This simple but functional freeware program offers an easy way to save notes and other snippets of information. Notes doesn't require installation--just run the executable file and a compact window appears. You can resize the window, type or paste text, and select the single option to have the program run at start-up. Text is automatically saved when you close the program, but you can't save individual notes.

No print options are offered and you can't change the font or its appearance. No Help file is offered, but one isn't really needed. Though we suspect most users will want a wider range of features, this program worked exactly as promised in testing, and absolutely anyone can use it.
