Instead of using Notepad or WordPad to make a note for yourself and risk missing it because the file is saved ‘out of sight’, Windows 10 allows you to attach a ‘sticky note’ to your desktop for an instant, obvious reminder.
You can achieve this using Windows 10’s built-in program, ‘Sticky Note’. Here’s how it works:
- Go to the Start Menu.
- Using the Search feature, type in ‘Sticky Note’.
- Sticky Note should appear from the Start Menu.
- Make a shortcut to it for easier accessibility in future.
- Run the program, and leave a note for yourself on your desktop.
