Reading, moving, and deleting quick notes
Quick notes are kept in the Quick Notes section until you delete them or move them to a different section or page. To open the Quick Notes section, open OneNote 2013 (if necessary) and then, at the bottom of the Notebooks pane, click Quick Notes.
Quick notes are stored one to a page in the Quick Notes section. Click a page in the page tabs to read a quick note. The name of each quick note appears on a page tab. OneNote gets these names from the first bit of text in a quick note.
