PC World - Isabel Berney needs to know where Windows stores the Sticky Notes she creates, so she can make sure they're backed up.

Microsoft added Sticky Notes with Vista, and changed them entirely with Windows 7. In Vista, you can write longhand sticky notes with a mouse or pointer, or record them with a microphone, but you can't actually type them with a keyboard. Windows 7 does it the other way around.

But both versions save the notes in a file called StickyNotes.snt, located in the C:\Users\login\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Sticky Notes folder. (When I write login, I mean the name you use to log into Windows.) You can easily get to C:\Users\login\AppData\Roaming by selecting Start, typing %appdata%, and pressing ENTER.

I love Sticky notes and always have at least a few on the desktop since I'm very forgettable. But it just bugs me that they have a button in the taskbar, piling up whenever I write a new one. Still, this is a very interesting information, Night Hawk, so thanks

What's interesting about this is often people forget to look at the "Windows 7 features" page seen at MS when they make inquiries about Sticky Notes having just upgraded to 7 from XP or Vista. The MS page on this can be looked over at Windows 7 features - Sticky Notes - Microsoft Windows
