Version : √ OneNote desktop
OneNote search in pages, and their title.
Results are sorted by :
– In title
– On page
It also seek through images, as long as this option is activated (in File/Options/Advanced) and even in audio or videos (in File/Options/Audio & Video).
Use quotes to indicate you look for the exact expression within quotes (sequence of words in that order).
& AND operators to refine your query.
Smart combination of both (OR and/or quotes) will yield less numerous, more focused results : that may be especially useful if your notebook is large !
Keyboard shortcuts are :
- Ctrl + E search everywhere,
- Ctrl + F search in current page.

Updated 26/02/2016 : after Marjolein Hoekstra warned me that in my previous example (“OneNote 2016” AND “tips”), the AND operator was totally useless !
Note 17/12/2018 : see this tweet where I illustrate what “exact phrase match” search means :
Exact phrase match : Wrap the word(s) you are searching for between quotes to avoid useless results.
Such an overlooked feature !
