xx How to remove title bar from sticky?
« Thread started on: Oct 30th, 2016, 10:14pm »

I like the way default Windows stickies look - simple and slick, no GIANT TITLE bar that takes the space.

Is it possible to REMOVE it and free up space for the body? I know I can change color but I do not want that.

Try a different skin perhaps? Plenty available at Zhorn Software. I recently counted 220 skins available for download, many of them "simple and slick" and also with thin title bars. A number of them created by our Stickies-in-Chief, Tom Revell.

The BAR space is still there, in any skin, taking the place and ,well, space.

I see. You want no space. Zero space. You might like Tom's Zero skin.

The most minimal skin at Zhorn Software. Have you tried it? I use it for photographs and artwork, but not for text stickies.

Hi. I created this text-friendly version of Tom Revell's zero skin. It has margins of 8 pixels all the way around, and its title bar is also just 8 pixels. It's nice to have large enough borders along the sides and bottom because it make resizing easier. And (for text stickies) it's good to have at least a short title bar (which Tom's original did not) so that the note can be picked up and moved around.

Here's the link to download the modified zero skin;

It rolls into a strip 20 pixels high. There's really no room for a title when the note is unrolled, but the roll up does show a title.

Not to question Cynthia's work, but there's always this skin:

http://www.zhornsoftware.co.uk/stickies/skins/showone.pl?d=win10stickynotesstyle

It's based on the W10 sticky notes app.

I just ran the W10 sticky notes app, and put one next to a sticky. On my screen at least (150% DPI settings), the title bars are the same height - Stickies is 45px, and the Sticky Notes app is 42.
