How to pin a note to the top of a list in Notes for macOS High Sierra

You can keep your most important notes pinned to the top of your list in macOS High Sierra. No more lost to-do lists!

If you use the Notes app as much as I do, you probably already know the sting of having your most important notes fall down to a low spot on your list because you've created so many new ones since the last time you made changes to them. In macOS High Sierra, you will be able to pin your precious ideas to the top of the list so that, no matter how many new notes you create, those pinned notes will stay at the top. Here's how.

Apple occasionally offers updates to iOS, watchOS, tvOS, and macOS as closed developer previews or public betas for iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and Mac (sadly, no public beta for the Apple Watch). While the betas contain new features, they also contain pre-release bugs that can prevent the normal use of your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV, or Mac, and are not intended for everyday use on a primary device. That's why we strongly recommend staying away from developer previews unless you need them for software development, and using the public betas with caution. If you depend on your devices, wait for the final release.

How to pin a note to the top of your list in the Notes app on macOS High Sierra

When you want to keep a note at the top of your list, where it's easily accessible, stick a pin in it!

  1. Launch the Notes app on your Mac.
  2. Select a Note.

  3. Click on File in the App menu at the upper left of your screen.
  4. Click on Pin Note.

The note will remain at the top of your list under a section called Pinned Notes, no matter what changes you make to the rest of your notes, or on which device.

How to unpin a note at the top of your list in the Notes app on macOS High Sierra

Don't need a note at the top of your list anymore? Pull the pin!

  1. Launch the Notes app on your Mac.
  2. Select a Note.

  3. Click on File in the App menu at the upper left of your screen.
  4. Click on Unpin Note.

After you remove a pin, the note will revert back to its place in the list based on chronological order of last changed.
