I keep bits of information on those little, virtual, yellow pieces of paper called Sticky Notes. Books I want to read, the company color numbers, to do lists, the name of that person I need to contact (but can never remember how to spell their name), and other flotsam of my daily life.
After the latest Windows 10 update, I had only three stickies left. OH NO. I could recreate some of the data, but where was I in that list of updates I had to complete by Friday? When researching the problem, I discovered not only how to recover those missing bits of information, but also where the deleted ones (by mistake) live.
- Type Sticky in the search bar and select Notes list.
- Hover over the date, click Menu (…) and select Open note.
You can also delete old, out-of-date notes to clean up the list. Or, search for a particular bit of information.
