Toolbars - How to Use in Windows 7 and Vista
Yes and I have fooled with them some but didn't like them. They (or jump lists) are ok for links to reduce icons on the task bar or to reduce dependency on the Start Menu but I don't need any more programs quickly accessible than I already have on the task bar (at the time I took the screen shot, I also had three folders opened and resized for a specific task but minimized so I could see the desktop so the taskbar is actually less cluttered than shown) so toolbars or jump lists aren't really needed. I also find them cumbersome to use.

As far as the stuff on the desktop goes, it's there because I need it in my face; otherwise I would forget about it. If I used tool bars, they wouldn't be in my face. I have ADHD and, if something isn't in my face, it's forgotten (one reason why One Note didn't work for me). That's why all the virtual post-it notes. I do have some notes I don't need in my face but I refer to often enough to want the easily accessible. Those are the four at the top of the screen to the left of the calendar and are rolled up to conserve screen real estate. When I need to access the data on them, I just roll them down.

To you, what's on my desktop may appear to be trivial clutter. To me, it's a lifeline to keep my life reasonably organized.

My desktop has changed a bit since then. It's a bit less cluttered now.

just out of interest, what is bovine scatology, ( i have a fair idea!)
is it linked to "rooty tooty stinky booty".

Attachment 302917
It's a cleaner (pardon the oxymoron) version of a common vulgar expression that refers to the substance that would come from a bull that is often to equate extreme nonsense. Rooty tooty stinky booty refers to the source of something equally vulgar but less substantial. That post it note is where I post phrases or names I need or want to remember (it's due for a clean up soon, pardon the pun). Because of my learning disabilities, it takes considerable repetition before things "stick" in my mind (and, frequently, not even then). Sadly, the only thing I retain well is water.

7 Sticky Notes. Until recently, I was using an ancient version of another sticky note program I had been using for years because it had a slightly smaller screen footprint than 7 Sticky Notes but I wasn't able to backup the notes like I can with 7 Sticky Notes (I have it set to automatically backup notes).

Opening OneNote
I don't think there's a hotkey (Like Win+N) to open the actual program, OneNote.
