Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve been teasing out a major update to Sticky Notes in Windows 10. And today we’re excited to announce that we’re rolling out that major update to Windows Insiders who have opted into Skip Ahead.

Sticky Notes launches, user selects their accounts and the notes that were stored in the cloud start downloading.

Sticky Notes 3.0 brings the following amazing new features and capabilities:

  • Sync (& backup) your notes across your Windows devices.
  • If you have a lot of notes, your desktop can get a bit crowded! We are introducing a new home for all your notes. You can choose which notes to stick to your desktop or tuck them away and find them again easily with search.
  • Before all the beautiful sunshine arrived, we channeled our dark energy into a dark themed note: Charcoal Note.
  • Crossing tasks off feel better than deleting them! Now you can style your note with the new formatting bar.
  • You may notice that Sticky Notes is performing a lot faster – that is completely on purpose.
  • We’ve applied so much polish that the app is starting to look like a shiny pony!
  • Drastic improvements on being more inclusive:
    • Using assistive technologies and Narrator.
    • Keyboard navigation.
    • Using mouse, touch, and pen.
    • High Contrast.
