    Hello,

    Sticky notes may have encountered a system file corruption that caused this. We suggest that you run the

    Windows app troubleshooter
    for this issue. Meanwhile, we also recommend that you reset your Sticky Notes app by following the steps below:

    • Click the Windows icon and click Settings.
    • Click System, and then click Apps & features on the left menu.
    • 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.
    • Close the Settings window and check your Sticky Notes app.

    Let us know the results.

    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.
