How to See Your Notes in Gallery View:

  1. Open the Notes app.
  2. Tap Notes.


     
  3. Tap a Folder to open it, then tap the three dots on the top right of your screen.
  4. Tap View as Gallery.


     
  5. Tap the three dots again and select Sort Notes By Date if you'd like to change the arrangement of your notes.
  6. Now you have the option to sort your notes by Date Edited, Date Created, Title, Oldest to Newest, Newest to Oldest, or Default.

Gallery View is even more helpful when there's a photo or video attached to each note; it makes it easy to tell notes apart at a glance. Video attachments could be why your notes aren't locking so try Gallery View if you want to figure this out.
