    How to Recover notes written in Sticky Notes after Closing?

    Hi, i have been using Windows 7 ultimate version for my DELL Laptop. I have typed some important mobile contacts in my Sticky Notes in the desktop. But, i closed it unintentionally without Saving it. Is there any way, i could restore the contents in the sticky notes?? Can somebody help me?

    Hello dude,

    We can't retrieve sticky notes, but we can read the closed sticky notes contents. Just follow the steps,

    => Select show Hidden files from folder option.

    Start -> Control Panel -> All Control Panel Items -> Folder Options -> Click View menu tab -> check Show Hidden files, folders and drivers

    => Open sticky Notes file with notepad.

    C:\Users\AccountName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Sti cknotes

    This really help for you,
    Regards.,

    Hi,

    Sticky Notes are volatile and can`t be saved but let`s try the following if it helps, i believe it will.
    To recover data, navigate towards the [ C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Stic ky Notes directory ],
    Right click on "StickyNotes.snt",
    Select "Restore Previous Versions". This will search, find and gather the file from latest restore point, if at all available.
    if you close the Sticky Note by right-clicking it on the taskbar,observations are that it closes the Sticky Note application.
    However, when you open Sticky Notes next time your data will return.
    The similar thing happens if you leave the Sticky Note up while "rebooting the computer".
    What about using those?
    Thancks.
