The Desktop Stickers let you turn your boring wallpaper into a fun place. These stickers sit permanently on your desktop even if you change the wallpaper.
However, it is still an experiment, so you have to tweak with Registry to enable Desktop Stickers on your computer. Thus, we recommend first taking a system backup before adjusting the Registry settings. It is always better to be cautious than to lose your data.
However, if you follow these steps closely, you can easily enable the Desktop Stickers context menu from the Registry:
Step 1. Press Windows and R keys on your keyboard to open the Run command box.
Step 2. Enter regedit in the search field and hit the Enter key.
Step 3. After that, the Windows Registry Editor will now launch on your Desktop.
Step 4. Follow this path to reach the specific key in the Registry—
Step 5. After locating the device key, right-click on it and select New, followed by Key.
Step 6. Rename the new key created as Stickers.
Step 7. Up next, right-click on Stickers and select New, followed by DWORD (32-bit) Value.
Step 8. Now, rename the new Registry Entry as EnableStickers.
Step 9. Double-click on EnableStickers. A new box will pop up with an option to set the Value data. Set the value to 1.
Step 10. Finally, reboot your PC to implement the new changes.
After activating Desktop Stickers from the Registry Editor, you can add them to your wallpaper. There is no limit on how many stickers you can add to your desktop. But this goes without saying that more Stickers are equivalent to more RAM space.
Thus, we recommend our readers to use 1-2 Desktop Stickers at the start. That is because it is a beta feature yet, so nobody actually knows how it can impact your system’s performance.
Here are the simple steps to add Desktop Stickers on Windows 11:
Step 1. Right-click on any empty space on your desktop and choose the Add or Edit Stickers option from the pop-up menu. Alternatively, open Windows Settings by pressing Windows and I keys. After that, select Personalization > Background > Add Stickers.
Step 2. You will now get a new Sticker Editor where you can select different stickers. In addition, you can use the search option to find your favorite stickers from a huge gallery.
Step 3. Click on the Sticker that you have selected, and it will be added to your desktop.
Step 4. Once the sticker is added to your desktop, right-click on it and select the Add or Edit Sticker option. The Sticker Editor will open up with features to resize or delete your stickers.
Step 5. In this mode, you can drag and drop the Sticker on your desktop to change its position. Once you are done, click on the X icon to close the Sticker Editor.
Step 6. You can also delete the Desktop Stickers in the Editor mode by clicking on the Recycle Bin icon.
Windows 11 Desktop Stickers are fun. Unfortunately, they are just fun and nothing else. These Stickers are not boosting your productivity in any way. In fact, they can reduce your PC’s space by consuming extra space on your RAM.

Step 1. Press Windows and R keys to open the Run box. Then, type regedit and hit the Enter button.
Step 2. Once on the Registry Editor, navigate to this path—
