  1. Love my sticky notes!, had a small problem today - Please see idea below....

    Mistakenly double clicked an individual note, it filled my whole desktop screen and I was unable to minimize it and couldn't find out how? I could not make it smaller by grabbing the edges as it did not allow me to (as it was the full screen) - Did I miss this option in your help menu or is this possibly something you can add to the drop-down options in individual notes??

  2. Bullet tree in individual sticky notes

    At this moment there is only a single level bullet option. It would be handy to have at least a second level more.

    · First level bullet note.
    (space) · Second level bullet note.

  3. Copying text from a sticky note with Ctrl+C

    Copying text from a sticky note using Ctrl+C should work with pressing Ctrl+C once like in every other program. For some reason this has to be pressed twice to actually copy the text from the sticky note.

  4. Integration in all Microsoft ecosystem

    Sticky Notes can be a simple yet efficient tool for connecting all the Microsoft Ecosystem. Capturing idea is a huge problem inside Microsoft ecosystem. While capturing an idea or information, our mind should focus on what we are creating and how we are doing it. But Onenote takes too many clicks. Not only OneNote, but even word also takes too many clicks and has an organization of information problem. These sticky notes can solve this. Just like Onenote feeds in Outlook web, this can work on Word, Excel, Powerpoint and Onenote. Just 2 clicks and you can create or capture…

  5. post sticky notes to folders and files

    it would be super helpful if you could right click on a given file and add a sticky note to it. Is this already a function? if not, would it be possible?

  6. Sticky don't start after update 1909

    After win update 1909 have we at work had 2 computers that after some days Sticky won't start. That's a HUGE problem. IT dep helped to reinstall it but then all data was gone. (yes, we had done a print screen b4 update). I know where the sqlite datatfile is located. Can i just make a copy of it and then reinstall Sticky and copy the datatfile back again? Take a look at the design of the old ATnotes, that was a perfect "Sticky" prrogram.

  8. Programmatic access to sticky notes.

    It would be really nice if you exposed a public API for interfacing with the Sticky Notes application, so in the absense of implementing some of these features, we could just, in effect, extend the functionality of the app. For example, users are requesting a print feature, i.e. being able to print all of their notes at once. If we had even just basic access the app via a simple API, for example getting the title/id of every note and its contents, we could pipe that to our own print service, etc.

  9. Ability to Sort by 1st Word in IOS Onenote Phone App!

    I use the first word in a sticky note as a subject.
    In the Outlook Desktop Client, a column sort by subject field defaults to the 1st word in the sticky note as the subject. Nice, but the phone app defaults to the note creation date. Not so nice.
    Thanks for thinking about this.

  10. 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.

  11. Desktop should contain sticky notes as label

    There should be something in sticky notes that can be used to paste sticky notes directly on the desktop wall. like we use to paste our sticky notes on board or wall.
    That will look fancy.

  13. Make it a separate app instead of a OneNote afterthought

    If I didn't have to dink around through dumbed-down OneNote (or d-d ToDo, or d-d Planner), Sticky notes would capture quick notes across all my devices so I could put them in my tool of choice. See other ideas, but they are device specific.

  14. Please find a way to sort sticky notes so that you can ask the application to only open notes of a particular color.

    I use the different colors to categorize my notes, i.e. green for fitness information, blue for social media, etc. It would be nice to have the app only open certain colors because I don't need all of them all the time, and it would save time for me by saving time on closing out the ones I don't need.

  15. Hiding sticky notes when you share your screen!

    I give a lot of demos on systems and sometimes I need notes to remind myself what specific things I need to say and highlight when I am demoing that page on. It would be so extremely helpful if I was able to use a sticky note, share my screen, but only make the sticky note visible to me somehow not to others who are viewing my screen. Not sure if this is possible or if I am clear enough but I would love to explain more if you contact me.

  16. Have a hotkey / keyboard shortcut to bring all notes to the top

    Look at the Notezilla product by conceptworld. Have a keyboard shortcut to bring all notes to the top, so that you can quickly make an entry (a big idea, something to do later, whatever) and then get back to work.

  17. Windows information protection support

    Windows Store - Sticky Notes 3.7 and higher should support "Windows Information protection" / WIP policies.
    Like OneNote, Word, Edge, notepad and other applications.


    Currently, when Windows 10 device is Azure AD joined and WIP policy is applied. It is not possible to Sign in with private Microsoft Account, nor Organizational account.

    Error:
    We couldn't verify your sign-in info.

    We can't sign you in with this account because your device is configured for Windows Information Protection (WIP). Please try signing in with a another Microsoft Account. Error code 0x80070164

    Or:
    We can't connect to the server. Error code 0x80072EFD


    Please…

  19. Dock panel to desktop feature like OneNote docking

    OneNote allows to dock one view to the desktop.
    It would make Sticky notes more all time visible to follow and update by similarly having the panel docked to the desktop, nearly widget-like ready.
