    Sticky Notes update nag


    At least once a day I get the pic below requesting a sticky note update. I click 'ok' and nothing happens. This has been going on for a while. I find SN really handy and have it permanently open on the desktop - I'd like to either update the thing or turn off the nag.

    Have you tried actually closing the app and relaunching it?

    Turned out that in my keenness to turn off telemetry etc with Shut Up Ten, I'd inadvertently disabled 'update apps'. I put that item back to default 'on' and when today's SN update nag appeared, I clicked OK and Sticky Notes closed and re-opened, so it seems fixed.

The major update has replaced the older version of Sticky Notes with a new one that incorporates interacting with Cortana (which I could care less about). However the size of each note is huge (about 4" x 4" on my monitor) and won't reduce any...
