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 works 100%. Add the app to your Microsoft Store library (Free), Install it. Make sure you have a Samsung cloud account. Login on both your mobile and your PC/Laptop...and sync away...

Done and Done.

I wasn't able to reproduce this behaviour. When I open the link and click on the Get Samsung notes, it opens up Microsoft Store and from there I cannot install the app.

 

How did you manage to install this on Windows 10?

 

Thank you,

I'm not OP, but thank you for this. Only issue was that I had to update the app before I could sign in to my Samsung account. Thankfully, Microsoft Store didn't give me any trouble updating like it did with initial installation.

Thanks. As others have reported, the MS Store versions said "incompatible device" (my PC!).

Installed from the download and it did not Sync. Said "update this".

However, MS Store did recognise and update the app.

Apart from being a bit sluggish with the sync, it WORKS.

Obviously, make sure that Samsung Cloud sync is correctly setup on both phone/device and the PC.

Sadly not compatible with my Windows 10 PC. So frustrating

It is ... but you have to jump through a few hoops. The Microsoft Store said mine was not compatible too - but it's working now after downloading, installing, and then updating through the Microsoft Store. I didn't try the 'add to cart' method mentioned. Could be worth a try if you don't have it installed yet.

I'm having some trouble figuring out how to install the program after unzipping the files. How do I run installation?

i downloaded the link, opened the app, but i am unable to sign into my samsung account to be able to sync the content on my galaxy 10+

 

 

theres a prompt that appears that says 

 

"This page has been shut down.
Update the app, then use the service."

 

this is the only thing i need to work right to finish set up for my PC running windows 10, was really excited when i found this thread
