Go to start/all programs/ accessories/ and click on sticky notes.
It should pop up in the upper right hand corner of your screen as it did mine.

Sticky Notes will basically open, expand nicely as needed, then stay open on the Desktop through restarts until you close it.

I use it as a handy To Do list or to make brief notes. - any more than that I use Notepad, both of which I pin to taskbar.

It will not stick to Documents or anything except Desktop - not sticky enough

Happy Sticky notes user here, with one issue:

Is it possible to to get Sticky away from my Taskbar? I don't pin anything to my taskbar, I don't like the idea. I use Sticky, I feel I also need it, but it disturbs me a little that it stays in Taskbar. Any change to show it in notification are instead, for instance?

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.
