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.

The real easy solution is here:

Step-By-Step Instructions to View Samsung Notes on Computer

Step 1: Open the Samsung Notes page on the Microsoft Store website using any browser from the link given below. Log in to the same Microsoft account that is registered with the Microsoft Store app on your PC.

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/samsung-notes/9nblggh43vhv?activetab=pivot:overviewtab

 

Step 2: You will see the Get button instead of Install. Do not click on that. Look next to it, and you will find the three-dot icon. Click on that and select Add to Cart.

 

Step 3: You will reach the Samsung Cart page. Click on Checkout.

 

Step 4: Then, on the review page. Click on Place order.

 

Step 5: Now open the Microsoft Store app on your computer and search for Samsung Notes. Click on it.

 

Step 6: If you see the Install button, click on it to install the app.

 

If the Install button is grayed out, click on the three-dot icon next to the Install and select Install on my devices. Select your computer and install the app.

I could not DL the Samsung Notes app with this method through my Windows 10, Asus Notebook, since the three dots next to GET do not appear in my browser. However, I was able to do it from my chrome browser on my Note 8 phone.

 

I had to work between the phone and the PC, but I have Samsung Notes on my PC now.

There are no 3 dots in Microsoft Store to add to cart any longer.

 

Is there any way to sync Samsung Notes to PC or Sign in to Notes from pc browser and read or copy notes?

 

What good is it if I can't sync with pc?

 

Is there some way to.export existing Samsung notes to another app that DOES sync with pc?

 

If my phone breaks or is stolen note are inaccessible.  Crazy

I can get Samsung Notes on Windows using all the steps described above, but it doesn't properly sync my notes.

However, Samsung is reportedly working with Microsoft to sync notes with OneNote, so we'll have a working solution soon enough. The Reminders app, at least for me, now syncs with Microsoft To-Do.

Come on Samsung, get a grip and get on with this. It was possible with S Note, why not Samsung Notes? Might return my device.

I found an easy work around solution that worked on my Lenovo Spectre (Windows 10) just now. 

 

1. Log into your microsoft account at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/apps/windows from your smartphone (I am using the Galaxy S10 btw)

2. Search for Samsung Notes app 

3. Click "Install on my devices" (this will show only on a different type of OS than Windows)

4. It should come up with your computer and all PCs under your name.

5. (When your PC is on) Check that PC and click "Install now". If you were already in the Microsoft store on your PC you will see the download at the top. 

6. Open Samsung Notes once it's finished downloading, and log into your Samsung account to sync all your notes. 

Compared to your phone, there seems to be even more writing features, or maybe they're just laid out better. Hopefully this works for you guys.

This is the Best Working Solution. Thanks.

This solution worked!

The other "solution" that has you click the ellipsis next to the "Get" button did not work for me.

The option to "add to cart" isn't there for me... just to redeem a code.

 

What has worked is to download the .appx from XDA, extract the .zip and install.

I went to the app and logged into my Samsung account and told it to Sync - but it didn't.

 

Go to the store page and launch the store app by pressing "Get" (MS Store App opens)

It should tell you the app is installed.

Then drag down to "refresh" and it will update.

 

I went back and told it to "Sync now" - it did! And all is right in the world!
