Sticky Notes lost after I upgraded to Windows 10 Anniversary Update
All my Sticky Notes are gone after my PC was forced to upgrade to Windows 10 Anniversary Update.
What can I do to recover them?

Sticky Notes was a Desktop app. But starting with Windows 10 Anniversary Update, Sticky Notes has become a Trusted Windows Store app. Some suggestions:
Check if you can see this file C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Stic ky Notes\StickyNotes.snt. This is where the old notes are present. Open it with Notepad. You may be able to see something.
Search for stikynot on your Windows folder. You may find some instances of stikynot.exe in your WinSxS folder. Use it and see if you can open your old Sticky Notes.
Else if you can port them to another system which still uses the old Sticky Notes - StikyNot.exe and try to open them.
