Windows 7: Cannot find Sticky Notes Options

Cannot find Sticky Notes Options

Hey everyone.

I for some reason cannot find options or tools under the win7 Sticky Notes to change program and note settings. When I open sticky notes it just opens a sticky note on the desktop where I can add another or delete the one I have open. If I right-click on the sticky note all I get are the different color choices and the normal cut, copy, paste, delete, and select all. Could this be because I do not have admin rights on the laptop because it's my company laptop?

Thanks for the help!

Hello Sean, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Unfortunately, that's all there is to Sticky Notes. For more options, you might give the free program Stickies and/or 7 Sticky Notes a try to see if one may work better.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

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!
