How to undelete a sticky note after deleting in windows 7

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I had various sticky notes on my desktop and thought of cleaning up a little. I deleted some of the sticky notes which were not required. But, accidentally I have deleted one sticky notes which had crucial data of a few parcels and their tracking numbers. I do not have any other copy too. I am very much scared and trying to restore the notes since then. Where do the deleted sticky notes go? Is it possible to do undo delete? How to recover sticky notes back? Please help.

How to undelete a sticky note after deleting in windows 7


Step 1: Open ‘Computer’ ->open ‘Libraries’ -> Copy and paste the following address on the address bar.

‘%AppData%MicrosoftSticky NotesStickyNotes.snt’

Step 2: You will have to select a program to open the Stickynotes.snt file. You can open the .snt file with Notepad, Microsoft Word, or Wordpad.

Step 3: Once your Sticky Notes file is opened, you will probably find your content surrounded by some weird characters. Just copy and paste the part that you wish to recover.

Step 4: Try to right click on the StickyNotes.snt file and select Restore previous versions. Do note that this action will replace the current version of the file, which cannot be undone.

Step 5: Once the previous version is restored, you can open the StickyNotes.snt file again to access the restored content, or reboot your computer to get the previous version of your Sticky Notes on your desktop (without weird characters).
