    Now I've had my mac for quite some time but I have never been able to figure out the purpose of the stickies app. What I wanted to know is, if it is possible to have multiple stickies on your desktop at one time? If so, how do I apply this? Can the stickies float on your desktop, or do I use dashboard to get multiple stickies? I am quite confused with this one.

    If anyone could help, that would be awesome!

    Thanks in advance!!

    if you just go to file>new note it will produce a new sticky...you can move them around, change color, font etc etc,
    i have mine set to start at login.. pretty useful but somewhat redundant with the new note feature in 10.5 mail

    That's great, thank you. I can honestly say I didn't realize I could do such a thing. Unfortunately, I haven't upgraded to Leopard yet, even though I have it sitting here. I'm deciding on whether to wipe my mac entirely and do a clean install.

    I've been keeping doctor's appts. and all kinds of junk in a sticky for years. I keep it just over my hard drive icon. Double clicking the top bar shrinks it to a single line, same thing opens it. I couldn't live without it.

    I would suggest backing everything up and doing a clean install... seems to produce better results... at least it did for me....
