KB00035 - How to display a sticky as Windows shuts down

The Problem

Stickies user Ed Grossheim wanted to attach a sticky to the window which appears when you shut down your computer to remind him to do a few things.

Trouble is, you can't attach stickies to this window. It runs very seperately to other normal windows, and once it's on-screen, most normal functions are suspended.

The Solution

Ed created a folder on his desktop with a unique name. Then, he attached a sticky to that folder, and put his reminders onto that sticky.

The computer is then shut down with a vbs file, rather than using the menus. The vbs file opens the folder in Windows Explorer, the sticky appears, and when you're done, click OK to shut down the machine.
