Set reminders and more with Sticky Notes

Windows Ink Workspace collaborates with Cortana to make Sticky Notes even more useful. Jot down reminders, doodle away, or write down your next big idea.

Write down a reminder like "Call Mom at 4 PM", select the text in blue, and add a reminder. Cortana will remind you later. Jot down a flight number, then use it to track your itinerary. Sticky Notes can help you keep track of all kinds of things, from email addresses and real addresses to your stocks, to telephone numbers—you name it.
