Where did my Windows 10 Sticky Notes go?

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.

  1. 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You can also delete old, out-of-date notes to clean up the list.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.
