This tutorial will show you how to sign in or sign out 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.

On Windows 10 and Windows 11, you don’t need to be signed in to your Microsoft account to start using Sticky Notes. Just open Sticky Notes and starting jotting away. Sticky Notes will open where you left them.

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.
