Features

  • Can move, resize and zoom
  • Custom colors
  • Auto startup
  • Support for high DPI screens and touch devices

Lack of features

Sticky Notes became trash with the August 2016 update of Windows 10, which turned it into a "modern" app, and added useless and suspicious features like synchronization and telemetry. Therefore...

  • Not a "modern" app: you can obliterate all Metro apps from your PC
  • No taskbar icon: notes actually stick to the desktop
  • No synchronization
  • No telemetry
  • Not even an auto updater
  • No botnet: it's open source, you can trust this application
  • And most importantly: no ugly Segoe Script font

Compatibility

  • Windows XP or newer
  • Any platform supported by Java SE 7 or newer

Usage

Import the projects into Netbeans.

_SETUP contains all the files used to build the Windows installer and the .deb package. To build the Windows installer, you'll need Inno Setup and launch4j.
