  • It's easy to uninstall Microsoft OneNote from your Windows or Mac computer if you no longer want to use the program.
  • You can uninstall OneNote from your Windows PC through your computer Settings using the "Add or remove programs" section.

OneNote is a popular note-taking app that's available on both the Mac and Windows as a free download or as part of a Microsoft 365 subscription.

Here's how to do it on a Mac and Windows PC.
