    I've had a few people with Windows 7 ask me about Sticky Notes. Here's all I know, in case you didn't even know about them at all, or the features available.

    Sticky Notes come with the following versions of Windows 7
    Home Premium
    Professional
    Ultimate
    Enterprise

    The default install location is C:\Windows\System32\StikyNot.exe

    Behavior
    Clicking the X on a note DELETES it (When the last note is deleted, Sticky Notes closes: see autorun info below)
    Clicking the + on a note creates a new note of the same colour (see formatting below)
    Right Clicking on the taskbar icon and clicking Close Window will save all the notes (See next two points)
    Whenever started Sticky Notes adds itself to the Autorun in the registry
    Whenever closed Sticky Notes removes itself to the Autorun in the registry
    Thus:
    If running, and you Shut Down/Log Off/Restart, Sticky Notes automatically load and all notes will reappear with your desktop (Position, Size and Colour of notes are also saved).

    Formatting
    Notes can be resized like any Window. Easiest is click-drag on any corner.
    Right-Click on any note for options to change Note colour.

    Ctrl+B Bold
    Ctrl+I Italics
    Ctrl+U Underline
    Ctrl+T Strikethrough
    Ctrl+Shift+L Bulleted List (Repeat to cycle through Bulleted/Numbered/Lettered/Roman)
    Ctrl+Shift+> Increase text size
    Ctrl+Shift+< Decrease text size
    (All of the above can be applied to selected text or to turn the formatting on/off as you type)
    Ctrl+MouseScrollWheel Increase/Decrease 'magnification' of a note.

    Images cannot be pasted/inserted, only text.


    To Run
    Click the Start Button, type Sticky, press Enter
    or
    Click the Start Button -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Sticky Notes

    You can pin it to the task bar at this point.

    Creating a shortcut

    Right-Click on Desktop -> Click New -> Click Shortcut -> Type StikyNot -> Click Next -> Type a name for the shortcut or accept the default and Click Finish (or just copy the shortcut from the Start Menu to your desktop)

    If I missed anything feel free to add it!

    Cheers,

    Nathan
