Don’t know about you, but I use sticky notes all the time. I currently have 37. I have URL’s that I frequently need to copy, attachment code that I frequently have to add, things I need to remember (like our Mac Users Groups PO Box number), and other odds and ends.
Stickies comes with your operating system. You will find it in the Applications Folder. If you want to save it to your Dock, grab it from the Applications Folder and drag and drop it to your Dock. If you just want to open it occasionally, get it from Spotlight by entering the first few letters of the word and then selecting it when it shows up.
To create a Stickies note the normal way, you open the app and select File > New Note. A blank notes opens and you enter whatever you want, as much as you want.
Enter your info and double click the dark portion at the top to “roll it up”. You don’t have to “save it”. It saves automatically. There are six color options found under the Color option in the menu.
That’s the usual method. Here is a shortcut.
Highlight text that you want to add to a Sticky. Can be from the web or a document or an email. If photos are included as part of the block of selected text, they will be included in the note you create, but the layout probably will not.
