Hide and unhide sticky notes from desktop using a Windows sticky note alternative app

The sticky note world has changed a lot with the development of digital sticky notes that appear on your desktop. Instantly type what’s on your mind on desktop sticky notes without changing your task in hand. It provides a lot of ease. For this reason, sticky notes are better than other type of note programs. And many sticky note softwares offer other important features. Like recently, Windows added new updates to its sticky notes software with features like sync, pen support, new improved design etc.
