How do you delete stickies that are no longer needed? Please help!


MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    Not sure if this is what you're looking for but I simply left click on the upper left hand corner of the sticky title box and this brings up a menu Asking:

     

    Are you sure you want to discard this Stickies note?  If you don't save this note, its contents will be lost.  There are three choices provided: Don't Save, Cancel and Save. 

     

    This will delete the sticky from the ~/Library/StickiesDatabase and the ~Library/Preferences/com.apple.Stickies.plist files.

    If the Sticky is in your mission control then you click in the bottom left hand corner of the page on the minus button then little x's will appear on all of the items in your mission control, simply click on the stickies you wish to remove

    I tried every one of the suggestions below and none of them worked for me. On a lark, I hit the command key while I clicked on the upper left (barely visible) circle of the sticky note and that took care of all unwanted stickies. They did not come back.

    I went through all the STAGES recommended above to no avail. I FINALLY Just did this which will HOPEFULLY HELP everyone else for whom the above did not work. HURRAY!!!

     

    • JUST DRAG THE STICKIES OUT OF THE PAGE AND THEY GET VAPORIZED LIKE THE APPS ON THE MAC STRIP
