Windows 7: sticky notes color

30 Nov 2008   #11

Windows 10 Pro x64 x3, Ubuntu

Hi Peter,

The problem I have is that on vista I always use a combination of Thunderbird (lightning) and a clock gadget to put up notes and reminders, with spending more time in Windows 7 although Thunderbird works fine I don't want to mess up my main email settings on vista - with synchronisation (imap) on two OS's

This will do nicely for my reminders I think I'll install on Vista too

Yes I found the alarm and hide functions. This is what I was looking for. I have tried moving Vista's calender to 7, but I couldn't get the alarm function to function. There is also a synchronization function to export and import notes. Should be added to the free software list if not already there.
