Sticky notes for your desktop

Sticky notes for your desktop

When it comes to remembering your tasks, events, appointments and the list goes on, sticky notes for your desktop is such a cool way of being reminded.

Most people still use the physical sticky notes, those yellow or other colored pads you jot your notes on, but I find this so valuable to be able to even set an alarm for your reminders and be notified right on your desktop.

A special thanks to Tom Revell for creating this software and giving it away to users free of charge.

  • Once on screen, stickies will remain where placed until closed, even through reboots
  • Stickies appearance can be customised; fonts, colours and buttons may be changed, and styles saved. Stickies can be re-sized.
  • Stickies can store text or images
  • Stickies can snap to each other and to the sides of the screen to keep them neatly lined up
  • Stickies can be attached to a web site, document or folder so they only show when it’s on screen
  • Stickies can be transferred from one machine to another either over a TCP/IP network connection, or by using an SMTP mail server or MAPI client:
    • Hierarchical friends list, which may be automatically transferred from other friends
    • Play a sound file on receive
    • Signature for transmitted or emailed stickies
    • Favourite friends, and custom lists can be made

  • Stickies is small and simple, it writes to a single text file, and does not alter the registry

I’ve used physical sticky notes for years and still do, and I’m sure you will find this a convenient and valuable software program.

  1. Hey Steve,

    I use a similar type of sticky note. It is called 7 Sticky Notes. They work great.

    Thanks for having such a great website as a resource tool to come and learn from.
