    Desktop "to-do" list
    Hello all,

    New to the Mac, do any of you know or use an application which allows a list to be viewable on the desktop, something like yellow post-it notes.

    Just to try and explain that a little better, I'm after something very simple which has my to-do list easily visible. I don't want something business orientated (like Microsoft tasks in Outlook).

    Thanks

    What about the application "Stickies"...included with the Mac OS software.

    Yeah, in fact that was a perfect description of Stickies!

    More about them:
    They are saved through Restarts.
    You have to run Stickies (it's an application) to see the notes. You could make it run at Start Up if you want.

    Here's one way to do it:

    Mac 101: Launch at startup, the Login Items tab

    Here's a couple YouTube videos showing how to do it a couple other ways as well:
