I want a transparent notes window that always stays in front. I'll use it to put 2 or 3 daily reminders.

I tried the Window's Sticky Notes app and it isn't transparent and it doesn't stay in front of the other windows.

There's a paid software called Notezilla which does this. They offer a 30-day free trial.

I can recommend Stickies from personal experience.

It's a free "sticky" editor similar to the Windows built-in, with a bunch of additional features. Note transparency and always on top per sticky is possible.

Main features -

  • Once on screen, notes will remain where placed until closed, even through reboots
  • Stickies appearance can be customised; fonts, colours and buttons may be changed, and styles saved. Notes can be resized.
  • Stickies can store text or images
  • Stickies can be hidden for a certain period, until a specified date and time, or to wake every day, week or month, to act as reminders.
  • Stickies can have alarms set to ensure you notice them at a point you choose
  • International language, Unicode and RTL text support
  • Stickies can snap to each other and to the sides of the screen to keep them neatly lined up
  • Stickies can be attached to an application, web site, document or folder so they only show when it's on screen
  • Stickies can be transferred from one machine to another either over a TCP/IP network connection, or by using an SMTP mail server or MAPI client:
  • Hierarchical friends list, which may be automatically transferred from other friends
  • Stickies works with Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10
  • Stickies is small and simple, it writes to a database file, and does not alter the registry
  • AD network administrators can use Group Policy to control settings
  • API to allow integration with other applications
  • ...and Stickies is completely free!
