The graphics editor I use most often just to tweak and modify photos and images, especially for desktop backgrounds. Outside of that I've enhanced more than a few presentations by making color edits that PowerPoint's inexact image tools couldn't do. I love this program.

@__philippe: It's so far really, really great. I'm tempted to bump up the current version to the beta just because it's such a leap in available features and (so far) quite stable.

Lots of other changes: http://www.zhornsoftware.co.uk/stickies/versions.html
Stickies runs on XP SP1, Vista, 7, 8 and 10. Earlier versions of Windows are no longer supported.
For those OS, try an older version of Stickies: http://www.zhornsoftware.co.uk/support/kb.pl?q=00013

Alternative extraction method:

Open installer in 7-Zip like "Parser" (File > 7-Zip > Open archive > # or File > Open Inside #);
You'll see three ZIPs inside;
In 2.zip - stickies.exe, in 4.zip - stickies.chm, in 6.zip - stickies8.ssk, which should be in "skins" folder.

Where can i find list of the command parameters that can be used when creating association? I am talking about parameter like this "%1" which is used with the Open action.

@Peter202: You will have to take a look at each program documentation (help files, wiki pages, even forums).

Midas on 2014-05-23 14:01

According to Softpedia, which rates it with 4 stars, current Types version is v2.1.6.10711, but I couldn't find a changelog anywhere, or any program info for that matter (see http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System-Miscellaneous/Types.shtml).

Softpedia also indicates DotNET requirement is v2.0, but the framework pointed to by the program site (see ahead) is v3.5. As user Tertius noted above, the new Types site address is http://izt.name/apps/types/ -- the old page at http://sourceforge.net/projects/types/ is now mostly blank...
