Why Windows 10 Sticky Notes are Awesome
Sticky Notes is one of those tools that you either love or hate. It's easy to spot the people who love sticky notes, too. They tend to have a lot of them all over their desktop screens. Though originally intended to digitally replace physical sticky notes, the Sticky Notes application has evolved into so much more.
With the introduction of the Creators Update for Windows 10, Sticky Notes can now be synced across all Windows 10 devices a person uses. That means someone can create a note on their desktop and find it on their laptop, too.
For those people that have tons of notes, Sticky Notes are now organized in a central hub as well. Before Microsoft overhauled Sticky Notes, if a note was closed, it was lost forever. Sticky Notes are now saved in that central hub until they are manually deleted.
Sticky Notes also extends past the desktop. Anyone can access their notes from their Microsoft 365 account dashboard online or through a mobile app.
Though other services exist, like Evernote, Sticky Notes is a built-in, free option that works within the modern IT space. It is an excellent feature that doesn't require additional cost or training to use.
