If you need to post quick notes on your desktop, you have quite a few programs to choose from. My personal pick is hott notes. Hott notes has been around for a long time and has continued to improve with each version. This may or may not be the best sticky notes program, but it does have one feature that would make it my choice. Hott notes is now available in a portable version.
Here’s a screenshot from the website:
You can change the colors, fonts, titles, add pictures, to-do lists and more. Here’s a brief list of other features.
â€¢ Note types – Message, List, Scribble
â€¢ Scribbles draw your own images
â€¢ Wastebasket just like Windows Trash Bin
â€¢ Archive notes store them away
â€¢ Backup notes keep them safe
â€¢ Restore notes from Wastebasket or Archive
â€¢ Import notes from Backup files
I like the portable version, which I can take with me on a flash drive to use on any Windows PC. It’s offered as a ZIP file and can be extracted to any location.
Here are 11 more sticky note programs. If you need a sticky notes program that can be used on multiple operating systems, such as Mac or Linux, you might like to try GloboNotes, which runs on any computer with Java 6 installed on it. Another popular sticky program is called Stickies, and I’m still waiting for a portable version of it that actually works.

Techie Buzz Verdict:
Hott notes is a good way to keep track of small bits of information. Just like the real world sticky notes, they will keep you from forgetting important events or information. The only lack I’ve found so far, is that you can’t paste images into these, even though you can draw your own using the Scribbles note type.
