    • Middle-Click to Open a New Note

      A middle-click on the taskbar icon should open a new note just like it opens a new window in Edge. This would make adding new notes a quick one click action no matter what state the app is in, especially for anyone that has it pinned to the taskbar.

      • Don't have it take up space in the taskbar

        It takes up space in the taskbar when I want it running in the background. Only have the create window appear in the taskbar.

        • Hyperlinks?

          I just started getting automatic hyperlinks in sticky notes. If they are going to be an option to use, please allow them to be removed too. Ex: The word "restock" sent me to a bing search result for the word, and hovering over it give me a stock price for some company I have never heard of. I want to remove that. The right-click menu should give that option...

            • minimize option

              I love that sticky notes stay on the desktop unless deleted but there should be a minimize option. the sticky note will become very small like an icon and when it is clicked on, it will become larger in size.

              • Forget about Sticky Notes

                Probably not what you wanted to hear... but why does Sticky Notes need to exist?

                Why do we need virtual post-its with such limited functionality? Does anybody seriously use it?!

                I'm a long-time user of Microsoft's products - but the insistence on giving us 15 different tools for virtually the same job can be infuriating. Stick this one in the bin, and focus your efforts on OneNote!

                • Allow options for formatting

                  it would be nice if i was able to format text by increasing and decreasing text size without the use of shortcut keys and also the abiltity to collate notes into sections or tab. if i was also able to title each sticky note (like a header) that would be nice

                  • Add the ability to create a custom sticker pack

                    Being able to create a personalized set of stickers from pictures uploaded in the app would be amazing.
                    It would be much easier to have a set of ready to use pictures directly on the app rather than having to switch back to a section that conteins them all or having to insert them manually every time!

                      • Sticky Notes must live in the Cloud!

                        What is the value of any information nowadays if it does not live in the cloud? This goes without saying on OneNote, that amongst tens of other reasons, having OneNote as a cloud service, accessible from anywhere, and recoverable etc is the most interesting feature it has.

                        Sticky Notes must become a Section in the Default OneNote, like Quick Notes, hence they would be an O365 account based, not a computer based.

                        else, what if I add a very important Sticky Note – Stick that I am supposed to watch and remember, and delete by mistake? it is gone.

                        • Always on top function

                          it doesn't work function like always on top.

                          If you have researched other competitor app, it always support this.

                          Hope to work in Sticky notes.

                          • Provide Mechanism for note position saving, and rearranging

                            Whenever I undock my laptop, I need to rearrange the location of my sticky notes. It's very annoying. It would be nice to have some kind of "layout" mechanism or way to use a third party tool to save the window positions.

                            As it stands right now, the sticky windows have no identifying way to "grab" them for repositioning or sizing by the Windows API. So no good way to programmatically manage their positioning.

                            • Allow export of stickies (csv? txt? xml?)

                              Allow an easy way to export stickies. Sure we can cut and paste, but it's just not conducive to backing up and restoring. Yes, we can backup ProgramData folder, but that doesn't allow you to restore individual stickies.
