Instantly Turn Any Text Into A Sticky Note With This Mac Keyboard Shortcut

Mac: If you’re a fan of the Stickies app on the Mac and want a really quick way to create sticky notes out of existing text, here’s a keyboard shortcut that can save you some time. Just select any text from any source and press Command + Shift + Y.

This will automatically open the Stickies application (if it’s not open already) and create a new note containing that text. What’s really great is that if you copy text from a web site, it’ll retain any links and basic formatting. This makes it incredibly easy to go back to the original source should you have a need.

For a demonstration of this shortcut, watch the video up top.

Shortcut of the Day highlights a great shortcut on various platforms from the desktop to mobile-devices to the web. You can find more shortcuts here.
