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 can sign in to Sticky Notes to sync your notes to the cloud so that you can see the same notes on the web and across apps and your favorite devices. To see your sticky notes on your favorite devices on the web, you'll need all your devices signed in to the same Microsoft account.

You can create a sticky note in different ways on different devices to suit your style and situation.
