The laetst move by Microsoft is seen by experts as an attempt to increase the heat on Evernote, the biggest player in the note-taking space.The importer tool’s webpage even has a comparison chart which makes feature to feature comaprison to drive home the superiority of OneNote. According to the Venturebeat, Microsoft is targeting Evernote apparently because of the fact that the Evernote has been struggling of late and Microsoft smells blood.

Here is the step-by-step process:

  1. Download the installer, accept the End User License Agreement, and run it.
  2. If your notes are synced locally, the OneNote Importer will automatically discover your Evernote notebooks. Pick the ones you want to import into OneNote. If not, you can import notes from an Evernote export: click Choose File, and then select the .enex file containing your Evernote notes.
  3. Select the Microsoft Account (Hotmail, Live, or Outlook.com) that you want to use with OneNote.
  4. Click Import. Once the process is complete, you can click to install OneNote on your computer and view your imported notes.
  5. When you start OneNote, it will automatically open your most recent Evernote notes for you. Open your other notebooks manually to see the rest.
