Last year, Microsoft released an update to Sticky notes (version 3.0). The tech giant introduced various features in that update including an ‘always on top’ option, Microsoft Launcher support and a web client.

Recently, Microsoft launched a new major update to enhance the existing capabilities of the app. The update bumps the current version to 3.6 and brings Image and Multi-Desktop Support.

In other words, the update comes with support for multiple desktops and image embedding. Currently, only the users running the Windows 10 Insider build 18855 and higher can install the update.

Photo embedding support

The photo embedding feature aims to target those Windows users who are interested in importing screenshotsmind-maps and similar important information.
Furthermore, users need to navigate to the Sticky Notes toolbar and right click on the image icon. They will now be able to select the image in Windows Explorer.

Multi-Desktop support

You might not have heard about the multiple desktop feature of Windows 10. If you have multiple desktops. Sticky Notes now reminds you about incomplete tasks by sharing notes across multiple desktops.

In order to use the feature, you need to head towards the Task View to select the note and check the show on all desktops option.

Secondly, the Sticky notes app now supports various hotkeys so that the users can switch to their notes. While using a different application, you can either use Win + Tab or Alt + Tab keys to switch to a specific note.

The multi-desktop support now allows the users to efficiently organize their activities. While toggling between different desktops, they can use the feature to separate personal and work applications.

Microsoft has introduced a couple of other improvements and fixes. Users can enjoy a smoother experience as a result. You will now find icons in the context menu and the text selection is now a lot faster. 

Most of the Windows users find the Sticky Notes to be a pretty useful application. It seems like it will take some time until the update goes live to the Windows 10 users.
