Software Product Description

The Sticky Notes application allows you to create electronic sticky notes directly on your Windows desktop. The Sticky Notes are just like paper post-it notes for your computer. Jot down tasks, messages, ideas, appointments, phone numbers, birthdays in a note and stick it on the desktop.

A note can be positioned anywhere you wish, or hidden in your task bar, then searched and displayed later. Notes can be resized.

The note's contents can be formatted to include fonts, colors, transparency and hyperlinks. Once on screen, notes will remain where placed until closed, even through reboots.

Sticky Notes application is small and simple and all notes are kept in the text file. It does not use the registry.
