Sticky notes isn't pinned on the taskbar by default.

What exactly are you trying to do?

when you put a sticky note on the desktop, surprise surprise, it stays on the taskbar.

well, it shouldn't, i want it transferred to the tray icon area, or something.

He does have a point, there should be an option to banish it to the tray icon area.

Yeah, I see what you mean. Sorry, I don't know of a way to have it not show up when it's running. Maybe someone else does.

Use the one original to vista's sidebar or download another from live gallery.

The one from vista will also show as you peak at the desktop.

Or you could try this. Stickies

It stays in the notification area. The stickies roll up when not in use and you can set an alarm among other things.

Works great for me.

same thing here, it is very handy and much better than the one on Vista sidebar, but the dumb thing that it stays on the taskbar !!!

Media Player has the same problem It would be nice to have the options to choose taskbar or tasktray or both like Winamp does.

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.
