Download Stickies v8.0a (installer and portable)

Posted In Portable apps, Utilities - By Techtiplib on Monday, June 23rd, 2014 With No Comments »

Stickies is a lightweight and free system tool which helps you to write and leave yellow notes to your monitor. Stickies will never support animated dancing figures, or play “Greensleeves”. They are instead yellow rectangular windows onto which you can put some text notes. Once created, they will stay on screen until you take them away.
