Sticky Notes

Really simple -> Where is the sticky notes stored at? If I add a note, where does Windows 7 put it?

Thanks

I typed a few sticky notes, and then moved the file like you said and then deleted them off the desktop and now I can't get them back. I'm using good sync and I want to sync the two together in case I need a back up.

I do know this. when you close sticky notes they come back up when you open it again. so don't click the X to get rid of them. I think they're deleted once you do that. they don't go to the recycle bin either.

Go to here:

C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Sticky Notes

Or

UserName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\StickyNotes.

You will need to able to view Hidden Files
Inside this should be StickyNote.snt (where all the notes are stored).

Thank you both for helping me. I did find it and now I'm hoping my sync programs does it job now.

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.
