Windows 7: Sticky Notes

Sticky Notes

I've used a 3M program before which had issues with multiple screens sometimes, so I was happy to see the new standard sticky app.

I'm a bit disappointed with MS for letting this behave like any other app window - when I click the show desktop button, I'd like to see all my stickies that I pasted there, right? That'd be close to real world behavior IMHO.

Instead you get an entry in the in the task bar, which works fine to access your stickies, but it doesn't feel natural.

Cheers, HaJo

I keep it pinned to Taskbar and of course allow it in msconfig so any To Do lists remain on my desktop. It pretty much hangs on the desktop as the gadgets do.

I agree that both should not yield to Show Desktop, but MS must have a reason or they should change it soon.

No sticky notes?
Hi, I just developed a need for the sticky note function, but it's nowhere to be found. I searched for sticky, and sticky notes, in the Start menu - nothing. It's not listed on the Windows components list either. I must be the only one without sticky notes!

Sticky Notes
Recently updated from Vista to 7 on 2 machines (both Lenovo tablet PC's). I had several pre-existing sticky notes and use the program often. When I try to launch sticky notes in 7, I get a "corrupt metadata" error message. Same thing on both machines. Need suggestions for a fix. Thanks.
