Sticky Notes not working FIX

Starting with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, Microsoft introduced a modern version of Sticky Notes app to replace the classic Sticky Notes program, which we all have used and familiar with.
The new Sticky Notes app ships with a couple of new features that are not part of the classic Sticky Notes program. In addition to the new features, the advantage of Sticky Notes app is that we can easily reset and reinstall the app it doesn’t work as it’s supposed to.

While Windows 10 doesn’t offer a very straight-forward way to reinstall the Sticky Notes app, you can reinstall Sticky Notes in less than five minutes either using the built-in PowerShell or using a third-party tool such as CCleaner. However, resetting the app is straight-forward as it can be done under Settings. If the Sticky Notes app is not opening or not working, you can reset and reinstall it by following my video steps.

Because only Windows 10 Anniversary Update (version 1607) and later versions ship with the app version of Sticky Notes, this method doesn’t work on older versions of Windows 10/8.1/7.

1. Open Start menu, click Settings icon to open Settings app. Click Apps & features.
2. Now, find the Sticky Notes app. Click on its entry and proceed to app’s Advanced options.
3. Click the Reset.
4. Next, tap the Reset button again when you see the confirmation dialog to reset Sticky Notes app.
5. The Sticky Notes app should now reappear or show up in the Start menu.

1. Run Windows PowerShell as an Administrator.
2. To remove the app, use this command: Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.MicrosoftStickyNotes | Remove-AppxPackage
3. To install back Sticky Notes, put in this command: Get-AppxPackage –allusers Microsoft.MicrosoftStickyNotes | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)AppXManifest.xml”}
4. If required, restart your system to apply changes.

♦ In case the above command for reinstalling Sticky Notes does not work for you, use a Microsoft Store instead to get it back.

Hope this resolves all your Sticky Notes issues & problems 🙂
The following information applies to: Windows 10 ONLY

  • 'Get-AppxPackage' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. 🙁
