Just released a new update of RecentX (Launcher for Windows) – version 3.0.16. It fixes some bugs & improves the over all experience. The fixes adds more convenience by improving the usability of the product.
Here is the list:
By default, website history is now disabled. We found that this feature is used rarely. Only bookmarks will be listed.
By default, tags bar appear below the find text box to make it more visible & easily accessible.
Pressing F7 to view All or Recent items cleared the keywords from the find text box so the user had to type the keywords again. This has been fixed.
Pressing F5 (to refresh) or F10 (to get details for network items) also cleared the keywords from the find text box so the user had to type the keywords again. This has been fixed.
When changing display resolution or attaching additional display monitor, the sidebar is lost. This as been fixed.
Renamed file was not added to the list. This has been fixed.
Scrollbars in RecentX did not work on Window 8. This has been fixed.
RecentX crashed at a particular point due to corrupted data. This has been fixed.
As you know, Internet banking websites do not let browsers to store the bank account numbers (or customer ids) and passwords on local machine.
Each time, we need to manually type the complete customer id and password. It becomes very difficult when we have to access multiple bank accounts.
How to solve this?
To easily access any bank information, I attach a sticky note (using Notezilla) on the bank’s website with all the required bank information from multiple accounts. When ever I access the bank’s website, the sticky note pops up. This is very, very convenient. I just copy the required info from the sticky note and paste it into the sign-in form.
Security concerns? The information inside sticky note is stored locally on your system. It does not travel through the Internet even when you stick the note to the website. So you don’t have to worry about it at all.
Password Hints: More over, bank sites require you to change the password every few days. It is very hard to remember the last password you had set. So I add password hints also into the sticky note for each account. Make sure your password hints are not very obvious :)
You may obscure the information in the sticky note to your satisfaction. Additionally, you can even lock the sticky note using Notezilla so that the data is encrypted on the local machine too.

Creating desktop sticky notes
Shows how to create sticky notes on desktop in Notezilla
To create a sticky note in Notezilla, right click on Notezilla icon in the taskbar and choose ‘New Note’ from the menu. A new note is placed on Windows deskop.
Good thing about sticky notes is that they are quick to create and access compared other kinds of notes software.
Type something inside the note. Website links (hyperlinks) can also be added to sticky notes.
You will notice that the sticky note resizes automatically according to the size of the content inside it.
A sticky note in Notezilla can have separate title. By default the title is same as the first line of the sticky note. However, you can press F2 or right click and choose ‘Add Title’ to add your own title.
When you select a sticky note you will also see the Note Toolbar sliding up with multiple options: Stay On Top, Hide Note, Roll Up/Down Note and Trash Note
Stay On Top is very, very useful when collecting notes or referring to existing notes while working with another app. It keeps the sticky note always on top of other programs.
Hide Note hides the sticky note from desktop which you can bring it up again from the Notes Browser or by using the ‘Show All Notes’ option from Notezilla menu.
Roll Up/Down Note saves desktop space and makes it more cleaner by showing only the title of the note and not the whole content. Also lets you hide some sensitive information from onlookers passing by.
Trash Note sends the note to Trash memoboard, basically recycle bin for sticky notes.
