Sticky Notes

Sticky Notes Freeware

SUMMARY: Add a freeware Sticky Notes application with many customization options and an optional alarm for each note.

Sticky Notes is a freeware Windows application from Igor Vigdorchik. You can add multiple resizable notes to your Desktop, and each note can have its own color, title color, alarm, transparency setting, category, and more. Notes can have multiple fonts, styles, sizes, colors, bulleted lists, and numbered lists. Notes can be made to appear on top of other windows, and you can "roll up" notes to save space on a crowded Desktop so only titles are shown.

Configurable options include the System Tray icon behavior, WAV file to play for alarms, default note display settings, data storage and One-Click Backup locations, and hotkeys for common tasks such as hiding or showing all notes.

Adding a note via Sticky Notes

Sticky Notes comes as a .ZIP file - just unzip the contents to a new directory and run StickyNotes.exe. It can be downloaded at the following site:
