    How to Enable or Disable Insights on Sticky Notes in Windows 10

    information   Information
    Sticky Notes allow you to create and save notes to the desktop of your Windows 10 PC and customize them in little ways through size and color.

    Starting with Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14328, the Windows Ink Workspace feature was added that brings together all the ink-powered features and apps on your PC in one curated and easy-to-access UX canvas. Windows Ink puts the power of Windows in the tip of your pen, enabling you to write on your device as you do on paper, creating sticky notes, drawing on a whiteboard, and easily sharing your analog thoughts in the digital world.

    Starting with Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14352, Sticky Notes got smarter with the addition of the insights feature. Insights give you the ability to create Cortana reminders from your notes that will flow with you across your Cortana enabled devices. You can also ink or type a phone number and it readies itself for calling; write an email address and launch directly to email, write a URL and launch into Microsoft Edge right from the Note. A few jotted-down bulleted items become an easy-to-manage checklist.

    Starting with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, smart Sticky Notes help you remember common tasks like reminding you of flight times or offering directions using Maps. Sticky Notes will help users realize the power of their pen and turn their handwriting into a smart digital tool without them having to think twice.

    This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable insights on Sticky Notes for your account in Windows 10.

    I just gave it a shot, not bad!
    Much easier then doing it verbally with Cortana(she often gets the wrong word or if you are not fast enough breaks off)

    A test:
