Post-It on Desktop Icons

This is simple and it might have been used already, but I really want to paste a post-it on a desktop icon so that I won’t forget what I should do with it. So if anybody knows a plugin like this, please let me know!!

Post-it colors, font size should be customizable just like “Stickies” (a default mac application).

Quick Look (a quick preview feature) or hover the cursor to see the enlarged image of the post-it.

  1. you have a tremendous idea!! but, right now, the only thing you can do is assign a different color label for the icon by pressing, command + i, then clicking the color or using the mouse secondary (control) + click then assigning the label. I use it just like DEFCOM, red for Urgent….

  5. there was an ancient app called folder brander that could give you some pointers about the app.

    The finder view with labels won’t be easy to do afaik, but you have to try to talk to someone that has more knowledgde than me.

    Hope this helps,
