Recently I had to reinstall Windows 10 from scratch on a new drive. This incidentally resolved a different problem I was having with the Sticky-Note widgets. But I realized that now the
... is missing from the widget menu-bar, so I can no longer choose the background colour for any of my sticky notes. I know notice the feature is suddenly missing on my Windows 7 machine at work. So I wonder if this has been caused by a recent Windows Update. Has Microsoft (either intentionally or accidentally) removed this feature from Sticky Notes? Is there a Windows configuration option or registry setting to restore this?
On my Win 10 machine I have tried using the "Reset" feature for the app (via Start > Settings > System > Apps & Features) but it did not solve the problem.
