How can we improve OneNote for Windows?

Multiple OneNote windows

I'd like to have detachable OneNote windows. This would provide the facility to keep two sets of content in view simultaneously. It would, enable, for example, the ability to work with content from different sections or tabs at the same time, instead of switching between tabs/sections to do so, as now.

        Agreed - this is the one thing holding me back from dropping the desktop app in favor of the store app version.

        You do realise you can do that better than evernote does it?
        This is only reason im swiching from evernote to OneNote.

        CTRL + M opens new OneNote window - you can go full page if you dont need page lists and notebook / sections list - CTRL + M will open another window with same page and same layout

        this alone kills evernote for me

        It would allow to open few notes in same time like it is possible in Evernote.
        It is important feature if working on few notes at same time.

        The main thing holding me back from using OneNote App is the limitation of only having one instance/window of the OneNote App open at any given time.

        I use OneNote constantly, so I need to have more than one instance of OneNote 2016 open at all times. Thanks for your consideration! Keep up the great work!
