    why do my sticky notes keep disappearing windows 10


    No the solution to find StickyNotes.snt isn't working. I don't have an AppData file and the StickyNotes file can't be located when searching my system. I created a new note yesterday and when my system rebooted this morning, I lost yesterdays note and a couple that were not deleted after my update on Monday. NICE update!

    :)

    Sticky notes disappeared

    Hello Helen,

    During the update it's normal for the system to close running applications to avoid complications.

    I normally just search for Sticky Notes after a recent installation of the update. Once the program launches , it would then reopen with all the notes I've created before.

    If the above scenario is not the case—usually, when you lose Sticky Notes on your desktop, you’ll be able to find all notes from the Sticky Notes folder via StickyNotes.snt files.

    Now, to recover your missing notes, you may follow the method suggested by Microsoft Barbie in this old

    thread
    .

    Although the thread is for Windows 7, same steps apply to Windows 10.

    Let me know if you need further assistance.

    All the best!
