I don't post here often, but I decided I needed a quick sticky note app on my laptop to paste snippets to, or quick 'DO THIS LATER' notes etc...
My company's primary note programme is 'OneNote'. OneNote is very good, but my OneNote is full of very heavy journals, plans etc, etc.
My Win8 work laptop comes with 'Sticky Notes', but if I paste from certain apps, it pastes using source formatting, which mucks up my notes and I can't see how to change the formatting (apart from Ctrl B, I, U etc...).
Enter PortableApps. I installed all of 4 or 5 Notes Apps, some were much heavier, like OneNote, others were too simple like Stick Notes. PNotes was last (alphabetically), whilst it has some additional functionality that I don't need or care about (backing up to FTP, Diary reminders etc... It has what I need.
I now have 'Quick Notes' for those quick paste/type notes/reminders for later... 'Text Templates' for those pieces of text I'll need repeatedly throughout the day and I'm sure I'll create a few more.
You should take 5 minutes to set it up the way YOU want it and then you're set!
