Sticky Notes recently received a mandatory update for Windows 10. I found myself using OneNote again. I know, but for some reason I can’t find the perfect note-taking app and keep jumping ships. Either way, Sticky Notes is now part of the OneNote mobile app (Android and iOS) and syncs across all devices. Oddly enough, it didn’t work on my Windows 10 computer.
This prompted me to research the problem and find solutions. Faced with the same problem, you no longer need to worry about losing your notes. Here are some helpful solutions to fix sticky notes not working on Windows 10.
Let’s start with simple solutions and then move on to hard ones.

If you are familiar with the Windows 10 settings window, you may already know how it works and how to find it.

This means you don’t need to download any software or anything to get it up and running. fixing problems. First open Windows Settings by pressing Win + I. Then go to Update & Security> Troubleshoot. Now scroll down from the right side to get the “Apps” option from the Windows Store. Click on it and then click the Run the troubleshooter button. After that, you will need to follow the instructions on the screen to do this correctly.
Reset the Sticky Notes application
Resetting Sticky Notes will change it to the default state before first use. This is very similar to installing an application without removing it. Do it:

- Find and click on notes
- Under the name of the application there is a link “Additional parameters”. Open it and click on Reset.
It’s so easy, but remember that it will delete the data stored there. It is therefore advisable to store this information in a different place each time.

These steps have returned your notes, but you can be more careful not to let the problem happen again. When Sticky Notes returns, disable the Insights feature as this will cause the application to fail for many users.
Disable the “Sticky Notes Insights” feature
Insights is a recently introduced feature available in Windows 10 v1607 or later. If you are using the latest version of Windows 10, you will get the same features. With the information, you can create a Cortana reminder based on your notes saved in Sticky Notes. However, many people have claimed that their sync feature is not working due to this feature. While there is no good explanation, the sync feature worked after it was disabled. To do this, open Sticky Notes, click the three-dot button and select List of Notes. Now you will have another window with a settings button. Press here. Then you should get a radio button that says “Activate statistics”. Make sure this option is disabled. When it’s on, press the button to turn it off.
These steps should help you save your notes. If you have a simple solution that’s not on the list, share your ideas. Now get crazy about your notes and fill your desk with your favorite information.
