Hello NuevaEcija,

This can help show you how to.

Sticky Notes - Change Text Format

You might also give the free program Stickies a try to see how you like it. It has many more features.

Hope this helps,

Sticky Notes uses the Segoe Print font by default. You can copy and paste text with a different font from other programs (ex: WordPad) into a Sticky Note, but you cannot change the font in Sticky Notes.

I would recommend to give the free program Stickies a try. You are able to do so in it.
