I've OneNote link-to-page Shortcut files like these: OneNote link-to-page Shortcut files What I'm looking for is when I open any of these shortcuts, the page will be opened in a new window (not an existing one).

OS: Windows 10 | Office: 2016


Suggested solutions (Not yet solving my question):

  • Solution 1:

Your shortcut must have the link in this format:

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\ONENOTE.EXE" /sidenote /hyperlink "onenote:https://d.docs.live.net/...." Exactly with the quotation marks.

the onenote:https:... is the second part of the link provided by Onenote when selected the copy link to page option

This solution is very good. But it needs a workaround to make OneNote not to ask me the security confirmation each time I open a shortcut (Like shown in the screenshot). Also I don't want the notebook to be opened as a side-note such that Tabs and Commands ribbon is not hidden and Page navigation pan also is not like in a side-note.

There is a crude and awkward way to keep the current page visible while opening the linked page in a new window: Ctrl-m for a copy of the current page, then execute the link on the copied page.

Some dirty solution for local notebooks (at least for Win8.1 & OneNote 2013):

We can get the dirty link, something like:

onenote:#blablabla&section-id={F25AE932-082B-4B58-B818-25BBC7804DD9}&page-id={7E6ACA4E-BA6F-45BA-ACD0-D001F311D1A2}&end&base-path=C:\blabla\blaOneNote\blaBook\blaSection\blablapage.one

Our goal is to extract and execute a link, that looks like:

onenote:///C:\&section-id={F25AE932-082B-4B58-B818-25BBC7804DD9}&page-id={7E6ACA4E-BA6F-45BA-ACD0-D001F311D1A2}&end

BONUS: "How to open on page link in a new window by mouse-button?"

PowerPro macros for "right double anywhere" (over the link):

keys {esc}
wait.for(1) 
keys ^m     ; ctrl+m - onenote "new window" hotkey
wait.for(5) 
keys {enter}
