information   Information
Sticky Notes allows you to type and leave a Post-it type note on your desktop until deleted.

This tutorial will show you how to change the color of a new or existing Sticky Note to be either Blue, Green, Pink, Purple, White, or Yellow in Windows 7 and Windows 8.

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





Here's How:
1. Right click on a blank space in the Sticky Note (StikyNot.exe) that you want to change the color of, and select the color that you want it to be. (See screenshot below)

Yeah a color picker and even the option to put in the RGB values, that would be sweet. I think they could also let you picky a sticky note theme. I know I could imagine a nice little glassy 'gloss' sticky note on my desktop.

Can other colours be added? Like orange, or red. Just a thought.

Hello Zaydie, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could also type the text in any format and color you like in WordPad (C:\Windows\write.exe), then be able to copy and paste it from WordPad into a Sticky Note keeping the same format and color.

In addition, the free program Stickies has a lot features.

Hope this helps, :)
