Sort and pin notes on Mac
By default, the notes you’ve changed most recently are listed first in the notes list, but you can sort notes differently. You can also pin your most important notes to the top of the list for easy access. To pin notes, you must be using upgraded iCloud notes or notes stored on your Mac.
In the Notes app on your Mac, choose Notes > Preferences.
Click the “Sort notes by” pop-up menu, then choose an option.
The option you choose applies to notes in all folders.
Pinned notes always appear at the top of the list of notes.
In the Notes app on your Mac, select one or more notes, then choose File > Pin Note.
If you have a trackpad or a Magic Mouse, you can also swipe right with two fingers on the note (in the list of notes), then click the Pin button .
Note: If you pin a note on one device, it is pinned on all your devices.
You can’t pin a note from the Recently Deleted folder, or one that hasn’t been upgraded.
