneNote notebook on SharePoint is a simple process that can be done through the OneDrive website. By following a few easy steps, you can update the name of your notebook to better reflect its contents or purpose. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you through the process:

1. Open a web browser and go to the OneDrive website, using the same Microsoft account that you use with OneNote.

2. Open the Documents folder under My Files.

3. Find the notebook you want to rename by searching or browsing through the list.

4. Hover over the notebook and click the empty circle to the top-right, or tap and hold on it.

5. In the toolbar at the top of the screen, click or tap Rename.

6. Give your notebook a new name and click Rename.

7. Sync your notebooks again before using them.

It’s important to note that renaming the notebook will stop sharing it with collaborators, so you’ll need to re-share it with anyone who needs access.
