  1. I need more background colors for the notes in my sticky notes. Do you? (May 22nd, 2019)


    So far, I have all seven background colors used up for their own purposes, depending on what each note is about. Here are six examples of what I'll use more colors for:


    Red: Visiting Florida, especially Central Florida.

    Orange: Visiting the Midwestern United States, especially Illinois.

    Indigo: Financial goals.

    Brown: Enjoying time outdoors.

    Teal: Favorite beach towns in any state.

    Bronze: My favorite Xbox achievements.


    What can I do to urge Microsoft to add more background color note options to the Sticky Notes app?

    :)

    Sticky Notes color/brightness


    I was wondering why we only have the option for 6 basic bright colors as background for the sticky notes, when it is so easy to just put in a color wheel with brightness options.

    As a designer who is pretty much used to only working in dark grey themed program
    And i love the sticky notes, but having that insanely bright colored sticky note in the corner of my eye (2-3th monitor)
    is a pain, atleast in windows 7 you could use "resource hacker" to change it, but with windows 10 that is not possible.

    Please give the full range of customization for the notes instead of only 6 colors, i guess its made for tablets in mind, but come on its not like you cant use a color wheel and a brightness / alpha sliders on a tablet...

    Hi Gary,

    To better assist you regarding your concern, can you tell us what are you trying to do with your sticky notes? Are you trying to add a reminder to an open sticky note? If so, kindly follow the steps below:

    • Open Sticky Notes
    • Write a note
    • Indicate the time and date you want Cortana to remind you. (ex. October 14, 2014 3:15 AM)
    • After doing so, the text of date and time will be color Blue. Click the
      date and time
      .
    • Click Add Reminder
    • Customize your reminder and then, click Remind.

    By then, Cortana will now save your reminder.

    Let us know how it goes.
