We all love those crazy Post-It® Notes in all their sizes and colors. I’ve got them all over my desk and the sides of my computer monitor. Here’s a way to add a reasonable facsimile of Post-Its to your computer’s desktop if you’re running Windows® 7 or later by using Windows Sticky Notes in your legal nurse consulting business.
First, navigate to Accessories on the Windows 7 start menu (in Win 10 it’s in Windows Accessories in the All Apps menu). In Win 8.1, if you have a touch screen just slide upwards from the Start screen to bring up Apps View or if you’ve got a mouse, go to the Apps View by clicking on the down-arrow in the bottom left corner of your screen. No matter your OS, once you’ve found Sticky Notes click on it and you’ll get a blank note like this:Now just type your reminder into your note. You can add boldface (Ctrl-B) and italics (Ctrl-I) by using the usual Windows shortcuts and even change the color of the note by right-clicking on it and selecting a new color to help you organize your notes!
Here’s another tip for all Certified Legal Nurse Consultants, if you leave a note (or notes) open when you shut-down Windows, your note(s) should still be there the next time you start your computer. I sort of trust that, but to be sure this really happens, I right-clicked on Sticky Notes in my Start menu and added Sticky Notes to my Start menu.
Now my Sticky Notes are there every time I start my computer!
The more I’ve used these, the more I love them. Any Certified Legal Nurse Consultant will want to give them a test drive. They’re especially helpful when used in conjunction with my Copy as Path Tech Tip.
