Description (of the application) :

Stick a text note to a window of program or document. The note shows only on that window and moves with it.

Press hotkey Win+n on a program or document window to stick a note to it. Right click on tray icon and select Settings, to define the hotkey and other values.

Benefits (of using it) :

I use many programs which has one good feature, which I like, compare to others. Now it so happens that the developer of the program names the exe in a small way. If it is a portable then it is near to impossible for me to find out the program whose that feature I remember and need it.

Also it may so happens that I found a 6 month old program on my computer and do not remember what feature is better in it, or did I even liked it.

I need some sort of note to put against each program where I mention which feature I like and can use in future.

I searched but the available free ones could not do the job satisfactorily.

I developed Stick A Note.

Anti-Virus reports malware (what to do?) :

Delete the exe and it's folder. There is nothing we can do as this is false alert and we do not have resource to request all Anti-Virus companies to update their database. Similar problem is faced by small developers worldwide, check below links,

Freeware (why?) :

As a developer, we work for commercial ventures in our day jobs, and code something more personally interesting in our spare time. We get more pleasure in making the application, which in turn helps us in our day to day activity and may also benefit others. We use freeware software made by other developers, so we feel happy if we are able to make small contribution to this freeware community.

Hope you will find this software useful.
