General Info on DeskNotes

 DeskNotes_big
The image displays several desknotes open on Windows desktop. One DeskNote is in yellow, transparent. Another one has a reminder setup to beep and pop up about Fridays party. Third DeskNote is just being edited with formatting toolbar open. Formatting allows to set bullets, numbering, change fonts ( bold, italics, underline and strikethrough) or change background color. Formatting toolbar can be shown and hidden using Ctrl+F shortcut.

The Archive window features same formatting options as DeskNotes itself, so it is possible to modify DeskNotes in archive. DeskNotes can be archived in different categories for easier search in. It is possible to Move or Copy DeskNote from Archive back to desktop. Full text search is available in Archive in tab Search.
