Format Background and Page Color 

The Format Background feature in OneNote can be useful for customizing the appearance of your notes and making them more visually appealing. You can change the background color of your notes or add ruled lines or grid lines to your page to help guide your ink. This can help you to organize your notes more effectively, make them easier to read, and add personality.
