Access Samsung Notes on PC?

Recently got the S10e and it's my first Galaxy phone. Decided to give the stock apps a try before switching to my usual, and the Notes app isn't half bad. I wouldn't mind using it except for one huge drawback: there doesn't appear to be any way to access my notes from a PC.

There appears to be a Windows 10 app, but that shows up as incompatible with my laptop, and I wouldn't be able to use that from a work computer anyway. I couldn't find any answers doing a web search, so I'm guessing there's no web application or extension but thought I'd ask anyway.

Being unable to access my notes outside of the app really cripples its usefulness.

This is useless. This puts the Samsung note app on your other computer but unless you have a pen it's not even compatible with or downloadable to the desktop. This doesn't synchronize your notes from the smart phone to the desktop or vice versa such as Apple does and has and Google documents etc.

Thanks for sharing this.  Looks like the update is needed (for those who can't get it to sync).  Here is the link to add it to the Microsoft App Store.  Install from here and it will update automatically https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/samsung-notes/9nblggh43vhv?activetab=pivot:overviewtab

I had to go the route of using the XDA download, then tried the Microsoft Store link ... it redirected me to the Canadian store, and the link wouldn't work. Just "wish list". Forced it to the US Microsoft Store, app updated, and now it's syncing! Samsung needs to get that sorted out. Why force users to go through so much to use something that obviously just works if they didn't cripple it with fake restrictions?

Installed the zipped file (the other method given in the link didn't work for me) and it installed fine but when I went to log in to my Samsung account, it gave me this error. Do you happen to know if there any way around this? Or will I have to wait for the xda developers to create a new one because of the update?Installed the zipped file (the other method given in the link didn't work for me) and it installed fine but when I went to log in to my Samsung account, it gave me this error.

Fix for Microsoft Store app telling you (erroneously) that this app isn't compatible with your PC:

 

Above link will open the appropriate Microsoft store website in a new browser tab.  If you click Get it will open the Microsoft Store app on your PC.  Next to Get is the ... (menu) button. If you click ... you will have the option to Add to cart, select this & complete the entire checkout process (the app is free, don't worry lOl). Once the checkout process is complete open the Microsoft Store app on your PC. In the upper right corner of the window click the ... menu & click the My Library scroll through your owned items until you find Samsung Notes, you should now see a blue Install option, click this & it should proceed normally.

HUGE thank you! My notes are syncing as I type this. I also was able to write a note on my Surface Pro 7 and have it sync to my Note 9 & 10+. You the real MVP! No need for downloading this from a 3rd party site which has given me issues in the past.
