Import and export a stack of sticky notes

When you export your stack of sticky notes, you save a copy of the stack by specifying a file name and location. You can do this to create a backup copy or to make the stack available for copying to a different computer. After you export the stack, it remains unchanged on your desktop.

When you import a stack of sticky notes, you either add the imported notes to your current stack or replace your current stack with the imported one. You can import a stack that you previously exported or that you copied to your Tablet PC from a different computer.
