Editors' Review

There is no imminent shortage of sticky notes apps for Windows. They come as desktop apps, gadgets, and add-ons. Most are free; some are portable. Some merely provide a quick-and-easy way to pin reminders to the desktop. Others try to replicate the look of paper sticky notes but with enhanced features. That describes 7 Sticky Notes, a free sticky notes program that uses shading and highlighting to give its notes a realistic 3D look.

The program gave us two installation options, Normal or Portable. We chose the standard installation, but Sticky Notes would make a great portable tool, combining versatility with a small footprint. Sticky Notes opened with two associated windows: the note field, which displayed an intro message, and the Note Configuration Window, a compact dialog with tabs for quickly configuring Fonts, Style, and Alarms, the latter with a Sleep Setup option. We typed a note using the default font, Segoe Print, which resembles handwriting, only legible. Clicking the green check mark saved our changes, closed the Configuration Window, and rolled up our note to a minimized size displaying the date and time it was created and the first line of our message. Right-clicking the note let us edit, resize, copy, or delete it, among other choices. The program's system tray icon serves as central command. Clicking the icon changed color and displayed or hid the notes on the desktop. We could also open the Notes Manager, a tree view-based tool, and the General Settings, a much more detailed and extensive properties sheet that let us configure not only how our notes looked and behaved but also set up synching and other options. Clicking the Help button opened a Web-based help site, including screenshots. The keyboard shortcuts proved the fastest way to do things, once we'd learned them.

Some sticky notes apps stand apart from the crowd. That's the case with 7 Sticky Notes, which has plenty of options but is extremely easy to use. We especially like the ability to show and hide our notes with a click, which let us use all the notes we needed without totally obscuring our desktop.

"Very Easy to Use!"

January 31, 2014  |  By Imogen7Ryan

 |  Version: 7 Sticky Notes 1.9

Pros

No extensive user guide. Simple to follow instructions. Extremely user friendly. Unbelievable how easy it is to edit notes. So easy to add an alarm, change fonts & size - all thanks to a small, easy to understand, a little pop-up window which goes away once you are happy with your editing. Plus resizing notes are easy too.

Cons

As a previous reviewer said; it is a tiny bit slow, not overly, just slightly; NOT to the point that you want to tear your hair out!! Just a few seconds delay. (But it's totally worth it!)

Summary

Compared with the complicated disaster I encountered with another 'highly recommended' Sticky software, this is a breeze in comparison. Much better than Windows built in sticky app, more configurable and is sure to help immensely with productivity - and to remember stuff knowing this software will remind you!

"No instant edit, wont collapse easy, clogy and annoying"

December 15, 2013  |  By mcmaker

 |  Version: 7 Sticky Notes 1.9

Pros

Does what it says, but makes a simple process burdensome with unecessary additions [try modelling after windows sticky notes, simple as it could be, and that will be good, add sync if possible] alow instant edit, and collapse notes at a touch, remove all aditions that delays spontaneous inputs.

Cons

Very annoying, makes a simple process burdensome with unecessary additions. Very usser unfrindly, no instant edit, need to save notes, and once done cannot edit instantly, so unintuitive, I doubt if the developers uses this thing, if so he should realise the power of simple sticky notes, not some evernote imitation, or another word dic, just addd an edit button to akll other senseless aditions, and unecessary things.

Summary

Thinking of an option, dont mind gettina a paid option, the only good thing about this is it can be organised in a folder unlike windows sticky notes, but sticky notes beats this hand down in functionality.

"Good Stuff, But ..."

May 06, 2013  |  By metrobiz

 |  Version: 7 Sticky Notes 1.9

Pros

Does what I need, a W-XP desktop sticky note with some nice, simple extra features. Like the shortcuts & transparency selectables.

Cons

Don't know if this is CNET or 7Sticky, but even deselecting all optional download add-ons & toolbar junk, the download still downloaded & installed without permission "toparcadehits" (toparcadehits.com) into both the computer Program Files & Chrome Extensions. Had to manually de-install (Control Panel > Add-Remove Programs) & restart to (hopefully) get rid of the schlitz, & then DELETE from Chrome Extensions (manually). Nasty sprap.

Summary

The 7StickyNotes themeselves, so far, I like just fine. Clean, lite, does what it's supposed to. Seems deserving of its good CNET rating.

"Work fine for me"

January 31, 2013  |  By remmeler

 |  Version: 7 Sticky Notes 1.9

Pros

I use it just to keep a sticky note on my Desktop in Windows 8. When my system comes up it is automatically placed in the same position on my desktop without me having to load it. A side benefit is that because it is loaded automatically as a program on my Desktop, it causes my Windows 8 to open directly on my Windows 8 Desktop and not on the Start/Metro screen. At least it is a benefit for me.

Cons

Automatically causing Windows 8 to go directly to Desktop could be a disadvantage for some people

"A must-have personal utility"

November 08, 2012  |  By jwojewidka

 |  Version: 7 Sticky Notes 1.8

Pros

- Easy to get started
- Focused on the right things
- Not buggy
- Easy to configure
- Incredible price :-)
- Not just handy, but indespensible

Cons

Just suggestions:
- Would help if there was a way to lock into position individual notes on the desktop
- Might not be necessary to have the config box pop-up when doing simple content edits. The UE is overwhelmingly skewed toward content edits once the note is created. Can't imagine many people reformatting after a note is started.
- Might provide options for the note sizes to snap-to certain default sizes. That would make it easier to position on the desktop. I *always* make them the same size, roll-up when done and lay them out vertically, and from left to right.

Summary

MSFT should buy 7 Sticky Notes and include it all Win versions. Their solution is totally inadequate.
