QuotePad is a simple, yet effective note takes for Windows. It is especially useful for taking notes from web pages.
While programs like EverNote are highly evolved organizers of information, some people don't need such complexity. QuotePad is for these people. Like previously reviewed CintaNotes, QuotePad offers a simple way to keep hold of thoughts or interesting things, with hotkey access.
For example, if you want to record text from a website, simply highlight it, click CTRL+Shift+Q and QuotePad will open a new note. Notes are stored chronologically and are easy to edit. Also, if your note is from the internet, there will be a little button you can click to be returned to the web source.
When inactive Quotepad sits in the system tray, although you can "pin" it to your desktop to stop it minimizing if you need.
Another advantage of Quotepad is that it can be installed and run from a USB drive, so youdcan carry your notes around on a USB stick if you want. There's nothing really wrong with it, although it is fairly basic, and doesn't feature any multimedia support.
QuotePad is a great little notepad for keeping text and web sources.
