Sticky Notes      (July 2007)

Sticky Notes provide an easy means of putting simple text notes on the desktop. Additional features include associating a date/time with each note, then alerting the user when that date/time occurs. Early warnings are sometimes provided, as are the means of launching other programs at the designated date/time.
