    Sticky Notes App stopped working on Windows 10


    Sticky Notes worked fine in the past, but at some point it stopped working. Initially when it stopped working, the app would show in the task bar but the notes would not display anywhere. I could see them in the notes list, but they would not show up on the desktop. I've recently updated Windows 10 to 1903, and now StickyNotes just crashes on startup. It displays "Loading Sticky Notes..." briefly and then disappears.


    I've tried all the suggestions (reset, uninstall/reinstall, re-register, troubleshooter, etc.). I've been scoured the registry and removed all StickyNotes entries. Nothing has worked. Is there any way to get this simple app working??

    :)

    Sticky Notes is one of the default programs for Windows 10. Type Sticky Notes in the search box, then press enter. If you are encountering an error opening Sticky Notes, we recommend resetting the application. Follow the steps below:

    • Open Settings.
    • Click Apps, then Apps & features in the left pane.
    • Locate Sticky Notes, then click Advanced options.
