How to View Samsung Notes on Windows PC/Laptop

Smartphone makers who also create custom UI and apps for certain utility often restrict it to their own devices. This non-compatibility is an ordeal for people who use gadgets from multiple OEMs. For instance, If you have a Samsung smartphone, then you cannot use the Note app or its content on the note apps of phones from other makers. However, if you have a Windows PC, then you can view the Samsung Notes content on that.

Microsoft Windows has a dedicated Samsung Notes app for the PC platform. So, all you need to do is install it and then access it via your Samsung account. In this guide, I have explained the whole process. So, check it out.

Also, if you face any message that says incompatible app while you try to download the Notes app on your PC, then here is a little workaround that should fix things up.

Normally, if the link opens up in the Microsoft Store app, then you will see this incompatible message as I have shown in the screenshot below. This usually happens if you are using a PC that is not of Samsung brand.
