  1. Sticky Note Missing

    After the latest update, I find just one of my sticky notes is missing. It so happens to be the largest most important one. The others are there ok.

    I navigated to the Sticky Notes file and right clicked it to restore but was told there was nothing available.

    I opened the file in notepad and as far as I can see it relates to very old notes I no longer use

    Help please!

  2. Win 10 v1709 update and missing Sticky Notes


    There is a possibility that the Sticky Notes were unexpectedly deleted on your desktop due to some errors while the update is being installed. For us to provide an accurate solution, we would need to know which build and edition of Windows 10 is currently
    installed on your PC.

    For initial troubleshooting, we suggest recovering the lost Sticky Notes by following these steps:

    • Open the File Explorer.
    • Type %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Sticky Notes\StickyNotes.snt in the address bar and then hit the Enter key.
    • Look for StickyNotes.snt file and then open it with Notepad or Microsoft Word.
    • Look for the missing notes in .snt file, copy and paste it into a new Sticky Notes.

    To avoid issues with missing Sticky Notes, it will be best to back them up. You can follow the steps provided by
    Jennifer Bri in this thread. It serves as a guide on how to back up and restore
    Sticky notes in Windows 10.

    We'll be waiting for your reply.

    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.
