Transferring Stickynotes from Windows 7 Version to Windows 10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am here because in my original post at answers.microsoft.com, I was told "Due to the complexity of your concern, we suggest that you post this at Technet forum".

    The original post can be found here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-files/transfer-stickynotesnt-to-windows-10-education/dfb28e6c-b847-404b-991d-b1f806dce5e2?tm=1508702281092&rtAction=1508809576079&auth=1

    Essentially I had a computer that ran the windows 7 version of stickynotes. That computer needed to be sent in for repairs so I backed up my StickyNote.snt file to a flashdrive. I now have a computer running Windows 10 Education and I need to transfer the sticky notes over but the new save file for windows 10 sticky notes plum.sqlite is not comptible with the StickyNotes.snt file and so I cannot get the old notes to open on the new computer. 

    There are two possible resolutions for this that I can see:

    1) I need to convert the .snt file to the .sqlite file and use that

    or 2) I need to download/run the windows 7 version of stickynotes on windows 10.

    I personally do not see how this problem is so complex that neither the representative at answers.microsoft.com nor the person I spoke to over the phone could help me, but I really need my information back so whatever needs to be done I will do, just tell me how.

    Thank you

  • Hi,

    Sticky Notes is now a modern app, no more classic Win32 app. But you can try copying StikyNot.exe and the corresponding .mui file from your old installation (Windows.old) or from a Windows 1511 ISO.

    Get back Classic Sticky Notes After Installing Windows 10 Anniversary Update:
