Send to OneNote button is missing

Problem Description:
When you work in Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Office OneNote 2007 buttons or OneNote 2010 buttons may be missing as follows: 

• When you work in an e-mail item, the Send to OneNote button is missing. 
• When you work in a calendar item or in a task item, the Notes about This Item or the Linked Meeting Notes button is missing. 

This issue may occur when the OneNote add-in is disabled in Outlook or if the Outlook Integration has not been installed.

For Windows Vista or Windows 7

2.  Right-click on the version of Office or OneNote that is installed, and then click Change.

5.  Expand Send to OneNote Add-ins. 
6.  If there is an X next to Outlook Integration, click on the X, and then click Run from My Computer. 
7.  Click Continue. 

To enable the OneNote add-in in Outlook, follow these steps.

For Outlook 2010
1.  On the File menu, click Options. 
2.  Click Add-ins.

  1. Good AM: I hope all is well withe everyone - My work computer has MSO 2010 (my personal copy) with XP OS: I tried to follow the instructions above but I did not come across Step 3. Instead, I selected "Disabled Items" and found it there. I clicked to enable, restarted Outlook, didn't work. rebooted computer, still did not work. Please advise. Thank you

  2. I was having the same problem where the OneNote button would disappear from the Outlook 2013 menu bar. It would work if you would to run Outlook in administrator mode, but then your rapid search would get disabled. Anyhow, to fix the issue I went to the registry key [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\Outlook\Addins\OneNote.OutlookAddin] and changed the LoadBehaviour value from 2 to 3. This bugged me for a while and I finally decided to invest some time to figure it out. I hope it works for all of you.
