Fixed: The Sticky Notes icon in the taskbar is not combined

We still use Sticky Notes as a powerful reminder tool to plan our day and copy text from another app. By default, when we open multiple notes in Windows 10, they are automatically grouped in the same tab. However, after installing the latest 1903 updates, they are all separated in the taskbar. I set the taskbar to automatically hide them, but that doesn’t work either. What can we do to fix this problem?

It’s frustrating having to open each note to see them all. For example, if we have about 8 sticky notes, we have to type one at a time to see them all. This is redundant and takes up a lot more space on the taskbar. Maybe this is a new feature that allows users to move individual notes to different desktops. But the basic function is broken. You can try the solutions below to group Sticky Notes together. read more
