I tried to remove a Quick Note from OneNote in my Lumia 525 Windows Phone by long pressing a Quick Note and I found two options. One is Pin to start and another one is Delete. But that delete option is invisible so I was not able to delete a Quick Note. I tried marking and deleting but at that time also delete option is invisible. Is there any alternative way to delete a Quick Note? Does it is an issue with my mobile or with Windows 8.1 OS? See the screen shot for clear understanding.

    I have seen this couple of times, the best way to delete this is to go to OneDrive.com on PC and try deleting the individual notes.

    Switched off your mobile data and wifi and then try. It gives option to delete one note

Don't worry. I have experienced it before, until I found that you just have to wait. Turn your data connection on (in my case, wifi) and wait for a couple of seconds until the app synchronises. Then, the delete option will become available. Try it.

So, as I said, you just have to wait depending on your data or wifi speed. I had to wait about 23seconds. Patience is the key.

  • Notice the screenshot. The OP is on Wi-Fi. I have also experienced this problem with full LTE service, and with the app synced completely.

  • Notice the screenshots. It should clarify your doubt. Patience is the key.

The Quick Notes section is not an actual notebook but a section for the notes just on your phones which don't get synced. Basically your local default note storage. Therefore you can't delete it.

    I might be wrong, but I think Sathiya Kumar is wanting how to delete a note within Quick Notes, not the entire Quick Notes section...
