Creating Sticky Notes

What you’ll learn

Hi there! In this short article, we’re going to cover:

Ready? Let’s dive in.

Create and edit sticky notes

  1. Navigate to the web desktop in which you want to create a new sticky note.
  2. Click on the Quick Actions button on the top menu.
    Alternatively, you can right-click with your mouse on the background area of the web desktop (not on files and folders).
  3. Click on New Sticky Note. A new sticky note will appear on the web desktop.
  4. Optional – in the Title field, give the sticky note a title that describes it.
  5. Optional – in the Content field, write the contents of your sticky note.

    You can insert external links in sticky notes, but because a sticky note is meant for plain text, the link will not become a hyperlink. In case you want to add a convenient shortcut to another website, learn more about Creating External Shortcuts.

  6. Optional – express yourself by giving the sticky note a custom color! You can pick a color by clicking the small color boxes at the bottom.
  7. Any time you’d like to edit the content of the sticky note, simply choose the desired field and enter new content.

Move and organize sticky note

You can always move sticky notes around, and organize your web desktop however you want to.

  1. Locate the sticky note that you’d like to move.
  2. Hover with your cursor over the sticky note until you find a spot where the cursor changes.
  3. Left-click and hold the sticky note, drag it to the new place you want it to be in, and drop it there!

Fold and unfold sticky notes

Folding sticky notes means that they will still be displayed on the web desktop, but in a more compact way. This is useful if you want to keep the web desktop clean, and especially useful if you have many sticky notes.

  1. Locate the sticky note you’d like to fold.
  2. Click on the Fold button in the top left corner of the sticky note. The sticky note will fold, and only its title will be visible.
  3. To unfold the sticky note, simply click on the Open button in the top left corner of the sticky note. The sticky note will unfold back to its full size.

Delete and hide sticky notes

You always have the option to delete sticky notes, or, you can choose to hide them temporarily until you reload the page.

  1. Locate the sticky note you’d like to delete or hide.
  2. Click on the Delete button on the top right corner of the sticky note. A prompt will open up asking how you’d like to proceed.
  3. If you’d like to delete the sticky note, click Yes.

    Deleting a sticky note is irreversible. Proceed with caution!

  4. If you’d like to hide the sticky note until you reload the page, click on No, hide it until reload.
