What is the difference between notepad and one note. I need to do a project work in notepad but I am not able to find one note in my window 10 operating system.

Apparently you have to search for it:

Found this explanation on this site:

https://community.windows.com/en-us...

"The difference lies in the use we give to these tools: 1) OneNote and Word require a Microsoft account, being the first a note taking app with support for formatting and multimedia, and the second a word processing app; 2) Notepad and Wordpad are included in Windows, Notepad being just a plain text note taking app while Wordpad includes fancy formatting and support for rich media, but not word processing features such as syntax, grammar, and spell checking; 3) I'd like to add Sticky Notes to this list, as it is a tool bundled with Windows, serving to take plain text notes; so, any of these 5 tools are able to be used to take plain text notes; OneNote orders notes in a database, Wordpad is able to format a note to be printed nicely, while Word Online is part of Microsoft 365, and it is able to store files in OneDrive, a cloud storage service offered free of charge to users with a Microsoft account.

If you want to find Notepad in Win 10 (or most other apps) just type in Search.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I "note" that the title of this thread is identical, including the
grammatical error, to the title of one of the links in Johnw's
Google search results. That was another thread here on
computing.net back in 2014.

> is NotePad and OneNote the same in windows 8?

With that in mind, I also "note" that the title asks about
Windows 8, but the text of the OP question asks about
Windows 10. Not that they are different in this regard.

I'd answer the actual question, but I've never used
OneNote, so I dont really know anything about it.

Oh, also, the OP says he/she needs to use notepad, but
then says that he/she can't find one note. Eh??
