How to Use Sticky Notes for Mac
Sticky notes are a versatile and useful tool for organizing your thoughts, reminders, and to-do list. Available on Mac computers, these virtual post-it notes can be used to jot down quick ideas, keep track of important information, and easily refer back to your notes when needed. Here’s how to use sticky notes for Mac:
1. Open the sticky notes app.
On a Mac computer, the sticky notes app should already be installed. To open the app, click on the Launchpad (rocket icon), and search for ‘Sticky Notes.’
2. Create a new note.
To create a new note, click on the ‘+’ icon in the bottom left corner of the screen or type Command + N. A yellow sticky note will appear on the screen, ready for you to add text.
3. Edit and format your note.
Once you’ve created a note, you can edit it by clicking on the text box and typing in your text. You can format the text, change the font and the size, and add bullet points or numbering.
4. Save your note.
Unlike traditional paper sticky notes, your virtual sticky notes will automatically save changes as you type. However, it’s a good idea to regularly click the ‘Save’ button so that you don’t lose any important information.
5. Customize your notes.
To customize your notes, click on the ‘•••’ icon on the top right corner of the note. Here, you can change the color of the note, add reminders, flag important notes, lock notes, archive notes, and delete notes.
6. Pin your notes.
To make your notes easily accessible, you can pin them to your desktop. Click on the title bar of the note and drag it to the desktop or the Finder window. Your note will now be available to view even when the sticky note app is closed.
7. Use keyboard shortcuts.
To speed up your note-taking, you can use keyboard shortcuts. Some popular shortcuts include:
– Command + N: Create a new note.
– Command + T: Convert text to a title.
– Command + D: Duplicate a note.
– Command + B: Add bold formatting to a note.
– Command + I: Add italic formatting to a note.
