Apps Manually Sync Sticky Notes in Windows 11

  • Staff

This tutorial will show you how to manually sync 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 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.

If you are signed in to Sticky Notes with the correct account and your notes are still not syncing automatically, then you can try forcing a manual sync.


Here's How:

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


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

If only a single note is displayed instead of the Notes list, then click/tap on the Menu (3 dots) button on the note, and click/tap on Notes list.

That's it,
