Apple Notes is a useful application for taking notes on Apple devices. This application is linked to an Apple ID account so that it can be used on all connected Apple devices, be it the MacBook, iMac, iPhone and iPad.

Notes that you create in Apple Notes are stored in Apple's iCloud, so they sync across all your devices. This will make it easier for you to quickly take important notes on whichever device is currently being held, and to continue them on other connected devices.

What about users who use Apple devices, but also use Windows, such as Dual Boot MacOS and Windows 10 for example. Can you install the Apple Notes application on Windows 10?

Until now, there is no Apple Notes application for the Windows 10 desktop, so it can only be accessed via a browser. However, there is one trick we can do to access Apple Notes as if it were an application.

How to install and use Apple Notes on Windows 10

1. Open Google Chrome

First, as usual, to access the Apple Notes application on Windows 10 we need a browser. The Google Chrome browser is recommended.

2. Create a new profile on Google Chrome

The next step is to create a new profile on Google Chrome. The goal is to separate the Apple Notes cache and cookies from the commonly used browser.

In Google Chrome, click the Profile button => click the Add button.

3. Open the Apple Notes application

Make sure you are on the new browser profile that was created earlier.

Then enter the Apple Notes application via the following link:

4. Login with Apple ID

You will be asked to log in with an Apple account.

Log in as usual, if you have activated 2-step verification, then you need to open your Apple device to get the code.

Important step: You have to tick the option Keep me signed in.

The Keep me signed in option must be checked, the goal is that the Apple Notes application on Windows 10 can be opened immediately without logging in repeatedly.

5. Select Trust this browser

Then the question Trust this browser will appear. Click on the Trust option. The goal is that the next login does not need to use a verification code again.

After entering Apple Notes in the browser, the next step is to create a shortcut on the Windows 10 desktop.

The trick is to click on the menu button in the upper right corner => select More tools => click Create shortcut.

Solution for dual boot Windows 10 and MacOS

For those of you who install Windows 10 and MacOS dual boot on one Apple computer (MacBook or iMac) and don't have another Apple device, you will definitely experience difficulty logging in.

When logging into Apple Notes on Windows 10, you will be asked for a verification code that is sent to the Apple device, which is the computer that is currently being used.

The problem is, we can't run MacOS and Windows at the same time.

Then what is the solution?

So easy. All you need to do is sign-out your Apple ID account on your MacBook or iMac before doing the tricks in this tutorial.

You do this by going to System preferences => Apple ID => Overview => Sign Out.

After that reboot into Windows 10 and start doing the trick to create a shortcut to the Apple Notes application in this tutorial. When logging in, a verification code will be sent to the cell phone number.

When finished, you can re-login on your MacBook or iMac as usual.

Good luck, hope it can be useful.
