I have a OneNote "tab" pinned to my Start screen. I've had this for quite a while, at lease since I've had my Lumia 925 (nearly a year).

I want to pin another note to the start screen, but I only see the option to pin a shortcut to "New Note" from OneNote. I've tried long pressing the note I want to pin, but it isn't an option.

Does anyone know if this is possible, or was the functionality removed at some point?

I'm currently running 8.1 Dev Preview.

    Strange, I can pin multiple pages to my Start screen just fine. Are you sure you're not trying to pin an entire section or notebook? – Indrek Apr 19 '14 at 18:49
  • I was thinking I could pin a section since I wanted to pin "Quick Notes" that Cortana creates. Got lost in the OneNote hierarchy! – jmmr Apr 20 '14 at 19:45

    Yeah, you can't pin notebooks or sections, just pages. At least in WP8. I understand this was possible in WP7, so perhaps MS will bring back this ability in the future. – Indrek Apr 20 '14 at 19:48

Just open the page, and there is shortcut to pin to start for each page under the three-dot menu (applies for both Windows Phone 8.0 and 8.1). Please check once more.

  • Ah, I was trying to pin the "section" because I wanted to pin the notes created by Cortana. I see, yes, it does work for pages like it always has. – jmmr Apr 20 '14 at 19:43

I've created an app that allows you to pin OneNote notebooks and sections to the WP start screen (needs 8.1). It's called Pinmore for OneNote. I hope you find it useful.
