How to Manually Sync Sticky Notes on Windows 10 PC


The Sticky Notes app is a preinstalled UWP (Universal Windows Platform) app in Windows 10.

With Sticky Notes, you can create notes, type, ink or add a picture, add text formatting, stick them to the desktop, move them around there freely, close them to the Notes list, and sync them across devices and apps like OneNote Mobile, Microsoft Launcher for Android, and Outlook for Windows.

Starting with the Windows 10 May 2019 Update, you can sync and backup notes across your phone, laptop and desktop - all your devices.

Now, you can also jot down a note on your PC and look it up on your phone, using applications such as Microsoft Launcher, Microsoft OneNote for Android and Microsoft OneNote for iPhone.

The Sticky Notes app will by default automatically sync across all your devices that you are signed in to with the same Microsoft account.
