Sticky Notes has got a new color picker

A new update to the built-in Sticky Notes app in Windows 10 has landed for the Fast Ring. The updated app features a refined user interface with a fancy color picker and a font size slider.

Sticky Notes is a Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app which debuted in Windows 10 Anniversary Update and comes with a number of features which the classic desktop app didn't have. With Windows 10 Anniversary Update, Microsoft discontinued the classic Desktop app "Sticky Notes". Now, its place is taken by a new app with the same name. The new app lets you create Cortana reminders from your notes. You can type a phone number and have it recognize it, and recognize URLs too which you can open in Edge. You can create check lists and use it with Windows Ink.

The updated Sticky Notes is now available to Insiders in the Fast Ring. The new app version is version

The app features a new color picker. It appears above the note when you click on the menu button with dots.

For many users, the classic Desktop app is the more preferable option. It works faster, starts faster and has no Cortana integration.

That's it.
