    Thanks for the tips; the keyboard shortcuts are great and very easy! I agree that the Windows 7 sticky notes are useful, but they would look better and fit well on my computer if I used my favorite font. Have you ever thought of also changing the logon screen in Windows 7? If you think the blue logon screen is dull, you can download a tool that helps you switch to a sleeker style.

    So great of you to spend so much time.
    What I want to do is change the DEFAULT font of sticky notes. Someone advised going into regedit to attack the font, but they did not give directions for Windows 7. Love to change this!

    You can cut & paste the text from another app (eg. Word) into stickies, in which case it preserves font & size.
