Sticky Notes in Windows 7 - where are the files actually stored, ie, how can I move the content to another computer?

All notes are stored in one file:

%AppData%\Microsoft\Sticky Notes\StickyNotes.snt

Note that this isn't a text file, and it contains both current notes and vestiges of old notes; i.e. it's not exactly useful for sharing stuff.

Thank you. This worked for me, I simply copied the file from the location on the source computer into the same location on the destination computer (overwriting the old file) –  keithwarren7 Jan 27 '10 at 23:52
    
I used this technique to copy from my old Windows 7 computer to my new Windows 8 computer and it worked, so I guess the format is compatible/unchanged. Cool. –  Chris Aug 21 '12 at 18:34
    
I think you missed out the Roaming %AppData%\Roaming\Microsoft\Sticky Notes\StickyNotes.snt. Anyway that's not difficult to find where only got 3 folders in %AppData% :) –  yancyn Aug 16 '13 at 1:54

appdata\roaming\microsoft\sticky notes\stickynotes.snt

At least in Win 7, you must run Sticky Notes first to create the directory and file. This is a hidden directory.

Copy and paste, and the next time you run Sticky Notes your old notes will appear.

In Windows 7, notes are stored in C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Sticky Notes\ folder in StickyNotes.snt file. This file can be copied to a different profile in the same machine or to different machines.

For Windows 7 either 32 or 64 bit OS it is stored in the following path (replace username with actual username)

c:\users\***username***\appdata\roaming\microsoft\sticky notes\stickynotes.snt

Copy the file and paste in to the other user's profile.
