UPDATE: Microsoft has removed this feature for reasons best known to them. However, there is a built-in system-level font size changer in Windows 10 which you can use to change the font size in Sticky Notes. Refer to our how to change the text size in Windows 10 guide for directions.
The sticky Notes program was first offered with Windows Vista. Since then, the Sticky Notes program has been part of every version of the Windows operating system, including the latest Windows 10.
With Windows 10 Anniversary Update (1607), Microsoft replaced the classic desktop Sticky Notes program with the Sticky Notes app.
Although the built-in Sticky Notes is fairly popular among PC users, Microsoft never offered easy ways to change the default font, font size, and other ways to customize notes. We could use keyboard shortcuts to change the font size and customize notes in the classic Sticky Notes program, but all these keyboard shortcuts do not work with the modern Sticky Notes app in Windows 10 Anniversary Update and above versions.
It seems that Microsoft has listened to feedback and decided to offer a few settings to customize notes in Sticky Notes. Microsoft has updated the Sticky Notes app to add more features and options to the app.
The Sticky Notes app now supports adjusting the default font size used in Sticky Notes app. Starting with Sticky Notes version number 22.214.171.124, you can increase or reduce the font size with ease without using keyboard shortcuts. In addition to the font size changer, version 126.96.36.199 also brings in a new color picker.
You must be running Windows 10 build 17083 or later to get version 188.8.131.52 of Sticky Notes.
