Win 11 keep Stickies running in notification area Empty Win 11 keep Stickies running in notification area

Mon Jul 08, 2024 3:40 am
I can pin Stickies to task area but I don't want to take up that real estate. I have put the shortcut in the Startup folder and it will start when I start the computeri. But if close a Stickie to get it off the taskbar, it closes the program instead of leaving the icon in the notification area like it does in Win10. How do I keep it running in the background so I can just righ?click on the icon in the notification area and choose (for example) New Note or Manage Notes, or Hide or whatever?

I guess you have the taskbar button enabled ? Try disabling the setting , you will only then have the icon in the notification area .

Thank you so much. I'd looked at that so much and was totally "blind" to that saying task bar vs notifications. It took a fresh set of eyes, and when I tried unclicking that on faith in your answer, and rebooted, everything then worked as I wanted it to.
