    I used to be able to change the fonts and size of the sticky notes. Ever since installing Windows 10 anniversary update, the sticky notes open extremely large and so is the font. The only option I can change is the sticky note color.

    you're right, I'm guessing the next update should add that back

    I just tried the new sticky notes.. very sluggish if you keep the "insights" function active.
    Also, the left margin is too big, takes too much space. The notes were useful because they were compact, no need to occupy screen with blank space.
    The font is ugly.

    There is the old shortcut to increase/decrease font size:
    Ctrl+shift+> bigger
    Ctrl+shift+< smaller

    BUT.. it crashes. One trick I found is that I open a blank note, then I first change the font size using the shortcut, then type or paste in stuff. this way it works.

    Real pity because I use sticky notes as a permanent ToDo list on my desktop. The only function I would have liked is automatic backup in OneDrive and ability to see the same note on different computers when I login with my account.

    In short: if something works fine THERE IS NO NEED TO CHANGE IT. Microsoft, what were you thinking?

    Microsoft has to fix this issue

    there was a windows update which i installed and when its done my sticky notes font and its own size has become insane the it almost covers whole screen the font size become 14 which is bizarre

    Dear microsoft developers

    it should not become a CINEMA SCREEN

    Just a workaround for those still having issues. I just came across this now

    I went into the windows.old\system32\ folder and copied the stickynot.exe from there to the windows\system32 folder

    Just make a backup of the current file there before replacing with this one just in case

    I did this and can now use the shortcuts for resizing the font and pasting from other apps keeps the font formatting from the other app

    Hi,
    Use CTRL and + buttons to change the font size in a new sticky note.
    Do not try to change the font size in an existing sticky note by using this method. Then it gets stuck. This works when you open a new sticky note and then, first enter CTRL and +, the start writing on it. then the small fonts appear...
    It works!!!
