Stickies 7.1d is a program developed by Zhorn Software. Upon installation, it defines an auto-start registry entry which allows the program run on each boot for the user which installed it. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The main program executable is stickies.exe. The software installer includes 8 files and is usually about 1.59 MB (1,668,345 bytes). In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 7 (SP1) as well as Windows XP. While about 54% of users of Stickies come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and United Kingdom.

I have stickies on my desktop and it works great I tried to put it on my mac on the windows side and no matter what I do it will not display on my mac/parallels windows 7 laptop like it does not my windows 7 dell desktop. I understand how to install, and how to copy the items from the dell desktop and put it in my laptop but they will not show on the desktop. I love stickies and would love to use them on mac/parallels window 7 or even windows 8 I have both on my mac/parallels
