I want to open this file on my Windows 7 pro but the computer says it can't open it! Why? I'm looking for my Sticky Notes cause I need to find some lost sticky info.

Sorry, Moab but none of this helps. The PC article is not clear. –  verve May 19 '12 at 8:16
"The PC article is not clear" neither is your question –  Moab May 19 '12 at 14:16

I think that the best way to open StickyNotes.snt file is with Microsoft Word. Just right click on the .snt file and then open with Microsoft Word. At the end of the Word Document you shall see your note.

You can't open your Sticky Note file by double clicking on it because by default there is not a program associated to open .snt files.

Try opening it with Windows Notepad (or another text editor of your choice, e.g. Notepad++); Open Notepad then use the file menu (File > Open > browse to your .snt file)


Open notepad then drag and drop the .snt file onto the notepad window.

Once it is open, use the Find function (Ctrl + F) to search for part of your missing note.
