PC Journal is straight-forward, easy to use journal (or if you prefer the term, diary) software, meant to give users the opportunity to write down their thoughts safely and securely. Its style harkens back to the days of old, before computers, when a store bought, five and dime diary was all that was needed to hide away your inner most thoughts. Much like the old style keys someone needed to gain access to their journal or diary, the pc journal requires a numerical pass code (supplied upon 1st use (a copy of this code is found inside pc journal's main folder (check compatibility files tab if file passcode.txt is not seen)) for entry, and optional encryption provides further protection of your privacy.
The interior of the journal also contains a compact address book, a daily reminder, as well as a Scribble pad (Stylus pen or mouse use (standard text characters and pictures may also be added to the notes (can simply be used as a photo album)), and several of the most common and simple games of yesteryear (slide puzzle, tic tac toe and hangman). The entries themselves may be viewed, front to back or back to front, and can be searched by date as well. The journal comes with 3 optional covers, with an additional option to create your own custom cover as well. Complete and up-to-date help files are also included and should provide answers to any questions that you may have about this software.

Version: Desktop Journal 3.9.8
It seemed to work flawlessly. I did forget the pass code when i First opened it up. But went into the journal's main folder and I found a copy of it there. I like the look of the journal and the scribble pad and the mini games are cool.
You can't add pics to your journal entries, as you can only do that with the scribble pad. But no big deal.
The file you're looking for is passcode.txt (this should be deleted once you have memorized your code). Under older systems, like XP, it is located inside the main folder of the journal. Under Vista and Windows 7, it is hidden under the compatibility files tab within the same folder. Under Windows 8, it is either in program files/Desktop Journal folder, or a duplicated folder of the same name found within the virtual store (see help files for exact pathway, it's rather lengthy). Please feel free to contact me directly if you need further assistance. My email may be found within the journal help files -
