Sticky Notes is a small application on Windows 10 that you may not know or overlook, but is a powerful tool to assist you in scheduling your day with ease.
This application will allow you to make notes clearly on the desktop. Here’s what you need to know to use Sticky Notes :
1. Open the application :
- The first thing you need to do to use Sticky Notes is to know where the application is located. To search for apps quickly, you can use Cortana by entering the keyword “Sticky Notes”, or say “Hey Cortana, launch sticky notes”.
- You can also find the application in the Start Menu by going to “All Apps”, and dragging down the “Windows Accessories” section.
2. Add a new note :
- When you launch the application for the first time, Sticky Notes will introduce you to a yellow square like memo pads. This is not a note-taking application designed just like OneNote, but aimed at short, quick reminders of the day.
- To add a new note is easy. Just hit the “+” sign in the upper left of the application, and a new note will appear. Just repeat until you have all the necessary reminders. Also, to create a new note, you can right-click on the taskbar icon and select “new note”, or use the Ctrl + N key combination.
- You need to keep the application open so that your notes appear on the screen.
3. Location :
- As with traditional stickers, you can also place them anywhere you want. Just drag and drop, you can select notes and move them around the screen. Click on the crimson gold stripes on the top and drag the notes everywhere
4. Custom colors :
- Your note pads will be the default yellow. However, you can change the color of the sticker by right-clicking and choosing the color. This is useful when you want to highlight a note, or split into different groups.
5. Delete notes :
- Once you have done so, you can delete the job from the screen by pressing the small “x” button, or by using Ctrl + D. You will receive a confirmation dialog for deleting your note.
- If you’re a busy person, or want to streamline your workflow, Sticky Notes is a quick and easy way to keep reminders right next to you.
