Copy the old StickyNotes from %appdata%\Microsoft\Sticky Notes\StickyNotes.snt

 

Rename StickyNotes.snt to TresholdNotes.snt

 

Make sure the Sticky Notes app is not open on the new computer

 

Create a new folder called Legacy in %localappdata%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftStickyNotes_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState

 

Put the TresholdNotes.snt file in %localappdata%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftStickyNotes_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState\Legacy

 

Open Sticky Notes and let the magic unfold (it will import the TresholdNotes.snt file into its new sqlite form)
