    How Do I Increase Font Size in Sticky Notes?


    Looks like you're not able to increase the font size of sticky notes in Win 10 any more. Is there a regesitry tweak to bring that feature back?

    Right click on the "Stickies" icon in your task bar, select "Options" and then select "Appearance". You should be able to set the default font/size etc.

    Are you running home or pro W10 ? Maybe there is a difference there ? Let me know and I'll install on my home system to see what happens there. Stickies is not installed on that system.

    I tried a how to article on how to change the font and it's size but failed miserably, It was a registry change but did not use the font I wanted and actually made it harder to read and trying to change it back to what it was did not work.

    I don't think I ever looked at that W10 app. I've used this program for years and always liked it functionality. Sorry about that.
