  1. Jack says:

    i don’t have sticky notes in my system32 folder

  2. Graham says:

    %windir%system32stikynot.exe isn’t where the sticky notes app runs from in Win 10 (maybe this change was from a recent update). MS now class it as a ‘Windows App’ which sits in C:Program FilesWindowsApps, a folder which is hidden by default and takes a fair amount of hoop-jumping to gain any degree of read/write access to. Microsoft.StickyNotes.exe runs from a subfolder in there, creating shortcuts to this fail with a message about needing to be run from an App folder. Not worth the effort.

  3. Gary Cunningham says:

    This information is outdated. StikyNot.exe is no longer in the System32 folder. As of the Windows 10 Anniversary Editing, it is now in the heavily protected C:Program FilesWindowsApps folder.

    There is no Sticky Notes shortcut automatically created in Windows 10, unless you manually create one, and know how to do it.

    I want sticky notes NOT to open when I boot up.
    I only want to see notes when I click on the sticky notes icon in my taskbar.
    Win10

  9. Jennifer Thomas says:

    Since I use Stickies to remind me of future tasks, it’s important that they open automatically … what good it a reminder that doesn’t show!?!

  13. Irudes says:

    I can’t find the path of sticky note. What should I do?

  14. Paulo says:

    Thanks for the tip. I used the shortcut on startup

  15. Raechel says:

    If you have the sticky notes tierd can you get them to open in the same order? I always have to rearrange them every morning

  16. General Ludd says:

    You put a physical sticky note somewhere you can see it, to remind you of something. Why would you not do the same with the digital variety? If you can remember to open the programme, you will likely remember what you had written on it anyway.
