Oliver Krautscheid rates Sticky Notes Software 4 out of 5 stars - Some Pros and Cons:

  • Easy to use
  • Rich-text editing (format your text)
  • Insert links into your notes
  • Create ordered lists
  • Synchronize notes with Microsoft Outlook
  • Archive for old sticky notes
  • Search sticky notes archive
  • Add sticky note to ALT-Tab Switch
  • Hide sticky notes
  • Low-weight software
  • Change sticky notes background color

Sticky Notes Software Windows 7

You will have to get used to moving the sticky notes software via CTRL + Left Mouse. You’ll also have to enable formatting first and change the annoying yellow background, but other than that you’ll love this software.

You can change the background of the sticky notes software by clicking on the paint bin. You can also change the background color of the text line (don’t confuse the two)

Unhandled exception errors
I did run into a few unhandled exception errors on Windows 7 64-bit. I’ll try to contact the developers. If they could fix this this software could be a valuable tool.

    ************** JIT Debugging **************
    To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
    application or computer (machine.config) must have the
    jitDebugging value set in the section.
    The application must also be compiled with debugging

    For example:

    When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
    will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
    rather than be handled by this dialog box.
