    No they are not in the 6801 build but you can copy them from your vista sidebar directory in Program files\Windows Sidebar\Gadgets.

    Gary as far as I know you just click on the little spanner on the right of it to bring up the options, if that's what you mean, unless you were asking about different colours for each note but I don't think you can do that.

    If you wanted to you could have more than one note pad and then you can have a different colour for each pad.

    I typed 'sticky notes' into the start menu search bar and it came up. You can make each note any color by right clicking on the new note and selecting a color, mix and match, but the default is green and I'd like to change it to blue. There is no 'options' button. The program file is located at %SystemRoot%\system32\StikyNot.exe. It is not the same as the stickies in the Vista sidebar. Hopefully this is something that just hasn't gotten added yet.

    Just a note here, or should I say a sticky..?

    If anyone wants a more flexible sticky note programme where you can tell them to alert you when you wish try Zhorn Software's "Stickies 6.7a" - works on both Vista and Windows 7.

    Hello Ex-Brit,

    Have finally had a chance to play around with this program. I like it. Being able to pin a sticky to a particular window is nice. Also, if I click the x it doesn't kill the sticky, it's still in the database. Thanks a bunch.

    You can also tell the sticky to sleep for x hours/days etc. or until a specific day and time and it will alert you with sound if you wish, as well as visual.

    You're welcome. By the way I know you can do most of that with Windows Calendar, but this is less obtrusive.
