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.

Overall a simple and easy solution to make those sticky notes less cluttering.

  • Great post i use Stickypad on my computer they come in handy for reminding me of things i need to do.

  • What about Evernote? It’s a whole desktop app but it’s incredibly robust.

  • Great list!! , I use everyday!

  • Now, what I *really* need is a similar list, but for Linux, more specifically Ubuntu. Although I have no choice but to use this inferior, pay-for, operating system at work, I run completely free at home, using Linux all the time.

  • I’d rather stick to my USB storage, which is fingerprint-based, and works under all operating systems that support both fat32 and USB storage. This makes my protected information fully transportable, better protected, and completely OS-independent. As a plus, I don’t even need to install software to be able to un-protect using my finger. It’s called Stealth MXP , from MXI.

    Tried both StickyPad and Stickies. After a few notes, I like Stickies.

    Very useful list! Thanks! But I can add one more program for creating quick sticky notes. It's Pinoteo – pinoteo.com. It's organized like digital board where notes can be sticked.

    I have students who submit online assignments to me.
    I need a stickie that I can write feedback notes on, send the assignment back to the student WITH the sticky visible by the student.
    This allows a ‘virtual’ experience when I speak with the student live on the phone – this would be extraordinarily time and cost efficient.
    Do any of your applications support this idea?

  • Very Useful! asked my team to start using this !

    T notes looks nice. Would it be fair to say that this software is for very small sized businesses and households? There are about 30 of us in our company and we use collaborative software to organise ourselves. It works very well. There’s an obvious improvement in everything since we started to use it. Choosing which software was not easy and I’m sure there are many more collaborative softwares around than sticky note pad softwares. We ultimately chose Dooster. I might recommend stickynote pad software to my mum though.
