What you need to know
- Sticky Notes 3.6 is now out of preview and available for everyone.
- The update lets you add images to your notes.
- Many bug fixes are included, as well as the ability to use Sticky Notes on multiple desktops.
After around two months in testing with Windows Insiders, the latest version of Microsoft's Sticky Notes app is now available for everyone. Coming in at version 3.6, the update brings a bunch of bug fixes, along with the ability to add images to your notes.
Additionally, you can now stick your notes to multiple desktops if you find yourself swapping between workspaces on your PC frequently. Here's a full rundown from the release notes:
- 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.
Sticky Notes is one of those handy apps in Microsoft's repertoire that doesn't receive a lot of attention, but it has gained a ton of new functionality over the past year. The app received a full overhaul last year, which was quickly followed up with the addition of dark mode and faster syncing.
If you want to give the update a shot for yourself, you can grab Sticky Notes version 3.6 from the Microsoft Store now.
