PNotes

CNET Editors' review

Paper sticky notes have become ubiquitous in both homes and offices; they're an easy way to keep track of important information. Or they are until their adhesive fails and they disappear under your desk or get stuck to the back of some other piece of paper. We've encountered numerous programs that seek to duplicate the utility of sticky notes by allowing users to place virtual notes on their desktop, but we're not sure that we've encountered any that are as comprehensive as Pnotes. This program takes the best aspects of the sticky note concept and adds numerous useful features.

Pnotes appears as an icon in the system tray, and getting started is as simple as right-clicking on it to display a lengthy menu of options. Select New Note from the menu and a fresh sticky appears on the desktop, ready for you to type whatever it is that you need to remember. Notes come with a full complement of formatting options: you can change the font, font size, and font color; bold, italicize, underline, strikethrough, and highlight their text; and align or add bullet points to your list. Notes can also be used as reminders, and alerts can be scheduled to occur once or to repeat at specific intervals ranging from seconds to years. There are a variety of options to help you organize and find notes: you can arrange them in groups, add tags to them, and search for them. The notes come with one basic yellow skin, but you can download additional skins from the Pnotes Web site. An online Help file gives a good overview of the program's many features. Overall, we think that Pnotes is a great choice for just about everyone; it's as easy to use as the paper version, but its numerous options make it quite a bit more useful.

Pnotes comes as a ZIP file. It's accessible after extraction with no need for installation, meaning that you can keep it on a USB drive and access it wherever you go.

    "Very good desktop notes"

    September 5, 2012  |   By chrisausten

    Version: PNotes 9.1

    Pros

    Great looking notes especially the "classic yellow".
    Lots and lots of options to use.
    Can be "installed" into windows, or simply used as a basic exe. without installation.

    Cons

    None that I know of.

    Summary

    I have been using this for a long time and just upgraded to this new version. It operates perfectly on Win.7-64. You can download it here, or you can go to the vendor's web site and download a zip package...place the contents of the zip package in a convenient location (such as documents) and run it from there as an exe.(Place a shortcut in your startup folder to make it start with windows).
    PS - Pay no attention to the review below that says "minus one star...do not download" -- I can tell you that it runs great and it will uninstall in a snap with no registry problems. The person who wrote that review is probably still using Windows 95!

    "love PNotes"

    February 3, 2012  |   By imontheinternet

    Version: PNotes 8.5.106

    Pros

    can be used as simply or elaborately as you want (has just about every helpful feature you can think of).

    definitely comparable to other notes software that you have to pay for.

    can make your own skins.

    Cons

    can't adjust size of additional skins (but there are some skins that are bigger in size).

    Summary

    after trying PNotes you may think twice about paying for other notes software that don't really have more features than PNotes but just perhaps appearances that you may want to pay for.

    "If I could give a minus star I would!!1"

    August 9, 2011  |   By taaronp

    Version: PNotes 8.0.110

    Pros

    NONE...DO NOT DOWLOAD!!! Wasted an hour trying to get this piece of sh-t off my computer. Thanks alot Cnet.

    Cons

    Would not even run...says it does not install itself...Bull. It put crap all over my regisrty when i tried to uninstall it with Revo. Do not just delete the program..got to get all the junk out out of your registry too.

    Summary

    Cnet is getting to be a terrible place for downloading programs. Cnets OWN installer also treied to add toolbars and change my homepage. What is wrong with you Cnet. I do not know who reviewed this program...but you guys must be hard up for help.
