This is a handy and lightweight software tool that allows you to create virtual sticky notes and place them anywhere on your desktop. The program allows you to control all aspects of your notes, like their background and foreground colors, their font, their size, and their transparency level. You can also group your sticky notes into notebooks, for a better and easier organization.

Unlike most programs, Simple Sticky Notes does not offer you a proper interface. Instead, the program installs an icon into your system's tray area. You can then create new sticky notes in a really easy and fast way either from this icon or by using the configured keyboard shortcuts. Once you create a note, you can edit its title, type/paste its body, and drag the note around your desktop to the position that is most convenient for you. You can also minimize or even hide your notes to save desktop space and to avoid creating chaos on it.

Every single note allows you to display two pop-up menus, from where you can perform tasks such as setting the note's background color, its transparency level, its font, and its size, among others. There are also commands to share your note using Facebook or Twitter, to send it by e-mail, to print it, to insert bullets, and to set the line spacing. But one of the most helpful features of the program is, undoubtedly, its ability to add alarms to your notes. You can activate an alarm for a note at a specified date and time, and select a repetition mode (once, weekly, monthly, or yearly). You can also select a sound to be played, though you will need to download these sounds from the Simple Sticky Notes website previously.

In a nutshell, Simple Sticky Notes is handy app that allows you to create virtual notes and "stick" them on your desktop, just as if they were real ones. The program is full of interesting features and you can use it totally free of charge.

Guest I did not download anything because this site is utterly confusing cluttered with download buttons with hidden adverts and offers.
