But after doing some R&D, I have found the registry, that preserve Sticky Notes settings. You can restore back by following simple steps:

How To:

1. Run Registry Editor and navigate to following path:


2. Now delete the value called PROMPT_ON_DELETE or set its value to 1 

That’s it! You are done.
