I'm using OneNote 2010 to build a shared input document, and I've saved the page as a .one file in order to share with my correspondent via e-mail. (Network sharing is not an option).

When I open the .one file, OneNote shows the Navigation Bar:

and the Pages Bar (is that what it's called?):

This is really annoying because

  1. It's only a single page; I don't need notebook-level navigation
  2. I don't want the page scrolling left and right when I'm editing, but
  3. It's already a very long page, and having to constrain the width even as much as the bars do when they're "minimized" is detrimental

Is there a way to hide/close these two bars?


Yes there certainly is. Open your notebook file then select the View menu at the top then select Full Page. They will go Bye Bye immediately. I am assuming if you close it/save it that way it stays that way. We are both about to find out :)

  • So update... it works but not in terms of when it's reopened. You seem to have to go Full Page view each time. It seems F11 will do this as a hot key if that helps. – OG Chuck Low Dec 12 '11 at 19:12

    F11 does what I want to, but it's unfortunate that it's not the default view. Thanks for the tip! – arootbeer Dec 12 '11 at 20:28
