Windows 7: Sticky Notes won't close

Sticky Notes won't close

Whenever I finish using sticky notes and I try to close it, it doesn't close.
There's always the Windows Ding sound and I can only close it from task manager.

Is there a way to fix this or is it a bug?

Hello Seamii and welcome to Seven Forums. Couple of things you can try.

If this just started you could try rolling back your computer to an earlier date/time using system restore. Since sticky notes are a part of the Windows 7 system files they might have gotten damaged or corrupted in some way.

System Restore

If this doesn't work (or you don't have any restore points) you could manually check for damaged or corrupt system files by running a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found, run the scan 3 times and reboot the computer after each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

You could also see if there are any application conflicts that might be interfering with sticky notes.

Anything better than 7's Sticky Notes?
Do you guys know any program better than Windows 7's Sticky Notes? The StickyNote 9.0 of Tenebril was the first one that caught my eye. It has some realistic 3D stuff and all, but then I have to spend some cash for it. If you guys know any freewares, that would be great.

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
Hi, I found this function really nice but, i would like to know if it's possible to only stick them on the desktop without having them task bar ? It would be great because we have one more thing in the task bar and i don't like that... Is it possible ? Thanks

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.
