Went to go use Samsung Notes on my Windows Laptop only be told that the program that literally worked forever on my machine, is now only working with Samsung branded PC's. 

This is just bad business. Whoever thought this was a good idea needs to be fired.
Is this the beginning of the end for Samsung?

Hello, welcome to the Samsung Community. I understand your frustrations with wanting to view your Samsung Notes on your Windows computer and I will be more than happy to take a look into this with you.


If your Samsung Notes app is full of important folders, notes, and tasks, you can make sure they'll never get lost by using Microsoft OneNote. This service allows you to sync your notes across all of your devices, so you can view them from Microsoft Office on a PC. You’ll just need to make sure you’re signed in to your Microsoft account on your Galaxy Phone or tablet. 


Note: You can sync the Reminder app with Microsoft To Do as well, if you’d like to view both your notes and reminders using Office. Syncing the Reminder app with Microsoft To Do is available on devices running One UI 2.5 and later.

Note: If your Galaxy Phone or tablet has Samsung Cloud, you may be required to turn it on before enabling OneNote sync.


Open Samsung Notes

Tap Menu (the three horizontal lines)

Tap Settings 

Tap Sync to Microsoft OneNote 

Tap Get Started 

You will be prompted to login to your Microsoft Account 

Select the Folders that you would like to sync (Folders that are synced will have a OneNote icon next to them)

Tap back and make sure that sync is enabled by tapping the switch at the top

Sync now: Allows you to sync your folders manually.

Folders to sync: You can select the individual folder or folders to sync.

Sync using: Choose to sync using Wi-Fi only or Wi-Fi and mobile data.

Sync while roaming: Sync your content while data roaming

Sign out: If needed, you can sign out of your Microsoft account.

On your PC, sign in to your Microsoft account in Outlook. Then, select the OneNote feed icon in the top right corner to view your synced notes.
Note: You cannot edit or remove notes from Samsung Notes using the OneNote feed. To edit your notes, you will need to use the Samsung Notes app.
