I guess I must have deleted them. I cant find them in accessories or search for them. What is the easy way of reinstalling them?

Right click on the desktop. Select New then Shortcut. In the window that pops up paste this, %windir%\system32\StikyNot.exe

Then OK, give it a name. From there you can drag it into the start menu.

Hello Beehappier, and welcome to Seven Forums.

What edition of Windows 7 do you have?

Sticky Notes is not available in the Windows 7 Starter and Home Basic editions.

If this is the case, then you could use the free program Stickies instead if you like.
