Apps Enable or Disable Insights for Sticky Notes in Windows 11

  • Staff

This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable insights for 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.

If you type notes that contain a date, time, phone number, or address, Insights (when turned on) will offer ways to interact with the note, such as by adding a reminder to your Outlook calendar if you type a time, showing a map if you type an address, or displaying a web page in a browser if you type a web address.


EXAMPLE: Insights for URL link in sticky note


Here's How:

1 Open the Sticky Notes app. (see screenshot below)


2 Click/tap on the Settings (gear) button in Sticky Notes. (see screenshot below)


3 Turn On or Off (default) Enable insights for what you want. (see screenshot below)


That's it,
Shawn Brink
