    Hi all,

    Is there a good app or something in Windows 10 that I can use that lets me create a note/reminder/etc and post it to my desktop, so whenever I open my laptop it is there. Then once I have done whatever it is I need to do, I can remove it.

    Thanks

    Sticky notes. Should be installed already and stays on your desktop until you delete it.

      For reminders, use the calendar, which you access by clicking on the clock in the bottom-right of the screen, then clicking on the date you want.

      For notes, use OneNote. Yes, you have to click something to see it, but tuff. What you put there will be available on any device you've signed into your Microsoft account with.

      If clicking is too much effort, I suggest you sack it all off and get an old-fashioned diary, notebook, and pencil.

      I thought you meant an actual post-it note. Context: I have a colleague who is the least computer literate working adult I have ever met. Her Email folder actually is a perspex pocket wallet into which she puts print-outs of Emails she considers important enough to save and I have before now caught her copying by hand an excel spreadsheet: had drawn a grid on her A4 pad and was 'inputting' the values.
