7 Sticky Notes
Video tutorial & screenshots
7 Sticky Notes can help you keep reminding notes and set alarms so that you never forget about important tasks and deadlines. The basic functions of creating a new note or setting an alarm are easily performed. The program starts automatically along with the system and stays hidden in the Tray.
From there, the notes are created on your desktop in a visual analogy to the way you stick notes to your fridge. Unfortunately, you cannot create a new note using the contextual menu that appears when you right-click on your desktop.
The appearance of the notes can be changed by personalizing their colors and fonts. Moreover, you can simply pick one of the available visual themes. Other advantages are that you can use formatted text or turn a specific note into a reminder by adding an alarm.
The application includes a Notes Manager, which allows you to organize your notes in a treelike structure. It lets you configure various desktops; thus, you can have different sets of notes according to your scenarios. In addition, you can also export individual notes or the complete database. What is more, you can synchronize your notes between various machines. Finally, the database can also be backed up.
As a whole, 7 Sticky Notes is a very useful application providing multiple advantages compared to Sticky Notes, a program that comes with most Windows installations. It will easily adapt to your level of expertise, so you can start using its basic functions and gradually move on to more complex operations.
