I'm a fan of Essential PIM. If you've ever used Microsoft Outlook (notes, tasks, calendar and email) then think of Essential PIM as being what Outlook should have been. It's really powerful, easy to use, and makes it really easy to find your information. And unlike Outlook, Essential PIM includes a password manager and dozens of other things too.
The full program is commercial and costs around $40. But there's also a completely free version which gives you basic versions of notes, tasks, email, passwords, contacts and calendar. It's a great way to keep all your notes and information in one handy place (ie a single database file which you can easily back up for safety).
Last week, Essential PIM was updated to version 7.6 so if you're using an older version you should update. If you haven't yet tried the program, give it a go. I use it every day and I'm very impressed.
You'll find the link to the download of the free version at the bottom of the https://www.essentialpim.com/pc-version/pro-vs-free page. It's available in installable or portable forms. The downloads are malware-free according to VirusTotal.
