Love Sticky Notes in Windows, but wish notes synced between computers? Good news: that feature is coming.
Sticky Notes 3 is available to Windows Insiders right now, and and it brings a number of new features. Syncing notes between computers is obviously overdue, so we’re happy to see that. But there are a few other nice things, including a window for “storing” notes. This lets you keep things around without having them clutter your screen.
Here’s Reza Jooyandeh, a Microsoft developer, announcing some changes on Twitter:
Part 5: If you have a lot of notes, your desktop can get a bit crowded! Introducing a home for all your notes: Stick them to your desktop, or tuck them away and find them again easily with search.#WindowsInsiders Sticky Notes 3.0 coming soon to Skip Ahead #Windows pic.twitter.com/iuAr5zwS8X

There are also new colors, including a dark “charcoal” color for fans of dark mode. There’s a few accessibility changes, including support for narrator. Check out the entire thread for more details (via Bleeping Computer). The update should roll out to Windows users
Is Sticky Notes the most important part of Windows 10? No, but a lot of people rely on it, so it’s good to see that Microsoft is paying attention. I’m sure macOS users wish Apple got around to some of these changes a decade ago.
