Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (XP, 98SE, 95, 3.11, DOS 7.10 on VM) + Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Lucid Lynx

If you are looking for something other than a gadget, you can use Stickies.
Its free, not a resource hog, skinnable and REAL sticky

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit


I tried Stickies, but unfortunately it was almost a bit too full-featured and it got a little confusing.

Windows 7 Ultimate

I'm using a gadget called "Notes". I believe it's a port of some Vista Gadget. I can't remember where I downloaded it from. It can switch between two sizes. One about the area of a large desktop icon and another almost twice as big. There are 8 colors to choose from.

I would gladly upload the thing here if I at least knew the author, but there's no info in the settings, so hopefully you can find it using Google.

Sticky Notes
Recently updated from Vista to 7 on 2 machines (both Lenovo tablet PC's). I had several pre-existing sticky notes and use the program often. When I try to launch sticky notes in 7, I get a "corrupt metadata" error message. Same thing on both machines. Need suggestions for a fix. Thanks.
