  • Hi,

    The Sticky Note is built-in trusted store app in Windows 10, please check if you can find the app in this shell folder:

    Open Run box and type: Explorer Shell:AppsFolder 

    Then the all apps will appear in this folder, locate Sticky Notes, and right Click to choose Pin to Start.

  • I too have just experienced this - I was using the Legacy (Win7) version of sticky notes and then it seems something(maybe a Windows Update?) uninstalled it. Event logs suggest an automatic install of Sticky notes, so I presume I was upgraded automatically, and the legacy version removed. Unfortunately I lost the content of my notes which is disappointing. I've checked the stickynotes.snt found in "AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Sticky Notes" but this file does not contain my missing notes.
