Sticky Notes is a part of Microsoft Windows from Windows XP tablet edition. Easy software to put sticks with notes on Windows desktop and replace paper ones.

A typical sticky note contains information written on a small piece of colored paper that is then "stuck" to a document. Digital sticky notes provide similar functionality for electronic documents, but with the added flexibility to include many other types of content such as typed text, handwritten notes (for example, Tablet PC "ink" strokes), or Web links.
