    does anyone know of a sticky notes program that would allow me to attach notes to specific applications. ie, so when you switch apps the appropriate note would pop up. ive tried several freeware sticky note programs but none seem to have this feature. or is there another kind of program that could accomplish this?

    just tried out both of those programs mentioned in that discussion. quick notes plus seems to be more of what im looking for. the sticky notes program only shows the note when the app first runs, not when switched to. only problem with the quick notes is that its too windows title specific. for instance in opera you have to be on the specific web page for the note to pop up. i also wonder if maybe i can solve this problem by some kind of virtual desktop utility. or maybe autohotkey or autoit?

    Perhaps, I haven't given it much thought. I can't imagine why I'd want a note popping up every time I switched to an application! :D
