OneNote application will not run error: 0x80070005 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,
    I am unable to run Microsoft One note on my windows 10 OS. 
    Here is what I get:

    Something went wrong and we can't do what you asked. we're sorry 
    error: 0x80070005

    My first thought was to uninstall it, When I go into apps and features and find the One note app the option to uninstall is grayed out. 

    What steps do I need to take?

  • Normally OneNote gives an uninstall option so guess that is due to the error. Try from a PowerShell prompt (search start for power open Windows PowerShell) copy and paste;

    Get-AppxPackage -Name Microsoft.Office.OneNote | Remove-AppxPackage -Verbose

    Then reboot for fun, find OneNote in the Store reinstall and try again.

  • I'm not able to paste into the power shell and don't know how to recreate the symbol of the straight line between OneNote and Remove.  Please help!

  • Get-AppxPackage -Name Microsoft.Office.OneNote | Remove-AppxPackage -Verbose
    Does that help can you copy that? The straight line is the pipe is PowerShell to pipe the output from one command to the next command. So search pipe symbol for you keyboard language

  • Just type the first command in the Windows Powershell and you should be good to go!😉

    Get-AppxPackage -Name Microsoft.Office.OneNote
