    New Sticky Notes after big Aug update

    The major update has replaced the older version of Sticky Notes with a new one that incorporates interacting with Cortana (which I could care less about). However the size of each note is huge (about 4" x 4" on my monitor) and won't reduce any smaller.

    Does anyone know if it's possible to change this size so it's smaller??

    I did find the old version of StikyNotes.exe in the System 32 folder under Windows.old. Copied it to another location and ran it. It shows my notes in the much smaller display BUT I can add more notes using it but can't delete them so this makes the older version kinda unusable.

    Any options here?

    I can't answer re the built-in Win app, but if you want to try a 3rd-party app, I've been using Sticky Notes for a long time [currently Win10 AU] and recommend it highly. If it has the functions you want, give it a shot.

    I have been unable to get the notes smaller than around 3 inches wide.

    I have been using the Stickies program from Zhorn software for over 12 years. It is great!

    You can check it out at http://www.zhornsoftware.co.uk/stickies/

    This has worked from Win 98 through Windows 10. It is very flexible and customizable.

    4" was the smallest I could get.
