Somehow my Microsoft OneNote managed to get it's wires twisted somewhere along the line, and though I already had automatic sync chosen in the settings, it would keep showing that small toolbar near the top telling me to sign in / click it to sync the notebook.

This gets pretty annoying after a short time, having to keep clicking it.

Here's a quick & simple fix, just follow these steps

  • Close OneNote
  • Open up the folder at: C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\OneNote\16.0\ using something like Explorer
  • Options: You can either just plain delete the cache folder, or (recommended just to be on the safe side) rename it to cache.BAK
  • Start up OneNote again; the next time you start it, it'll take a minute to re-download your notebook, and it should never ask to sync again Thumbs Up

Be sure and comment to let us know whether this also worked (or not) for you as well!
