Great alternative to Windows Sticky Notes

DesktopNoteOK is a nice little lightweight utility for quick creation of desktop notes with a difference...

These desktop sticky notes have options for multiple themes, choice of text color and font, size and custom backgrounds. There's even an optional translation function included in the multilingual program.

Color and background options enable you to code your desktop sticky notes - e.g. for visibly defining varying degrees of priority or different colors for specific tasks or errands to be performed.

Simple to use desktop sticky notes

Free DesktopNoteOK can be downloaded and installed on your system or used as a portable application.

Upon launch, the program provides a configuration window. You can, if you prefer, use it with the default settings. Simply click 'New Note' and a note will be generated in a random background color and use the default font.

The program's interface displays your setting options beneath a menu bar with Program, Info and Language tabs and at right, Exit and a link to the developer's FAQ webpage.

Settings include:

  • Theme - Simple, Simple with shadows and Simple with the shadow in the not color.
  • Color - Random Light or Custom which brings up a drop-down palette.
  • Text Color - Random Dark, Random Light or Custom color from a drop-down palette.
  • Font - the default is Segoe with the font type immediately selectable or you can click the box alongside the field to access any font installed on your system.
  • Always on Top - a Yes or No switch
  • Size - select from 100 to 400 pixels
  • Transparency - slider to select transparency percentage

At the bottom of the window you'll find, alongside the New Note tab, a Start with Windows checkbox. Clicking the New Note tab gives you options to Show, Hide or Delete All, Hide Bars automatically in addition to accessing a newly numbered note.

The new note created has a pin icon at the top for sticking it to - or freeing it from - the desktop and a lightning bolt icon which enables you to export your note to Wordpad or Notepad. Your settings are also accessible from this drop-down menu. Clicking the plus button at the top left displays an additional sticky note. Notes can all be moved around the desktop.

The Info tab on the menu bar provides options to visit various pages on the SoftwareOK website, and Language has access to French, German and Korean language packs or loading a Unicode language file.

Free DesktopNoteOK is a handy desktop sticky notes application. At less than 200 Kb, and compact in terms of resources usage, it is useful to have immediately available - especially on Windows 10 where Windows Sticky Notes are complicated to access.

Installed, DesktopNoteOK provides quick access from the system tray to creating attractive notes on your desktop or, just as quickly deleting them. The free program is compatible with all recent of the Windows OS versions. 32- and 64-bit Windows download packages are available separately.
