Moving Sticky Notes to Another Windows 7 Box

I need to move my sticky notes from one machine to another. But there is no import and export buttons for me to click.

However, using Process Monitor I finally located my data and here is the tips,

  • The data file is %systemdrive%\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Sticky Notes\StickyNotes.snt
  • Note that this is the file name for my domain account, and I am not sure if data for local accounts are stored differently.

I simply copy this file to the new machine and open Sticky Notes from Start menu. Wow, they are there.

As Sticky Notes is a great tool to help you go green, I hope you find this post useful.
