OneNote 2013 – free version shows logon window for a short while and then quickly disappears

By Bjorn Houben

OneNote is one of my favorite note taking applications. I use it on a large number of devices and platforms and like always having my notes available and up-to-date no matter what because they are stored synced to on OneDrive.
Recently I found it out that OneNote is freely available for many platforms at : https://www.onenote.com/download

After installing it I had some trouble getting it to work because a logon window appeared and quickly disappeared, not allowing me to access my notes.

For me the solution was as simple as opening OneNote’s web version on http://www.onedrive.com and asking it to open in OneNote. After that it kept working. I’m not sure why it happened and the solution is simple, but unfortunately it can take a while before you discover this simple workaround.

I hope this will save others the hassle.
