Microsoft has released an update to Sticky Notes app for Windows 10, taking it to version 1.1.7.
With the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, Microsoft is releasing an all new Sticky Notes experience. Sticky Notes allows you to create and save notes to your Windows machine and customize them in little ways through size and color. In addition to that, Microsoft has added the ability to create Cortana reminders from your notes that will flow with you across your devices and smart entity extraction with Bing.
You will be able to write a phone number and it readies itself for calling; a few jotted-down items become an easy-to-manage checklist; write down a flight number and it will fetch data from Bing to give you the flight status.
New in version 1.1.7:
- A number of users have reported a serious problem where the app does not boot. This has been fixed.
- Additionally, StickyNotes would often crash when entering input using a Korean IME. This has also been addressed.
- If you’ve upgraded from a previous version of Windows, you may have been struck by the new default font size and window sizing in the new experience. Based on your feedback, we’ve taken steps to improve the experience and tweaked both the default font and window size to be smaller.
