  1. 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.

    • Decuple Stickynotes Mailbox requirement for o365 users\tenents.

      Not sure if this is a bug, or an oversite.

      My Org does not use Exchange 365 yet. However, we do use OneNote and OneDrive. Signing in to the StickyNotes client on Windows, fails because "there is no mailbox assigned to the user" If all data is stored in OneNote, why is the presence of an Exchange mailbox necessary?

      • Sticky Notes icon on Android home screen

        One thing I'd like to see is a link to sticky notes on my Android home screen so I don't have to open One Note to get to them.

          • It would be useful to add special characters like the "tick the box" symbol.

                • Restore all previous function

                  Please restore sticky notes to its previous usability. That means being able to change the type face and also being able to minimize individual notes.

                    • 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.

                        • 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.

                          • 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!

                            • 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.
