    Thanks Andy, for this article. While, I don’t need a Sticky Post attachment, I love reading your articles. I click on the references and simply continue to learn more about the program or issue you are writing about. Using Sticky Notes now is one of those programs, where I truly miss Win 7 Pro. I happen to like the older Sticky Notes that I had with Win 7 Pro. It was easier to use. However, I do have my Sticky Notes back. :O)

  2. Yes, in Windows 10, the desktop app has been replaced by a Windows Store app.
