This tutorial will show you how to change the color of sticky notes for your account in Windows 10 and Windows 11.

The Microsoft Sticky Notes app is the simple way to quickly save something for later, so you can stay in the flow. With Sticky Notes, you can create notes, type, ink or add a picture, add text formatting, stick them to the desktop, move them around there freely, close them to the Notes list, and sync them across devices and apps like OneNote Mobile, Microsoft Launcher for Android, and Outlook for Windows.

You select to have your sticky notes use a Light, Dark, or Use my Windows mode color mode. The color mode changes the background and font colors of the note and the note list to either light or dark, but not the note header.

You can also select a color from the note header you want for each sticky note.

If you are signed in to Sticky Notes with your Microsoft account, the color change will sync across your devices and on the web.
