This notes organizer has a small footprint but packs a lot into it.
Quotepad is a desktop notes organizer that's easy to use and is free to download.
Quotepad is great for quick notes you want to save. It's small (930 KB) and it has some great features. My favorite feature is when you copy some text from a website, Quotepad saves the note and the URL of the page it was from. Even better, with a few key strokes or a click or two, its automatically pasted into Quotepad.
Notes are searchable and can be added to folders you create. Quotepad can add reminders, comes in many languages, has keyboard shortcuts, and, it exports your notes to a .txt or .xml file that can be opened in several other programs.
Quotepad docks to the side of your screen as a thin vertical line. The default is orange but the program has several color schemes if you want to change the color.
The notepad pops out when you mouse over it. It pops out too often for me, so you may want to enable the "hide on leave focus" feature. It automatically hides the notes window when you switch to another application window.
The program is portable and the website has extensive help and how-to for the program.
This is a good alternative if you don't need a larger notes organizer, such as Evernote.
QuotePad runs under Windows 2000/XP/Vista/Windows 7 and has a multilingual interface.
