11 Useful and Free Sticky Notes (Sticky Pad) Software For Your Desktop

Looking for web-based To-do lists? Visit this list of the Best Online To-Do managers, alternatively also take a look at the list of Sticky notes  softwares/websites and To-Do-Lists softwares/websites.

I have been using Sticky pads to stick notes all over the computer so that I can remember things easily, but having a clumsy monitor does not help to focus on the task at hand.

In order to stay away from this mess I use a combination of Note taking software Evernote and a sticky pad software to stick notes to my desktop. The sticky notes software allows me to stick notes directly to my desktop so that I can view them there all the time (and using two monitors definitely helps :) )


Today I bring to you 11 Useful and Free Sticky Pad Softwares which will help you keep your monitor clean and clutter free. All of these softwares are absolutely free so you do not have to worry paying money to buy that sticky pad again.



PinNotes is the software I am currently using. It is a real simple way to created and store sticky notes on your desktop with options to customize each note window separately and support to add pictures, numbers, time/date etc.
