How to Change Color of Sticky Notes in Windows 10

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 Sticky Notes version, the colour picker UI has been updated.

This tutorial will show you how to change the color of sticky notes on the desktop of your account in Windows 10.

When you change the color of a sticky note, the color is only applied to that specific sticky note and not to any other existing sticky notes.

When you click/tap on the plus sign at the top left corner of a sticky note to Add Note, the color of that sticky note will be applied to the new sticky note. You will be able to change the color of the new sticky note though.

Here's How:

1. Click/tap on a Sticky Note, and click/tap on the 3 dots menu button. (see screenshots below)

If you don't have any sticky notes on your desktop, then you can add a sticky note by opening the Sticky Notes app from All apps or Windows Ink Workspace.
