OneNote updated with colorful emoji and more for Slow ring Windows Insiders

Windows Insiders on the Slow ring are getting access to a batch of handy new features in OneNote now rolling out with the latest version of the app. Coming in at build 7967.5750, the update has already been in the hands of Fast ring Insiders for just under a week, and includes things like graphing for math equations, the ability to recover deleted notes, and most importantly, colorful new emoji.

Here's a look at all of what's included in this update:

  • See more of your notes: We've heard your feedback about the inflated size of the ribbon, context menus, and page list and have reduced the overall footprint of the OneNote interface, leaving you with more room on your screen to view and edit your notes.
  • Graph your math equations: Write an equation on any page, click Draw > Math, and OneNote can now help you draw a graph.
  • Recover deleted notes: We've all deleted a note or section accidently. Now you can restore notebook content by opening the Recycle Bin. In your Notebooks list, right-click the notebook you want, and then click View Deleted Notes.
  • Make notes accessible: Use the Accessibility Checker to identify and fix accessibility issues in your notes before sharing them with other people.
  • Save time with new keyboard shortcuts: We've updated our list of Keyboard shortcuts in OneNote for Windows 10 to include all the latest ways you can accelerate your note-taking.
  • Drag and drop pages and sections: Keep everything organized with a quick drag and drop of pages or sections into different sections and notebooks.
  • Organize sections into groups: Create section groups to make organizing and navigating large notebooks even easier. Right-click the + Section button, and then click New Section Group.
  • Use full color emoji: Say goodbye to black and white emoji. Now you can express yourself in full color.

The update should be up for grabs and available for download now at the Windows Store. Again, this is a Slow ring release only, but we should see these new features make their way out to everyone before too long.
