Flashnote is a very simple, small, and neat utility that allows you to quickly write down text notes. Actually, it's not a replacement to Notepad, Windows’ default text editor, as it doesn’t offer the same text formatting functions and is meant to provide a much faster and easier method of usage. It’s also not an alternative to virtual sticky notes applications, as it doesn’t allow creating virtual post-it notes that can be placed on random locations on your desktop. Anyway, for quickly taking text notes, it’s one of the fastest and most effective tools you can find. First of all, Flashnote is small, neat, and lightweight. It will run smoothly even on older systems, allowing a fast and simple method of writing down notes. It resides unobtrusively in the system tray and can be quickly opened and applied to write down a note just by using a hotkey. Secondly, its interface is straightforward and self-explanatory. There are no unneeded settings or intricate options, so even beginners will be able to use this tool without any problem. Even though it’s a very simple tool, it still offers some handy features. For example, it allows organizing the notes hierarchically, into parent and child notes, it enables finding a specific note using a keyword, and it lets you perform search and replace operations.

In conclusion, Flashnote is a great little tool that offers a really fast and convenient method of taking notes. Furthermore, it’s completely free.

Guest How do you view all notes at the same time? I only have a few words after each date and would like to see several at the same time.

Guest Very handy, quick to access/use, automatically accesses the clipboard and annotates notes with current date and time - can move text elsewhere later when I want to, or leave it in Flashnote as history.
