Create Electronic Sticky Notes In Outlook


Q. I love those clever Post-It notes. I know there are computer applications that produce electronic Post-Its, however, I’m not anxious to add any more programs to my computer. Does Windows have anything like that built in?

A. Yes, they are in Outlook, and they are very handy for jotting down questions, ideas or reminders because they can be moved around and pasted on top of any application’s screen or even tucked away and hidden.

To create a note, click on the File, New and then on Note . That will bring up this blank note:

Just type your message inside the note. When finished, click on the X in the upper-right corner.

You can store them, copy them and even attach a Note icon above your Outlook toolbar for quick access. Right-click on the note, and you’ll see other options—such as changing its color, font and even storing it under various categories.
