Is there any way to stick notes to specific folders rather than getting to view them from Desktop?

Not with the included Sticky Notes app, but it's possible with something like Stickies:


  • Once on screen, stickies will remain where placed until closed, even through reboots
  • Stickies appearance can be customised; fonts, colours and buttons may be changed, and styles saved. Stickies can be resized
  • Stickies can store text or images
  • Stickies can snap to each other and to the sides of the screen to keep them neatly lined up
  • Stickies can be attached to a web site, document or folder so they only show when it's on screen
  • Stickies can be transferred from one machine to another either over a TCP/IP network connection, or by using an SMTP mail server or MAPI client:
    • Hierarchical friends list, which may be automatically transferred from other friends
    • Play a sound file on receive
    • Signature for transmitted or emailed stickies
    • Favourite friends, and custom lists can be made
  • Stickies can be hidden for a certain period, until a specified date and time, or to wake every day, week or month, to act as reminders
  • Stickies can have alarms set to ensure you notice them at a point you choose
  • International language, Unicode and RTL text support
  • Stickies works with Windows Vista and Windows 7
  • Stickies is small and simple, it writes to a single text file, and does not alter the registry
  • AD network administrators can use Group Policy to control settings
  • API to allow integration with other applications
  • ...and Stickies is completely free!

As mentioned above, stickies can be attached to a web site, document, folder or basically any app window:

Thank you, but I don't seem to be able to see my Stickies when I open the folder to which they were attached. – Babu James Mar 13 '13 at 14:30
The sticky's probably being displayed, but behind the folder window. Here's what I did: created a new sticky, then clicked the Toggle On Top arrow. and next I attached it to an open folder (C:\Windows in this case). Now even if I close the Explorer window, whenever I open C:\Windows directly or even navigate to it, the sticky immediately pops up. Try it and let me know. – Karan Mar 13 '13 at 18:40
