  1. My Windows 7 laptop’s motherboard just died on Black Friday. I bought a new laptop that same day which is running Windows 8. No sticky notes! I actually used them a lot on my old computer. Is there a way for the sticky notes to be put on the desktop as opposed to just the start screen? I’ve been doing searches online about it with no luck. Thanks!

  2. I have windows 8 pro and it comes with sticky notes…hover on the right corner of the screen and type in “search” everything you’re looking for
