Windows 10’s Sticky Notes app is today receiving a new update in Microsoft Store (formerly known as Windows Store) with several new changes, including improved colour picker. The updated version 188.8.131.52 is rolling out to those users who are in Windows Insider’s Fast Ring program.
With today’s update, Microsoft is allowing you to change the colour of notes easily as the layout has been changed, along with improved settings and app icon. Microsoft is also fixing some bugs and improving the overall performance of the application.
Microsoft’s Sticky Notes app is useful for many users, as it allows users to create notes directly from the taskbar. You can run Sticky Notes app from the taskbar icon and with Add Note button, you can create a note. This “make it as easy as possible for you to capture all your notes, big or small, so we’ve added the ability to create a new note straight from the jump list,” the company explained the app’s feature in a changelog published last year.
It’s also worth noting you can now join Sticky Notes App Preview Program. Microsoft recently announced the Windows App Preview Program with the aim to improve the apps by allowing all Insiders to try out new features without installing the unfinished system updates.
With the Windows App Preview Program, Microsoft will make it easier for everyone to beta test apps, this means Windows Insider rolled in any ring can opt-in to preview new version of the applications. “We heard feedback from Windows Insiders that having to opt-in to Skip Ahead to receive the latest app updates wasn’t ideal,” said Dona Sarkar in a blog post.
Sticky Notes app seems faster after installing this update and it also comes with small fixes. You can grab the new updated version of Sticky Notes from the Microsoft Store.
