Create desktop sticky notes with MemoMe

Format text, add images, and more with this flexible program.

We all know how useful those little yellow sticky notes can be, and there are plenty of virtual versions that bring the concept of sticky notes to your computer desktop. MemoMe is one of the more feature-packed programs of this sort that we've encountered. With options for formatting text and even adding images, we think it's a great choice for anyone who needs an easy way to keep track of ideas, reminders, and so on.

The program has a predefined keyboard shortcut that opens a new note. At the top of each note, a small toolbar lets you change the note's color, set it to always be on top, roll it up so that only the title is showing, move it to the archives, or delete it. A slider along the bottom of each note adjusts transparency, and notes can easily be resized by dragging the bottom left corner. Adding an image to a note was a simple matter of dragging and dropping.

MemoMe's options menu can be accessed from its icon in the system tray, and there are plenty of ways to configure it, with settings that include autosave, automatic minimizing, the brightness of the color palette, and the font. The program's built-in Help file is fairly brief, and we only figured out how to add images to our notes by trial and error, but the program is generally pretty easy to use. Overall, we think that MemoMe is an extremely useful and flexible choice for creating desktop sticky notes, and we recommend it.

MemoMe installs a desktop icon without asking and leaves a folder behind upon removal.
