How to change the background image of a OneNote document

This tutorial will show you how to make any picture the background image for a Microsoft OneNote document.

Microsoft OneNote is one of the most useful applications in the Microsoft Office suite, especially for incessant note-takers and bloggers. Sometimes it can be helpful to add background images to notes to help identify them, or to help imply their theme/topic. Sometimes it just makes the notes look cooler :)

Here’s how to specify custom background images in Microsoft OneNote 2010 –

  1. Open Microsoft OneNote 2010 and click on the Insert tab from the main ribbon.
  2. Click on the Picture icon from the Insert tab.
  3. Navigate to the image you want to set as your OneNote note background, select it and then click the Insert button.

  5. After you’ve added the picture, right click on it from the main OneNote 2010 writing pane and select Set Picture as Background.
  6. This will make the image a background one, rather than an “in-note” image. You can now type in the writing pane with the image serving as the background. That’s it, enjoy!
