    Im an avid user of the new 7 stickynotes but have a question (that probably has no answer). anyway, the first time i started using the notes, i deleted a note and was prompted with the "are you sure you want to delete" window, to which i quickly chose "dont show this again". i realized what a mistake i made much later on when i accidentally deleted several important notes. if you havnt guessed, im wondering if theres a way to bring back that option, to confirm deleting a note.


    thank you

    thanks for the quick reply, but i think you misunderstood. what im trying to do is bring back the delete confirmation prompt when deleted a sticky note.

    Call up regedit and navigate to this:

    HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-13200781-3199649996-1531337105-1002\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Applets\StickyNotes

    Double click: PROMPT_ON_DELETE and change the value to 1

    Note: there is no space in Applets. I don't know why it wants to post that way.
