Attaching digital sticky notes to folders in Windows File Explorer

We create sticky notes for various files. But you can now create sticky notes and attach to a particular file, folder, website, etc. instead of just having them on your desktop. The note will pop up whenever you open that particular file or website and will disappear otherwise.

All this is possible using Notezilla, a sticky note app for Windows, Android, iPhone/iPad and other devices.

What is Notezilla?

Notezilla is a professional, elegant & highly rated sticky notes app for Windows & Phones (Android, iOS, iPhone, iPad, Windows Phone, etc.). It can help you organize your life by keeping all the notes, tasks & reminders that you may need when-ever and where-ever you are.

With sticky notes, you hardly have to put effort to take notes, set reminders, etc. Just jot down & move on with your task at hand. Notezilla allows you to create attractive and realistic sticky notes to make the desktop look more colorful and beautiful.

It works smoothly on both phones & tablets.

Sticking a note to Windows File Explorer

Many of our users had this question- “Using Notezilla, how do I stick notes to folders in Windows Explorer?”.

Stick note to folder

The process of sticking notes to a folder is the same as sticking notes to any other website or document using Notezilla. However, to make it work correctly, there is a setting in Windows Explorer that needs to be enabled.

We have a short video that explains all the steps:

Notezilla sticks sticky notes to different web pages, documents, folders & emails based on the title of the window. In the case of Windows Explorer, by default, the title of the window is the folder name. So here comes the problem. If you have multiple folders with the same name, then the sticky note would show up on all those folders because of the same window title, which we do not want.

To solve this, we have to enable a setting in Windows File Explorer – “Display the full path in the title bar.”

On Windows 10/7, Open the file explorer and click on the ‘View’ option and select ‘Folder Options.’

Under the View tab of the folder options, you would also see a note “Classic theme only” against this setting. It only means that the full path will be shown only in the Classic Windows theme. Other themes will use the full path internally (which is what Notezilla requires).

Just enable the option mentioned above and also depicted in the below picture.

That’s it. You are now all set and running.

So how about giving it a try today.

The best part of Notezilla is that it can sync notes between your mobile and PC or laptop! Therefore, you have the exact notes at both places! Try the sync feature today! You will surely love it.

Showing the desktop sticky note from any memoboard

In the latest build of Notezilla – 8.0.15, we added an easier way to show and hide the desktop sticky note from any memoboard.

In the earlier builds, one would have to explicitly go to the ‘On desktop’ filter to browse all desktop sticky notes. This function was harder than the previous version Notezilla 7.0. But we have made it better in Notezilla 8.0.15.

Watch this short video:

How to show the desktop sticky note from any memo board.

From the Notes Browser, select the sticky note that is stuck to the Windows desktop. Then click on the ‘Stick to Desktop’ toolbar button and choose ‘Show the desktop note.’

Alternatively, you can also right-click on the note and choose ‘Stick to Desktop -> Show the desktop note’ from the menu.

Sticky note titles are back in Notezilla 8

Thanks a lot to all the users who emphasized on the importance of sticky note titles.

We just released Notezilla 8.0.14 with the title feature.

You can download it from here.

Watch a short video depicting this feature:

Also, due to the change in how sticky notes can be stuck to the desktop (from any memoboard) in Notezilla 8, we had removed the ‘Show’ & ‘Hide’ buttons from the Notes Browser. We will be bringing them back also in the next build.

Do keep sending in your questions & feedback. We are listening.

Thanks for all the support and the awesome reviews.
