Top 8 Ways to Fix Sticky Notes Not Working on Windows 10

3. Start troubleshooting

Microsoft equips Windows 10 with a troubleshooting tool to check for irregularities with embedded Windows applications. Open the settings and look for Troubleshooting. If the Find and Troubleshoot Microsoft Store Apps option appears in the drop-down list, select it.

Follow the on-screen instructions to see if the problem with Sticky Notes does not work on Windows 10 is resolved or not.

4. Verifying the Antivirus and Malware

Malware and hacking incidents are not new. Your computer could have been affected as easily. Launch the antivirus software and perform a full scan immediately. If you do not have one installed, we recommend that you get one immediately.

Otherwise, download Malwarebytes and run it. Malware is not the same as a virus, hence two separate software. The free version is sufficient, but I recommend the paid version.

5. Disable the Insights feature

The Insights feature allows users to create reminders in Sticky Notes that work with Cortana. This means that the note on all Windows devices will be recalled. Open Sticky Notes and click Settings.

Disable Insights and restart Sticky Notes to check its operation and the use of all its features.

If you can not even open Sticky Notes, go to the next step for now, but do not forget to turn it off once it has started working. You can use Microsoft To-Do to set reminders. This application is also available on most platforms.

6. Reset or reinstall

Open the settings again and click apps.

Try the Reset option first. As the Windows Note, the application will be reinstalled, but your documents will not be affected. If the reset does not work, uninstall Sticky Notes. Then download and reinstall it from the Windows Store.

7. Re-save sticky notes

Microsoft recommends that users re-register Windows applications if they do not work as expected. To do this, open Command Prompt or PowerShell with Administrator rights and run the command below.

 PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Command "& {$manifest = (Get-AppxPackage *MicrosoftStickyNotes*).InstallLocation + 'AppxManifest.xml' ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest}"

Right-click anywhere on the CMD screen to paste the copied command and press Enter. No need to type it. Restart your computer and check if Sticky Notes works or not.

8. Restore to the previous point

I really hope that this will not happen in this situation. In addition, you should do it only if sticky notes are really important. Indeed, restoring your computer to the previous save point may delete some files and some settings. So, if you plan to use this solution, I strongly recommend that you back up important data and files.

If you're sure Sticky Notes worked before, you can try to restore your computer at a previous time. Windows 10 automatically backs up frequently. Open Control Panel, search for Recovery and open it.

Just choose a restore point and follow the instructions on the screen. If you are using a laptop, connect it to a power outlet as the process will take some time. You do not want your computer to turn off unexpectedly during the process.

Paste it

Sticky Notes is much more usable now, thanks to the much needed update that it has received recently. It's so much easier to share links and text between devices. If you have found another way to solve this problem, share it with us in the comments below.
