Save sticky notes?

I did a quick search but found nothing relevant. The question is - is it possible to save sticky notes for further use? I don't want to keep them open all th time and I want to keep some doodles
I undertstand that I can probably just copy them or printscreen, but is it possible just to save them?

Oh wait, I just figured that if you right click sticky notes in the taskbar you can still "close window" and afterwards open it and whatever you wrote/drew loads up

But anyway, is it possible to save them as files, if, for example, I take notes on my tablet pc and don't wan to keep all of them on the screen all the time?

You can find the file here C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Sticky Notes
The file is called StickyNotes.snt

Note that you need to be able to view hidden files and folders - see Hidden Files and Folders - Show or Hide for details.

Forgot to add that irrespective of how many individual notes you have, there is only one file per <UserName>, which contains all the notes in a single file.

How do they persist?

Hello!

Are they actually written to disk? Or are they gone as soon as i restart, or turn off the computer?

When are they saved? (if they are)

Regards
Lasse

They are saved, in the file as indicated in a previous post. So, unless you delete the note, it will still be available after shutting down and rebooting.

Cool, I don't have to put them on my fridge anymore.

I've just been leaving the sticky notes open when I shut down or reboot and they're there when the PC starts up again...

Should I be doing the close window thing first?

Cheers

Delete or close?

I accidentally clicked the x on my sticky note and had a lot of data I needed on it. It didn't ask me so save but when I open the snt file mentioned it's just a default blank note. How can I get my notes back?

Just a guess, but try navigating to the C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\ directory, right click on the StickyNotes folder, and try to restore previous version.
