Sticky notes on Windows have been around since Windows Vista. Initially, Sticky notes were not so popular, however, all of this changed when users discovered how useful those small yellow virtual boxes could be. Microsoft reported that there were eight million monthly Sticky Notes users as of April 2016.
Microsoft has been constantly updating Sticky Notes for Windows. They first built a totally new version of Sticky Notes on the Universal Windows Platform, this version was introduced in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. After this, Microsoft continued rolling out updates which added a bunch of features to the app.
Today, Microsoft started testing a major update for the Sticky Notes app on Windows 10. First reported by Windows Central, Skip ahead ring users running Windows 10 build 18855 or newer can now download the new version 3.6 of the app. The new update adds support for image attachments, multi-desktop support and more. Microsoft also introduced some new shortcuts to ease users workload on Sticky notes.
Full Changelog :
- Add images to your Sticky Notes. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words.
- Improved speed and added icons to the context menu when selecting text.
- Many more bug fixes and improvements.
- Multi-desktop support is finally here. Stick your notes wherever your work takes you.
- Select specific notes with the taskbar or with Alt + Tab and Win + Tab. But do not worry, Ctrl + Tab still is there for you to only switch between your Sticky Notes.
You can download the new app right now if you’re a Skip Ahead user with Windows 10 build 18855 or newer installed on your PC. Microsoft has already listed the apps shipping with the Windows 10 19H1 update, so it could be a while before this update is available for the general public.
