Reduce the minimum size of Sticky Notes

Hello, how can I reduce the minimum size of Sticky Notes? Now the minimum size is too wide. Other than that, does anyone know how to make Sticky Notes not show up in the taskbar while it is running? Thanks in advance.
Here are the pictures:

Hello bbkc, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could move the mouse pointer over any of the borders of the sticky note itself until the pointer turns into a double arrow, then drag the border back and forth to adjust it's width or hight to how you like.

Hope this helps some,
Shawn

Yes, but at a certain point, I cannot reduce the size anymore. (Refer to the first photo)

Unfortunately, that will be as much as you will be able to reduce it by.

if you're unhappy about the taskbar icon, then maybe you would like to have a look at stickies - an alternative, more powerful free sticky note program.

this lives in your notification area, and has more features than the basic windows sticky notes...

Quote:
Main features:
  • Once on screen, stickies will remain where placed until closed, even through reboots
  • Stickies appearance can be customised; fonts, colours and buttons may be changed, and styles saved. Stickies can be resized.
  • Stickies can store text or images
  • Stickies can snap to each other and to the sides of the screen to keep them neatly lined up
  • Stickies can be attached to a web site, document or folder so they only show when it's on screen
  • Stickies can be transferred from one machine to another either over a TCP/IP network connection, or by using an SMTP mail server or MAPI client:
  • Hierarchical friends list, which may be automatically transferred from other friends
  • Play a sound file on receive
  • Signature for transmitted or emailed stickies
  • Favourite friends, and custom lists can be made
  • Stickies can be hidden for a certain period, until a specified date and time, or to wake every day, week or month, to act as reminders.
  • Stickies can have alarms set to ensure you notice them at a point you choose
  • International language, Unicode and RTL text support
  • Stickies works with Windows Vista and Windows 7
  • Stickies is small and simple, it writes to a single text file, and does not alter the registry
  • AD network administrators can use Group Policy to control settings
  • API to allow integration with other applications
  • ...and Stickies is completely free!
