Microsoft Releases Sticky Notes Update

Sticky Notes users on Windows 10 can now create notes directly from the taskbar, while Microsoft has added a new font to the app.


has rolled out a new update for its application recently. Thanks to this release, the app gets a number of new, useful, features. As is usual with this service, there is no consistent version number because it changes across devices.

However, users will now be able to create a new Sticky Notes note directly in the taskbar on a Windows 10 PC.

This is possible because the app now integrates into the Windows 10 jump list. Other new improvements include a new font. Sticky Notes now users the Segoe UI font whereas it previously used the Segoe UI Emoji font.

This is a minor change, but it means users can type Kaomokis. Elsewhere, the company has made fixes to several bugs. For example, a text issue has been solved with this update.

Below is the full Sticky Notes update:

  • We like to make it as easy as possible for you to capture all your notes, big or small, so we've added the ability to create a new note straight from the jump list.
  • We've changed our font from Segoe UI Emoji to Segoe UI for a few different reasons, the most important being that we now support kaomojis. An important change, we think you'll agree.
  • Our text was doing a little dance when you tried to resize your notes. It's taken its dancing shoes off now and will stay still as you resize.
  • We've made a few little UI adjustments to the upgrade prompt, such as removing the Later button. You'll now find a neat little X in its place.
  • Finally, we made a few adjustments so that the app will be speedier at launch. Enjoy!
