there was a way to make a folder on the desktop look like sticky note

there was a way to make a folder on the desktop look like a sticky note, but I forgot how to do it.

you make a new folder and do something to it. it was easy.

when you double click on the folder and it opens up, it's just a colored square, with a list of contents, no details.

looked all over the internet and can't find it. how do you do it?
