Go to start/all programs/ accessories/ and click on sticky notes.
It should pop up in the upper right hand corner of your screen as it did mine.

Sticky Notes will basically open, expand nicely as needed, then stay open on the Desktop through restarts until you close it.

I use it as a handy To Do list or to make brief notes. - any more than that I use Notepad, both of which I pin to taskbar.

It will not stick to Documents or anything except Desktop - not sticky enough

Happy Sticky notes user here, with one issue:

Is it possible to to get Sticky away from my Taskbar? I don't pin anything to my taskbar, I don't like the idea. I use Sticky, I feel I also need it, but it disturbs me a little that it stays in Taskbar. Any change to show it in notification are instead, for instance?

Anything better than 7's Sticky Notes?
Do you guys know any program better than Windows 7's Sticky Notes? The StickyNote 9.0 of Tenebril was the first one that caught my eye. It has some realistic 3D stuff and all, but then I have to spend some cash for it. If you guys know any freewares, that would be great.

I've used a 3M program before which had issues with multiple screens sometimes, so I was happy to see the new standard sticky app. I'm a bit disappointed with MS for letting this behave like any other app window - when I click the show desktop button, I'd like to see all my stickies that I...

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.
