    Was this the WIndows 10 Upgrade from WIndows 7, 8 or 8.1?

    Check now for a C:\Windows.old folder that is created during an Upgrade. If that folder is found, you can

    Show Hidden Files and Folders in Windows 10
    and then follow the steps here:

    • To backup sticky notes in Windows 10/8.1/8/7:
    STEP 1. Type %AppData%\Microsoft\Sticky Notes in the windows.old folder Search box.

    STEP 2. Copy StickyNotes.snt to a safe location.

    • To restore sticky notes:
    STEP 1. Type %AppData%\Microsoft\Sticky Notes in start menu search box or run and press Enter.

    STEP 2. Copy the StickyNotes.snt file from your backup folder and paste it in the folder that opens. Agree to overwrite the old file, or delete it first before copying. If it balks then install and use the

    Take Ownership Shortcut
    on the folder so you can replace the .snt file.

    If you don't have Windows.old folder, do you have a backup image of your old install which we can help you mount to browse into the old files?

    If not then your notes may be lost. In the future use Notepad or Wordpad which can more easily save Files to your Documents, or back up the Sticky Notes file regularly following the above.

    Sticky Notes not show the text

    Hi Nancy,

    The issue may be related to corrupted application files. To troubleshoot this kind of issue, follow the steps below:

    Step 1. Navigate to the App data folder and for that follow the steps mentioned below to help fix the issue.

    a. Press Windows key + X.

    b. Select File Explorer.

    c. Navigate to C:\Users\<your User Name>.

    Once you are inside your User folder you should see a list of Folders like Contacts, Desktop and downloads etc.

    You need to access some files that are hidden to continue troubleshooting,

    Step 2. Try to see Hidden Folders and files and for that you need to follow the steps provided below.

    • Click the View tab.
    • Under Advanced settings, click Show hidden files, folders, and
      drives, and then click OK.

    Step 3. Delete the Sticky notes temp file.

    • Click on the folder.
    • Navigate to Appdata\Roaming\Microsoft\Sticky notes.
    • Delete the file StickyNotes.snt.

    thread
    and proceed with the steps on how to Run the Sticky Notes from the root Folder.

    We look forward to your response.
