A monitor filled with stickers is a common thing for many users. If a person spends the lion's share of time in front of a computer, then it is quite natural that he places reminders right at the workplace. However, starting with Windows 10, such notes can be made directly on the PC using the standard built-in service. The Notes app on the Windows 10 desktop allows you to create an unlimited number of notes, edit them, format text, create lists, or create quick notes. Such a service is convenient and easy to use, but is not in demand due to the fact that it is practically unknown.
How to find the Notes service?
You can create a note on the Windows 10 desktop through the service by launching it through the Start button, which in the 10th version of the OS has taken the form of a company logo. In the start menu, you need to find the “Standard” category in the “Programs” subdirectory, there will be the “Notes” service. In later versions of Windows 10, the program has changed its name to Sticky Notes and is now located in the root directory of the Start menu. In any case, when you clicka yellow sticker will appear on the program icon on the desktop, after filling it in, the number of notes can be multiplied and the information formatted.
The user can change the size and color of the sticker by dragging the edge of the note or selecting the corresponding item in the menu on the right mouse button. In later versions, Notes on the Windows 10 desktop received a toolbar that contains all the functions. But some users continue to use hotkeys because it's faster and easier. Some hotkeys "Notes" were adopted from Microsoft Office. So, for example, bold selection can be made by pressing Ctrl + B, italics - Ctrl + I.

A relatively simple and accessible program turned out to be very useful, so its functionality is expanding.
Analogues on the Internet

Often they differ from the original by the presence of a more extensivecustomization and authoring features, such as grouping the same stickers into separate subcategories.
