    What operating system? Basically, you need to change the installed options in Office. In Windows XP, you'd go to Add/Remove Programs, select Microsoft Office, and click the Change button. Then follow the screens to de-select One Note. In Windows 7, go to the Control Panel, and click Uninstall under Programs, right-click Microsoft Office, and select Change.

    In addition to the above suggestion (which is correct), you can also disable the OneNote printer by doing the following:

    Windows XP and older:
    Go to Start, then Control Panel, and click on Printers and Faxes. If you have any other printer on that window, right-click one and select Set as Default Printer. When you print new documents, you should no longer see that as the first option.

    Windows 7:
    Go to the Printers and Faxes window by searching for it in the Start Menu. You can also go to the Control Panel by clicking on the Start Menu and selecting the Printers and Faxes window there. Afterwards, follow the same instructions as above to set another printer as the default.

    Hope this helps,
    Carlos

    i went to control panel and deleted one note altogether. we'll see if that works.

    i tried the previous suggestion and using 'change' went into office. but i don't see any command that would allow me to delete or disable one note. i have windows xp, btw.

    i'm going to reboot, then try to print something and see if one note stays away.
