Allow Sticky Notes to run on tray instead of taskbar
As a program that usually runs all the time, it would make sense to hide the program icon on the tray instead of appearing on taskbar all the time.
Having a taskbar crowded with sticky notes makes both the taskbar & the sticky notes less convenient. 1 sticky note icon in the taskbar to represent ALL notes is sufficient. From there, the "open/view all notes" option makes more sense.

I always have 13 sticky notes on my desk and a lot of softwares & windows... This bug is really annoying, even more at work... :(
It's been a year, I hope to see this implemented soon.
Great idea. I'd add that if MS are going to do this, they should make sure that the application opens all previously open notes when it starts, so you can keep your notes set up and arranged the way you want.
This is an absolute must.
This is needed.
This is a must, I will not use it until it has the option to run in the system tray and not on the taskbar.
I prefer the program doesn't appear in taskbar

Every time there is an upgrade, the Sticky Notes settings become more ******** and annoying.
I totally agree with this suggestion and urge the creators to implement this ASAP!
I seem to have the opposite problem. I do not want the notes open unless I ask. Having them there ALL the time is problematic for me, and I find it annoying to have to quickly hide them on boot-up. Can't you include a choice in settings to keep them hidden unless called for from the task bar icon?
the changed behavior since v1903 to not group the sticky notes into one tab in the taskbar is very annoying.

Option to minimize to system tray so that it does not take valuable space in taskbar while still displaying note itself on desktop. Optional tray animations where allowed for time sensitive sticky note items.
I have 5 Sticky Notes open at all times. Before Win10 Vn 1903 the single taskbar icon made all 5 Notes minimise together and so kept the taskbar uncluttered ( I don't want to combine taskbar buttons). Please consider restoring previous behaviour or let sticky notes minimise to the tray. Thanks
I fully agree with Christian.
Because the programm "Sticky Notes" running most at all the time for me not visible in foreground and works for me as a reminder, i dont wont see it all the time in the taskbar. It can be really annyoing, if you have 3 monitors and a lot of programms working, while some space in the taskbar is "wasted" cause of "Sticky Notes".I would really appreciated it when you from Microsoft can please programming a new configurable setting, that we users can minimize "Sticky Notes" into the tray bar.Hopefully, thank you very much!

The clutter is even more visible if you use "never combine taskbar buttons"

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