The Sticky Notes application is part of Windows 10, but it is also linked to your Microsoft account. You can access your sticky notes wherever you have a web browser or on an Android phone. IPhone and iPad support is coming soon.
How to see sticky notes on the web
Windows 10 Sticky Notes synchronizes all your notes on the cloud and allows you to create, view and manage notes on the web from any computer. It is not as simple as you think. Internet search does not provide a direct link to a Microsoft site. Instead, you must know exactly where to go.
To access Sticky Notes via the web, you must be logged into the Sticky Notes app with your Microsoft account. To check, click on the gear icon in the upper right corner of the Sticky Notes application on your desktop. If you are not logged in, click on the "Login" button at the top of the window. The Sticky Notes application synchronizes your notes with your Microsoft account so you can access it on the web, on your other Windows 10 PCs and Android phones.
Launch your favorite browser, go to onenote.com/stickynotesand sign in to your Microsoft account.
Once you are logged in, a simple home page of sticky notes will load and a list of synchronized notes will appear in the left pane. By clicking on a note, you display its full contents in the right pane.
If no notes have already been created, click the + button at the top of the page to start a new one.
If you want to color-code your notes, or if you no longer need the note, click the three-point menu icon to display a selection of colors and the delete button.
Windows 10 Sticky Notes syncs with any device you sign in with your Microsoft account. This means that if you buy a new computer, all your notes are automatically synchronized with your desktop.
How to see sticky notes on your Android phone
Microsoft is trying to synchronize your Windows 10 computer with your phone with Microsoft Launcher for Android. Microsoft Launcher is intended for Android users who want a seamless experience with Microsoft applications, such as Office, Outlook and even Sticky Notes, so they can resume their activities on your PC.
After installing Microsoft Launcher, scan directly into your feed and all your notes are synced to your phone for easy access at any time.
The Sticky Notes feature on mobile works the same way as on the web or from your desktop. You can create, manage, and delete notes while on the move – any changes you make are synchronized to all other devices through your Microsoft account.
Although Microsoft Launcher is specific to Android, Microsoft is working on Bring sticky notes to iOS devices via OneNote and are currently in the beta phase. You will not have to wait much longer before you can access your notes from an iPhone.
