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.

There is a better solution -- Go to Samsung Notes app on the Microsoft Store **in your browser**. Click on the dots next to the "Get" button and click "Add to Cart". Complete the checkout process with a $0.00 charge. Once you "buy" the app, go to the Microsoft Store app and navigate to Samsung notes. You will see a message saying you own the app, and an Install link right next to it. This allows you to bypass the "incompatible with your device" message altogether.

none of the solutions work for me, I switched from note 4 to note 10 and still do. 4 years have gone nowhere.

 

on one pc I work both methods but on the other neither do I need it to work laptop and there it is not possible.

The last method is great but you can't install it, the store hangs, I click install and nothing.

 

sadly, you buy a note because of a pen and actually does not need it, because most write notes and texts and I have no way to get to the PC and back to the mobile. Big disappointment from samsung

Here it is in June of 2020 and I got the same error, "this app is not compatible with this device" , when trying to download the Samsung Notes app from The Microsoft store.  This solution however worked great!

Thanks for this!

By the regular way it is impossible to install. But, I could do it by another way. 

You just need to access the Samsung Note in the Windows Store by browser and click in the "3 dots" and choose Add to my cart. So, you buy the app (for free) and install using the Windows Store app. 

For me, it worked. Let me know if it worked for you too. Bye.
