Create your first page

Creating a page
In this Article

Every page you create in Notion is a fresh canvas where you can add whatever content you want. Follow these steps to create your first one 📄

There are a few ways to add a new page in Notion.

  • Click 📝 at the top of your left sidebar.

  • If you’re on the desktop app, use the shortcut cmd/ctrl + N.

  • If you’re on mobile, tap 📝 at the bottom of your screen.

Once your new page opens, you can give your page a title and start jotting down your thoughts.

Need some inspiration or structure? On desktop or web, select any of the options at the bottom of the page to get started. You can import from an app or file, use a template, create a table, and more — select an option you like, and your page will be formatted accordingly!

As you write, highlight any text on your page to bring up a menu of options. You can change the color or style of your text, add a comment or hyperlink, and more. Learn more about writing and editing basics here →

The / command will quickly become your best friend in Notion.

  • Typing / brings up a comprehensive menu of block types - all of your content options. Experiment with different block types - you'll find your own personal favorite combinations!

  • Add any type of block by typing / and scrolling to the one you want or typing its name. For instance, /h1 creates a large heading, and /todo creates a checkbox.
