Instead of using Notepad or WordPad to make a note for yourself and risk missing it because the file is saved ‘out of sight’, Windows 10 allows you to attach a ‘sticky note’ to your desktop for an instant, obvious reminder. You can achieve this using Windows 10’s built-in program, ‘Sticky Note’.


Here’s how it works:

  • Go to the Start Menu.
  • Using the Search feature, type in ‘Sticky Note’.
  • Sticky Note should appear from the Start Menu.
  • Make a shortcut to it for easier accessibility in future.
  • Run the program, and leave a note for yourself on your desktop.
