    It seems to me that in the new OneNote (2009) that the names are different.
    They are easier to conceptualize. I think that "folders" are now "Section
    Groups".
    When I look in Documents > OneNote notebooks, I see my Section Group names
    listed.

    Is this true? Thanks.

    Sad to see that you jumped in a really oooooold thread (no idea where
    you did dig this out):-(
    "New" would mean ON2010, there was no ON2009, only ON2007. It seems that
    you are having the latter in mind

    I cannot say if there was the naming "folders" in the old 2003 version
    as I only used it a week or so and immediately moved to the 2007 Beta.
    In ON2007 and ON2010 there's

    "Notebooks" and "Sections" as the basics.
    One can create "Section Groups" in addition as a level between.
    And "Section Groups" can be "nested", i.e.: one can create additional
    "Section Groups" inside a "Section Group".
