For all the windows users, when they will install the office 365 setup with office desktop app or office 2019 setup, the OneNote desktop app will be installed by default with other apps. which means the users will not have to install the OneNote app separately. The OneNote app can also be downloaded separately from the official website of Microsoft.

Microsoft will roll out the dark mode feature this week for its users. This will be available for Office 365 subscribers and non-volume licensing Office 2019 customers.

It means that the users will now get the best of OneNote even in the low light environment. The dark mode will make the work easier as it will provide a better contrast to the user that will eventually reduce the eyes strain. The dark mode can also be used as default for the app.
