Sticky Notes

  • A few weeks ago Windows auto updated my system and some other Microsoft applications such as Sticky Notes. Sticky Notes is an app I've been using since Windows 7. Normally I write down all my notes in OneNote, but for the topic quicky I use the Sticky Notes app.

    That is until the latest update.

    Here are some bugs:

    • Each note opens with a separate button on the Task Bar. Since I prefer not to combine the buttons on the Task Bar, having Sticky Note open with a new button for every note, is annoying and a waste of Task Bar real estate.
    • Notes are missing. Only one or two notes show up on the screen. The missing notes are still there in the Notes List, but I have to reactivate them every time I turn on my computer. Why!?!
    • When I reactivate a note out of the Notes List, it automatically expands to half of my screen. I have to manually resize every note that comes out of the Notes List.

    These are the bugs that I know of. There might be more, but I lost my patience and shut the app down. Microsoft royally screwed Sticky Notes up. The worst part is, it's been weeks since this has happened and I haven't seen any response from Microsoft.
