How to sync Sticky Notes between Windows 10 Domain PCs

Our Windows 7 users for years have ejnoyed the fact that sticky notes followed them from computer to computer.  There was a notes.snt file in their local profle that we copied to a network share on logoff, and then at logon we copied back to the local profile.  This meant their notes were backed up on a dfs share in our infrastructure, and the file came back to them.

This script still runs but in Windows 10 it does not look at this file and Sticky notes are blank.  How can I accomplish the same thing, quickly and easily for our users?  I found a thread regarding copying a file called plum.sqlite from AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftStickyNotes_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState but after trying this, it no longer works (tested in Windows 10 1809 and 1903).  I think the articles that were written for this may have worked on earlier Windows 10 builds.

As we roll out Windows 10 upgrades users are being instructed to take a screen shot of their desktop or copy and paste all of their notes into a word or email document.  The issue is on the new Windows 10 computers, they surely can paste all of that information in and set the notes up the way they had it, but if they move to another workstation it no longer follows like we had it setup for Windows 7.

We have about 180 people that would be forever in your thanks if someone here can help us solve this issue!  We are trying to be off of Windows 7 by its EOL date of January 14th 2020.

Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.


I understand that you want to sync Sticky Notes between computers connected to a Domain network. Since you have already tried copying the plum.sqlite file, I suggest you to copy all the files inside the LocalState folder and then paste it inside the LocalState folder in another computer and check.


If the issue persists, since the computers are connected to a domain network, I suggest you to post your query in TechNet forums, where we have support professionals who are well equipped with the knowledge on Domain computers to help you with the appropriate details.
