Using Sticky Notes

You can use Sticky Notes to write a to-do list, jot down a phone number, or anything else that you'd use a pad of paper for. Sticky Notes can be used with either a Tablet PC and tablet pen, or with a standard keyboard. To write a note using a tablet pen, simply start writing on the note where you want the link to appear. To type a note, click where you want the text to appear, and then start typing.
