[dba-Tech] Office 365's version of OneNote is horrid

I don't use OneNote, but I do run Office 365. When I open OneNote, I still
have an Open option on the File tab that lets be browse my local system's
folders. You don't see that?

I recently subscribed to Office 365 for a year, and while I like most of it,
I despise the changes made to OneNote. I have trying without success to open
existing notebooks stored on an external drive. I cannot find the command to
do this. Double-clicking on said files in Explorer doesn't work, and
apparently the File Open command has vanished. I'm thinking that I have no
choice but to re-install Office 2007, which knows how to find files.
Please advise, if you know how to perform this simple task, inform me,
because it is driving me nuts that I cannot get to my previous files.
Frankly, i would love to have a discussion with the designers of Outlook
365 to learn what they were thinking when they omitted obvious and essential
commands -- or worse, maybe they exist but are so well-hidden that a OneNote
expert cannot find them. Short of re-installing an old version of Office, I
haven't thought my way out of this dilemma. If you have any suggestions I
would be grateful.
