  1. Thank you for this great tip. I have always used sticky notes from time to time. I get out of the habit and then go for awhile not using notes. I have WIN 11 now. and have clicked on the s note icon to open on the screen. One thing, after I create a note and then close my computer it doesn’t load on my screen as it always has. Is there a setting I’m missing??? Thanks.
