Editors' Review

+

Take down all those annoying yellow reminder papers off your office wall and keep them neatly organized on your computer desktop. Simple Sticky Notes lives up to its title by providing a simple way of reminding yourself of important notes.

This free program embeds itself in the system tray and offers very little beyond the capability to make and sort notes, which is perfectly fine with us. From the tray, users create a new note, which pops up as a yellow sticky note. However, this one can have its color changed and its transparency adjusted thanks to the pull down menu at the top of the note. The size can also be adjusted on the note, but that's the end of the formatting options.

The tray menu gives users the opportunity to show all notes and sort them to stay organized. While the notes aren't automatically stacked on top of one another, but staggered, this is still a great way to look at notes that have been minimized and forgotten. While we would have liked to have seen an alarm system like some other sticky note programs provide, we have no complaints with Simple Sticky Notes' straightforward system and its fine way of keeping notes for free.

"Seems pretty decent to me."

 |  Version: Simple Sticky Notes 3.2.3

Pros

Contrary to what saywardc said (and I was actually concerned about what he said because I didn't want any problems with this install) I had no issues with this whatsoever.

I am running Windows 10 (not Windows 10 Preview) and this installed just fine for me. I saw no prompts for additional software or anything else and after this installed I went immediately to my Programs and Features (Add/Remove Programs area) and saw nothing else having been installed with it, so I was quite relieved.

This seems pretty decent so far, more advanced than the Microsoft's built-in Sticky Notes app and I have had no problems with it as of yet.

Cons

None as of this time.

Summary

This seems like a pretty decent and helpful little program. It is of course more advanced than Microsoft's Sticky Notes app but in addition to that, this doesn't require an annoying tab that always has to be opened on the taskbar like Microsoft's did! Gah! that bugged me so much and it is honestly what me me decide to look for a replacement program/app.

I am only giving it a 3 star rating right now (read: neutral) because I just installed this and would prefer more time in using it before I give a final verdict.

"GOOD LUCK TRYING TO UNINSTALL--"

January 08, 2016  |  By saywardc

 |  Version: Simple Sticky Notes 3.2.3

Pros

I see no pros with this program

Cons

Sticky notes would not run on my windows 7 machine. I tried running as administrator, no luck. I chose to uninstall it with its prepackaged uninstaller-- and couldn't.
The thing was stuck on my machine. It kept saying there was an instance of the program open that had to be closed before it could be uninstalled. ALT+ SPACE didn't show any programs. Task Manager couldn't shut it down either, because of this phantom running program. Tried rebooting and not clicking on the program, still, an instance of the program running, despite not having clicked it. Upon further inspection, it also downloaded something called "Desk Bar".

HOW I REMOVED IT:
Start
Search bar
Type: msconfig
Click msconfig
Click Startup
Scroll down to "Simple Sticky Notes"
Uncheck the box
Scroll down to "Deskbar"
Make sure the box is also unchecked
Restart your computer
Start
Control Panel
Add or Remove Programs
Remove "Super Sticky Notes" and "Desk Bar"

Hope this helps!

Summary

Program doesn't work. Headache to remove. Downloads programs you don't agree to.
