Microsoft has unified its OneNote and OneNote for Windows 10 apps into a single app over the past year, and now there’s only one version of OneNote in the Windows Store. The big OneNote merger, as I call it, saw some features from the OneNote UWP app for Windows 10 come to the traditional OneNote desktop app, along with a visual refresh.
Now, Microsoft wants to make sure you download the correct version of OneNote in the future. “OneNote for Windows 10 will no longer be available in the Microsoft Store,” the OneNote team explains in a blog post. “It will continue to work, but it will not get new feature updates and will reach end of support in October 2025.” If you still need to download the OneNote UWP version on a new device, you can technically still use the direct store link here as a workaround.
Inking and dictation both arrived in this main OneNote app in recent months, along with a streamlined single-line ribbon that makes the main interface a little less cluttered. But this full-featured OneNote app still isn’t as light and tactile as the OneNote for Windows 10 version. abandoned its Universal Windows Platform application dream.
