A. Windows 7 has some cool gadgets, and the sticky notes are one of the more useful. The sticky notes accept text and ink input and can be configured with different colors. They provide an easy way to make little notes to yourself on your desktop.
Sticky notes are available in the Accessories group. The feature's image is in %windir%\system32\StikyNot.exe.
Once the notes are running, you can create additional notes using the plus sign at the top left of an existing note. If you right-click a note, you can change its color. Notes can be resized, and if you look at the taskbar icon for sticky notes, you can read the notes.
There are several keyboard shortcuts to modify the text in the window, listed below.
|Ctrl + B||Bold toggle|
|Ctrl + I||Italic toggle|
|Ctrl + T|| |
|Ctrl + U||Underline toggle|
|Ctrl + Shift + L||Rotates through various list options, such as bulleted, numbered, and lettered|
|Ctrl + Shift + <||Decrease text size|
|Ctrl + Shift + >||Increase text size|
