OneNote app for Windows 10 v17.8241.5759 gets a huge update

Windows users might have noticed, there are 2 versions of OneNote app. One is available as a Desktop app while other can be downloaded from the Windows Store. The latter has four important things missing:

  1. Non-paragraph styles like headings
  2. Bulleting styles
  3. Ability to clear formatting
  4. Format Painter (to copy formatting elsewhere).

Despite this, the Windows Store app still has edge over OneNote 2016. Why?  OneNote for Windows 10 is regularly updated with new features. The latest release – OneNote Version 17.8241.5759 accommodate certain new features. Let us cover them for you in this post.
