Samsung Notes is one of the best performing note-taking apps among Samsung phone and tablet users due to the fact that it enables you to use the S Pen features to write, capture, and draw your notes along with the support for handwriting as well as other interesting features.
However, when you try to install Samsung Notes on your PC, the Microsoft Store will show you the “this app is not compatible with this device” message.
But you don’t need to worry as here we have a complete and easy to follow step-by-step guide on how to bypass the compatibility issue and how to view and access all of your Samsung Notes on a Windows PC or computer:
