Windows 7 Sticky notes

This isn’t actually a gadget review, as the sticky notes in windows 7 have taken the form of an application instead of a gadget as in windows vista.

The Sticky Notes app lets you create small notes that stick to your screen, just like real sticky notes would. You can create simple to-do lists or make reminders for yourself so you don’t forget to do some important task. You can create notes in six different colors, helping you to keep them apart.

Windows 7 Sticky Notes

The sticky note will increase in size as you keep typing, and you can of course re-size the note to desired size yourself.

Sticky Notes in the Taskbar

You can create new notes instantly from the taskbar, by right-clicking on the Sticky Notes icon.

So if you’ve missed the fact that Windows 7 includes a Sticky Notes app, and have been searching for an alternative to the gadget that used to be in Windows Vista, look no further!

You can also change the font size (by holding CTRL while scrolling up or down), boldface, underline, or italicize the text. ;)

Excellent post, and the download button ?

Michael March 30th, 2012 at 3:52 am

There is no download link because its an app already included with your windows 7 installation. Run it at…
Start Menu> Programs> Accessories> Sticky Notes

Bob April 29th, 2012 at 6:09 am

It is NOT included in the Windows 7 Starter Edition!

This is probably the most common reason for regressing into
an unhealthy lifestyle. For example you might do a video that discusses
the importance of monitoring a person’s carbohydrate intake.
This is the reason why mice are used in medical research.

I do consider all of the concepts you have introduced in your post.
They’re very convincing and will certainly work.
Nonetheless, the posts are too quick for newbies. Could you please prolong them a little from subsequent time?
Thank you for the post.
