Sticky Notes update for Windows 10 disappoints users

Microsoft just issued a new update for its Sticky Notes app for Windows 10. The update, however, is available to Windows Insiders on the Fast Ring only, and it brought a couple of improvements and bug fixes. It also updates the Sticky Notes version to 1.1.24.0.

According to Donovan Lange, the Engineering Manager for Sticky Notes, the updated version of Sticky Notes introduced a smaller minimum window size, so if you don’t have much text in your notes, you can resize it to take less space on your display. Additionally, the update also brings better boot performance, and some other bug fixes.

Although this update is for now only available to Insiders on the Fast Ring running the Redstone 2 build 14905, it probably won’t be released to regular users as a part of the next major update for Windows 10. Microsoft is probably just testing the update in Windows 10 Preview, until it pushes it to regular users, So, expect this update for Sticky Notes to land on every Windows 10 computer in the near future.

Users are not satisfied with the revamped version of Sticky Notes in Windows 10. A lot of people reported various issues with the app, and Sticky Notes’ rating in the Windows Store is pretty low. That should be an alert for Microsoft to release more updates like this one, and try to improve the app as much as possible.
