How to Use Windows 7's Sticky Notes

Would you like an easy way to write down a quick note and keep it in front of you without wasting a piece of a dead tree? Let's take a look at the Sticky Notes app in Windows 7 and how you can use it to its fullest potential.

Getting Started With Sticky Notes

If you've searched the Desktop Gadget Gallery for the Sticky Notes gadget from Windows Vista, you don't have to search any more. The Vista Gadget has been replaced in Windows 7 by the Sticky Notes application. You'll find it under Accessories in the start menu, or just type Sticky Notes in the Start Menu search.

Sticky Notes are great for jotting down some quick text you need to remember, like an address you receive over the phone or the items you need to pick up from the store on the way home. Here's how a default note looks: yellow with 11 point Segoe Print font.

You can easily change a note's color from the right-click menu.

If you paste text into the Sticky Note, it will maintain most of its original formatting. You'll notice a scroll bar on the right if there's more text than can be displayed on the screen; you can also drag the bottom right corner to resize the note to any size you want.

Click the plus sign in the top left corner to crate a new note, or click the x in the right corner to delete an existing note.

If you're not sure which device driver or update Windows just installed that might be causing you problems, you can view the list of installed updates. You'll see a list of updates and the dates they were installed here. If you want to work with a file in Windows, you'll have to save the file from your Windows file system with the save option. If need some help you can check softkeyhome to find windows product key online with the lowest price.

Windows will double-check that you want to delete the note; if you don't wish to see this message each time, check the Don't display this message again box.

All of your Sticky Notes are saved at:

%AppData%MicrosoftSticky NotesStickyNotes.snt

However, they're not stored in a standard format, so you can't overly use the data in the notes file. If you would like to copy your open notes to another computer, though, you could copy and replace this file on the other computer.

How to Use Cortana with a Local User Account in Windows 10

You've created a local account in Windows and you want to use Cortana. However, you need a Microsoft account to activate and use Cortana, but you don't want to convert your local account to a Microsoft one. What a dilemma.

Cortana uses and stores information about you through your Microsoft account. And, thanks to the recent Windows 10 update in November, there is a way to log in to your Microsoft account for Cortana only, while preserving your local Windows 10 account. You don't need to convert your local Windows account to a Microsoft one.

That means you'll still have to use a Microsoft account, but you won't have to use it system-wide. It isn't a perfect solution, but it'll do.

To log in to your Microsoft account for Cortana only, click in the Cortana search box on the Taskbar.

Click on the "Cortana can do much more" box at the bottom of the Cortana search panel.

Cortana tells you what type of information about you will be collected and used. Click "Sure" if you still want to let Cortana use your Microsoft account to customize searches for you.

Then, click "Sign in".

If you originally created your Windows account as a Microsoft account and then reverted to a local account, you'll see the following dialog box with your Microsoft email account listed. Click on your account to automatically log in for Cortana. This will not convert your local account back to a Microsoft account.

If you originally created your Windows 10 account as a local account, the Add your Microsoft account dialog box displays. If you don't have a Microsoft account, click "Create one" and follow the instructions on the dialog box. Otherwise, enter your Microsoft email address and password in the boxes and click "Sign in".

If you're not sure which device driver or update Windows just installed that might be causing you problems, you can view the list of installed updates. You'll see a list of updates and the dates they were installed here. If you want to work with a file in Windows, you'll have to save the file from your Windows file system with the save option. If need some help you can check softkeyhome to find windows product key online with the lowest price.

Microsoft will try to convince you to convert your local Windows 10 account to a Microsoft account. You don't have to do this to use Cortana. Instead of entering your current Windows password, click the "Sign in to just this app instead" link below the box. This dialog box will automatically close and you will be signed into your Microsoft account only for Cortana. Your Microsoft account will not be used by any other app or feature and your local account will stay local.

Once you're signed in, Cortana may try to convince you to get Cortana on your phone. If you don't want to do that right now, click "Not now" at the bottom of the Cortana pane.

Now, you're ready to use Cortana to not only search your apps and files on your computer but also search the web, create reminders and events, track flights, and more.

Cortana can be useful, but if you don't want the personal information about you to remain stored on your PC or in your Bing account, you can clear it. If you don't want to use Cortana at all, you can disable it.
