Creating tables in Microsoft OneNote is as simple as pressing "Tab." When you press "Tab" after typing a word or phrase in OneNote, the program assumes the text is the first entry in a row of data and creates a cell around the information. Once you reach the end of a row, pressing "Enter" creates a new row. OneNote will automatically adjust cell, row and column sizes based on the data you enter, but you can manually adjust column size with a click of your mouse.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Select your table by clicking inside one of its cells.

  2. 2

    Position the mouse cursor over the column edge you want to adjust. The cursor will change to the column adjustment icon.

  3. 3

    Click and hold the column edge. Drag the mouse left or right to increase or decrease the cell size. Release the mouse when you are satisfied with the new column size.
