Taking a cue from real-world Post-it notes, Stick provides an equivalent product for your computer desktop. A few differences make the program a valuable asset for any PC. The most noticeable is that notes, when closed, turn into tabs you can then append to the sides of your screen. This makes keeping your desktop tidy a snap. In addition to basic text notes, you also can create Explorer notes, which are actual Windows Explorer windows. You can navigate the file system from within these or even use them for Web browsing.
Each note features a variety of customization options such as window color, transparency, autohiding, and font choices. Though it does lack a few features of the more advanced sticky-note apps, we recommend Stick for its ease of use and excellent implementation of tabs.
Organize your desktop using screen tabs to access the Web, browse your hard drive or network, take notes and monitor RSS feeds. With Stick you can do all these things with easy-to-use but out-of-the-way tabs that dock to the sides of your screen. You can also browse a simple calendar and the QuickLaunch feature automatically searches your drive for applications that can then be found quickly just by typing a few letters of the app's name.
