Create a new Efficient Sticky Notes file. At Efficient Sticky Notes's first run, it creates a file 'MyStickyNotes.esnx' in the 'My Documents' folder. By default, all your information will be saved in this file. If you hope to manage your sticky notes in different files, you can also create other Efficient Sticky Notes file(s).


Open an existing Efficient Sticky Notes file.
Tip: The files which are created by EfficientPIM, Efficient Address Book, Efficient Reminder, Efficient Calendar, Efficient To-Do List, Efficient Diary, Efficient Password Manager, Efficient Notes and Efficient Man's/Lady's Organizer can be also opened by Efficient Sticky Notes. That is to say, these software can open the files of other ones.
