windows sticky notes

Postby fkapnist » Tue Sep 22, 2015 4:52 pm

Windows has StikyNot.exe in its system folder. I can run it with the following

Code: Select all
%windir%\system32\StikyNot.exe


or

Code: Select all
powershell %windir%\system32\StikyNot.exe


but I cannot run it from within a Neobook action. Does anyone know how?

:?:

I was finally able to run it through a shortcut with a Neobook action:

Code: Select all
explorer C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories\Sticky Notes.lnk


I suppose C:\ProgramData\ is a hidden folder so the shortcut lnk is in the same place on all Windows systems

Windows does lots of strange things. It's as if Microsoft goes out of their way to frustrate people. :x

StikyNot.exe is a mysterious thing ) Some files in System32 just cannot be seen or found by third-party tools, take a look at screenshot:

Left column is a system32 folder viewed by Total Commander, right column comes from Windows Explorer.
Also, it cannot be found with cmd console started by third-party tools, but it successfully runs from cmd.exe started from Start->Run...
Amazing!!! 8)

I don't know anyone who does not have administrative rights to their own computer. Maybe some office workers are not supposed to access the system files of a company workstation. Some of the so-called safety features are just nag screens, curious people will click even if warned not to
