Just like those handy yellow sticky notes, Sticky Notes in Windows 7 lets you leave yourself little reminders. You can use sticky notes to keep track of your ideas, reminders and any other important information that you don’t want to forget.

Sticky notes in Windows 7 resemble standard yellow paper post-it notes. You easily change the color of a stick note using the steps described below:

  • Click the Start menu and click Sticky Notes. A yellow sticky note appears on your desktop.
  • Right click the sticky note and select one of the following colors: blue, green, pink, purple, white or yellow.
