How do I minimize sticky notes

Where are my sticky notes?

Here are some things to try if your sticky notes suddenly disappear or don't display properly.

My notes associated with my account are not displayed

Sometimes your notes won't show up because you're currently signed out of Sticky Notes, using a new computer that isn't signed in to Sticky Notes, or because you've signed in to a different account that you previously synced Notes with.

Try signing in to your Sticky Notes (click or tap in the list of notes in the top right corner Settings # a0 Log In).

If you're signed in to the wrong account, sign out, and then sign in with a different account to find your notes.
