Shirley’s found a program she likes, but doesn’t know where to find it. “I downloaded Windows 10 successfully, but it doesn’t have Sticky notes. A friend has windows 10 with sticky notes. Is there any way I can get them on my downloaded version?”

Sure Shirley. First I’m going to talk a little about Sticky Note for folks who aren’t familiar with it. Sticky notes is a great little app that comes built in to Windows 7, 8.1, 10.

It allows you to leave what look like little Post-It Notes on your desktop. The program opens to a blank note where you can write a reminder.


Just start typing.


Click the + sign to make another note.


Click the X sign to delete the note.


You can move your note anywhere you like on the desktop. You can make the size of the notes either smaller or larger by pulling the edges.


To minimize, right-click and choose minimize. You can click Sticky Notes on the taskbar to view your notes again.


When you shut down your PC, the notes will close with Sticky Notes, but they’ll be there when you open the program until you choose to delete them.

Finding Sticky Notes is simple. If you have Windows 7, 8.1 or 10, you have Sticky Notes. Just type Sticky Notes in your Windows search box and then click on the result.


Sticky notes is available in Windows 7, 8.1 and 10.
