Sticky Notes has been a desktop note-taking application since it arrived as a gadget in Windows Vista. And it continues to be Windows’ only dedicated note-taking app still in Windows 10. The earlier stages of Sticky Notes for Windows 10 changed from a desktop app to a Windows Platform (UWP) app. This change is only understood by advanced users—it has always been and remains an app that you use from a desktop computer—but the addition of UWP means Sticky Notes can now be connected to powerful UI and advanced asynchronous features that are ideal for devices that are connected to the internet.
In Windows 10, Sticky Notes is a cross-platform app. That means it can run on other operating systems and not just Windows—including mobile operating systems such as Android and iOS. For most people, note-taking has more value when used on desktop computers, but by being a cross-platform app, it manages to keep up with the strong competition, such as what Google offers for free with Google Keep. To make use of the cross-platform integration with Sticky Notes, though, you must be using Microsoft OneNote. This added complication makes it less appealing than Google Keep for casual users, but still worthwhile for those who already have notes taken on Windows devices that they want to get access to from elsewhere. There is also a web client for editing sticky notes via the Microsoft OneNote website which can be accessed from this web address: onenote.com/stickynotes.
The following tutorial demonstrates how to turn on/off delete confirmation for Sticky Notes when using a version of the Windows 10 operating system.
How to Turn On/Off Delete Confirmation for Sticky Notes in Windows 10
You can turn on or off the notification that shows to confirm the deletion of a Sticky Note in Windows 10 from the Start menu or when using a sticky note. Here is how to do it both ways:
1. The quickest method for turning off Sticky Note notifications is opening the Sticky Notes app and trying to delete a note.

Open the Start menu, scroll down to the Sticky Notes app, right-click on Sticky Notes, and then click on Settings which will show the settings available for Sticky Notes. When the settings open, look under the General tab for a toggle called Confirm before deleting and turn it on or off.
In conclusion, that is how to turn on/off the confirmation dialog for deleted Sticky Notes in Windows 10 that asks if you are sure you want to delete them.
