    can i restore sticky notes after reseting the app


    I have a windows 10 (Asus laptop).

    some background: I've been having some problems with the windows store and the windows apps (camera, sticky notes, calendar...); none of them were opening and i think it was because i stopped the windows store from updating itself (there had been an update for the store so i clicked on it) but i didn't let it finish, i cancelled it halfway through because i wanted to shut down the laptop and something must have gone wrong somewhere i guess. I'm not sure if this was the actual cause of the problem but all i know is that the next day when i turned on my laptop, the sticky notes app didn't start up and then eventually i realized that the problem was with the STORE, NOT the sticky notes app, like i had first thought.

    after 5 days of searching through the internet for solutions and trying them out, i finally fixed the problem today (even though i'm not sure how....something about re-registering the store and all the apps using the powershell...even though i'm sure I've tried something like that one time during those 5 days and it didn't work but anyway).

    The point i'm trying to get at is that one of the things that i came across as "solutions" to this problem was to go to settings>apps then search for the windows store and "reset" it. Then I did that to the sticky notes app too at one point..because for some reason i thought the problem was with the sticky notes app. then i realized that NONE of the other windows apps were opening either. so i felt like a FOOL. i even clicked on "terminate" sticky notes...just out of...desperation?? I wasn't sure what i was doing...i knew i shouldn't have - i dont know why i did it. but yeah.

    so my question is, if i reset the sticky notes app, is there Any way of restoring it? i had like 6 sticky notes but now theyre all gone. my gut tells me if i wanna get them back i'm probably gonna have to do a restore thing..for the whole computer...i hope not though. help me please

    this was way longer than needed im sorry

    P.S. there are no previous versions of the "StickyNotes.snt" file.

    • Click on Sticky Notes on the list found on your right menu, click
      Advanced options link, and click the Reset button.
    • Click the Reset button again when you see the confirmation dialog to reset Sticky Notes app.

    Hi Idalee,

    Yes, there is a possibility that the recent update may have disabled or corrupted the apps. For us to isolate this problem, we suggest repairing or resetting Sticky Notes on your PC. Follow these steps:

    • Open Settings and click Apps.
    • On the Apps & features tab, locate the name of the missing app.
    • Click the app and select Advanced options, then click Repair.
    • If the Repair option is not available or does not resolve the issue, you may also try the
      Reset option. However, it's more likely that you will lose any app data that was saved.
    • Once the repair or reset is completed, Sticky Notes should now reappear in the app list.
    • You may now pin it to the Start Menu.

    Update us with the outcome.
