How back up Sticky Notes?

Hello, well - it's all in the subject line; how do I back up the data on the notes? I know that StikyNot.exe resides in the Windows\System32 folder, but the data?
Thank you.

a quick google search reveals that the data is stored in:

Sticky Notes - Backup and Restore

Code:
C:\Users\*username*\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Sticky Notes\StickyNotes.snt
you have to have 'show hidden files, folders and drives' enabled in your folder options to see this.

Yes. The problem all along was, as is not unusual, me. I do not know why I didn't find it using 'Everything' the first time but, there it is.

Thank you for bearing with me!

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!
