- To do this: pop out the S-Pen, hover it over the display, then click the button and select Action memo. Write our your list, then tap and hold the pin icon in the upper right-hand corner. Your Action memo will turn into a tiny little sticky note that you can place anywhere on your Home screen.
- Go to "Widgets" folder, there should be an S Memo widget in it. Push and hold it. It will give you an option to move a generic S Memo note onto one of your home screens. Once you've done that, you can open it and choose between making this shortcut an existing note and creating a new one.
- If you don't have a pen, draw using a mouse or your fingers. To turn on the workspace, press and hold (or right-click) on the taskbar, and then select Show Windows Ink Workspace button. Select Windows Ink Workspace from the taskbar to open it. From here, you'll see Sticky Notes, sketchpad, and screen sketch.
