Sticky Notes for Windows 10 now lets you make a new note from the taskbar

Microsoft updated its Sticky Notes app for Windows 10, which is an important part of the Windows Ink experience that debuted with the Anniversary Update. If you're not familiar with it, the app basically allows you to create digital Post-it notes, but with Windows Ink, you can now use Cortana to create reminders and more.

Today's update adds a number of new features. For example, you'll be able to create new notes via the jump list in the taskbar. Here's the full changelog:

  • We like to 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.
  • We've changed our font from Segoi UI Emoji to Segoe UI for a few different reasons, the most important being that we now support ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. An important change, we think you'll agree.
  • Our text was doing a little dance when you tried to resize your notes. It's taken its dancing shoes off now and will stay still as you resize.
  • We've made a few little UI adjustments to the upgrade prompt, such as removing the Later button. You'll now find a neat little X in its place.
  • Finally, we made a few adjustments so that the app will be speedier at launch. Enjoy!

It's important to note that the app that got updated is the UWP one, and not the desktop app that users of older versions of Windows are familiar with. This is the one that was developed with Windows Ink in mind.

One feature that many will find exciting is the support for kaomoji, so now, you can express indifference in your notes with ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ or the fact that you're so angry that you want to flip over a table with (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻. You can download Sticky Notes from the Windows Store here.
