    How Can I Change The Date In One Note


    Hello All,
    I love the One Note app, but the date and time that it shows on the top of every page is off by about 3 weeks, and the time is off by about 5 and half hours. Is there any way that I can re-set the date and time in One Note?

    Most Windows-based programs take their time and date from the computer's settings. Click the clock on the Notification Area and check your settings for Time Zone, Date and Time.

    I just checked my Notification Area and my date and time are definitely set correctly there. Also, there is a list of apps in that section that get their time settings from the Notification Area, and One Note is not on that list. What do I do next?

    I presume you're talking about the page creation date and time which appear automatically at the top left of each OneNote page just under the title. I don't know what version of OneNote you're using, but in 2013, that is inserted automatically from the Current date and time when the page is created. You can click on that and change it, but I don't believe there is a setting you can tweak to alter it automatically.

    Alright, thank you. I have been playing around with it and I found a button that changes it.

    Okay, some folks have tried to help, would you kindly share where you found the button?
