Over the year, we have been charting the progress of Sticky Notes, a Microsoft service that has evolved rapidly. Starting as something of a gimmick, Sticky Notes is not a hugely functional tool thanks to numerous updates in 2018. Now, Microsoft is planning its biggest transformation of the app yet.
Microsoft has been increasing functionality of Sticky Notes to enhance quick task management tools for users. A new leaked feature suggests Microsoft will turn the app into a one-button only service.
Microsoft watcher Ajith took to Twitter to reveal Sticky Notes will soon include an Always On Top button. With this button, users will be able to stick notes onto the top of documents to keep them visible at all times.
Perhaps more importantly is that Sticky Notes will soon be able to support images. The ability to add images will give users more tools for creating notes for later tasks.

Users can sync notes across all devices through their Microsoft Account. As for the experience, users are getting the same feature set that’s available on Sticky Notes for Windows 10.
Recently the company rolled out an update on Windows 10 to bring Sticky Notes to version 3.0. Last month, we reported on Microsoft’s efforts to bring Sticky Notes to iOS and Android. Coming to those platforms soon, the service is once again integrated into OneNote.
Increasingly, the app is becoming an important part of Windows 10 and across mobile devices. We want to see Microsoft add more features as we move into 2019.
