PNotes Portable is a fully portable version of PNotes, a sticky notes manager. Imagine a pad full of yellow sticky notes that can look after themselves: That's PNotes. PortableApps provides the portable part, which means you can carry it with you on a USB drive and run it on any PC running Windows 2000 to 8 without installing, uninstalling, or leaving tracks in the Registry.

The process of downloading, extracting, and running portable software is often more intimidating than it needs be for many users, so PortableApps devised a Windows-like installer that extracts, saves, and even launches the app. That made setting up PNotes Portable a breeze. Better yet, you only have to do it once: PNotes Portable will launch normally when you next click the executable file. You can create a desktop shortcut to PNotes Portable, of course. But portability is what this app is all about, so as long as you move the entire folder, PNotes Portable will run where and when you click it.

PNotes Portable is very easy to use. A yellow Welcome note instructed us to right-click the app's tray icon to open an extensive main menu; double-clicking the icon opens a fresh note. PNotes has a lot of useful features, options, and extras, including a Diary, Hot keys, Password, Languages, Backup and Synchronization, and Skins. A Docking feature let us display and organize all notes at once. Bottom line: PNotes Portable is one of the best-performing and most versatile Windows sticky notes apps we've tried, and we've tried plenty.
