This tutorial will show you how to change the default font in Sticky Notes in Windows 7 and Windows 8.


warning   Warning
Copy the StikyNot.exe.mui to your desktop to edit



Use a resource hacker (I used Restorator 2007). Any resource hacker should do. Open up the StikyNot.exe.mui file from C:\Windows\System32\en-US extracted 3080.xml file.

A Window will open up, and then type in the font of your choice. Click on Replace All. You will get a window telling you how many times it replaced it. I get 70.

How do I replace the modified 3080.xml back to StikyNot.exe.mui, dragging into Restorator doesn't work. And I can't edit directly from it (copy on Desktop).

That's how I do it by dragging and dropping back into place I don't know why yours isn't working.

Done job. When you drag back the 3080.xml file, be sure to drag it to the folder, not on the space below the html folder. It should be dragged directly into the folder so that the folder is highlighted while you are dragging the xml file.

And for 64 bit the mui file is located below:

Where do I find StickyNot.exe.mui and 3080.xml? I don't see them in System 32. Is it because I have sticky notes open? Do we have to edit anything in syswow64 if you're using 64-bit?

Also note that you can open and browse/modify EXE/DLL files in Visual Studio, if you have that. I was able to the same in VS2012.
