New Update – Notezilla 8.0.32 for Windows

We are happy to announce that we have released a new update for Notezilla for Windows.

Presenting to you, Notezilla 8.0.32!

You can read the revision history here.

This article will cover details of all the changes we made in the new update.

What’s New?

  • Faster sync of sticky notes across all devices: Yes, you read that right! Notezilla on Windows now sync every minute. This improved frequency gives the advantage of faster updates on all the other devices too. Receiving sticky notes from your contacts is also faster now. This will help improve productivity and efficiency of tasks.
  • Sync window updated

  • Hide notes on Show Desktop (Win+D): Your desktop sticky notes will no longer disappear when using the “Show Desktop” (Win+D) feature of Windows. Using the newly added “Hide notes on Show Desktop” (Win+D) feature, if you disable this particular option, then the sticky notes will always remain visible on your desktop when using the “Show Desktop” (Win+D) feature. A small yet very handy feature.
  • Blank notes deleted permanently: Unlike the earlier version where a blank note deleted was sent to the trash folder/memo board, the new version permanently deletes blank notes. The trash memoboard doesn’t fill up unnecessarily.
  • Default Hotkeys now modified: The default hotkeys of Notezilla have been modified as they were conflicting with shortcut keys of other popular apps like Windows. You can now use the Hotkeys along with other apps, without any disturbance.
  • Product Notifications: Product news, updates and offers will be shown from within the app, automatically when needed.
  • Notification Tab

  • Sticky note skins with better gradient: The “Classic Gradient” skin has better gradient now. This improves the look of your sticky note making it more attractive.
  • Classic gradient skin

    We have improved

    We have fixed many bugs since our previous version based on suggestions and feedback from users. Because we believe in consistently improving over time.

  • Updated app skin for “Due Date Window”: The overall look of the app has been improved to make it more comfortable to read the dates inside the ‘Set Due Date’ window. This makes it easier to set reminders to your Notezilla sticky notes
  • Due Date Window-updated

  • Easier formatting of checklist sticky notes: Earlier’ when a checklist note was updated from the phone, the formatting (strike-through) of that note on Windows desktop was frequently lost after sync. This problem will no longer occur.
  • Other bugs fixed:
    1. Day light saving issue fixed.
    2. The first 2 columns of a memoboard sometimes lost the icons after sync. This is fixed.
    3. The trash prompt message did not appear on top of the sticky note when trashed from reminder window in the earlier version. This is fixed.
    4. Improved usability and User Interface in many prominent areas.
      1. You can check out the latest update by downloading and installing it from here.

        Also, this new update is free for all our existing customers.

        We hope you love Notezilla even more after trying out the update. Feedback and suggestions invited.

  • Delete only specific type of files from folder tree in Windows using Copywhiz

    This post will tell how to delete certain files from specific folders without much efforts and time.

    I recently came across an old folder on my system which had a lot of my old songs and important pictures. I don’t need the songs. Just the pictures.

    I now had two options:

    1. Go to each folder of the whole folder tree, and manually delete all the pictures.

    2. Use Copywhiz, a file copy app for Windows.

    The trick to move specific type of files (only pictures in our case) to another folder. Moving means, deleting from the source folder after copying it to destination folder. Later we can simply delete the destination folder. This way we are achieving our goal to delete specific type of files from whole folder tree.

    Steps to delete specific type of files

    1. Go to Windows File Explorer, select the files from the source folder, right-click and choose Copywhiz–>Copy as shown below:

    2. Go to the destination folder, click Copywhiz–> Paste Advanced. The Advanced Settings window will open. Type the name or type of files to copy under “Include Files”.

      Tip: You can even preview the files that will be copied before actually copying them, to stay safe. Just click on the “Preview” button in the bottom right corner.

    3. Click OK. You will see the Copywhiz main window. Under the paste options select, “Paste and delete original (move)”. Click on “Paste Now”.

    4. Your files will be copied to the destination folder all at once and also automatically deleted from the source folder.
    5. You can now delete the source folder since your required files have been stored/copied safely.

    Thus Copywhiz easily helped copy my files from a large number of folders and sub-folders. Thus saving me from the tedious task of scrolling through multiple files and folders.

    Windows: Sending sticky notes to another computer using the IP address

    This post will tell you how to send a sticky note to other PC computers in Windows using it’s IP address. We will be using Notezilla for this purpose.

    What is Notezilla?

    Notezilla is a professional, elegant & highly rated sticky notes app for Windows & Phones (Android, iOS, iPhone, iPad, Windows Phone etc). It can help you organize your life by keeping all the notes, tasks & reminders that you may need when-ever and where-ever you are. Check out Notezilla’s homepage.

    Send sticky notes through LAN

    One really helpful feature of Notezilla is that you can send sticky notes to any contact across the globe. Your contact may be in the same network (LAN) or over the Internet. You can also send sticky notes to a group of contacts at once.

    This is really easier and faster than communication through mail. Also, to maintain privacy & security, the sticky notes will be sent internally over the local network using the recipient’s computer name or IP address.

    Sending notes through the IP address is a better option when you have a lot of computers to send notes to. But what if you don’t know the names of all the computers? Just specify the IP address. You may even want to send the note to a particular computer rather than a particular person, thereby ensuring that the note reaches the computer regardless of who is using it.

    Watch a short video that shows how you can do this:

    To send a Notezilla sticky note using the IP address:

    1. Select a sticky note in Notezilla, right click on its title/toolbar and choose ‘Send To->Computer’ from the menu.
    2. A ‘Computers’ window will be displayed. Click on the ‘Manage Computers’ button to add a new computer or edit the existing ones.
    3. Click on the ‘Add Computer’ button and add computer details in the text box. The format will be – First name, Last name, computer name. Here, instead of computer name you can specify IP address also.
    4. Click on ‘Next -> Finish’ and finally select the ‘Send Now’ option.
    5. Your sticky notes will be instantly sent to the computer(s).

    Allow Notezilla through Windows Firewall

    Here are some points to ensure that the sticky note reaches successfully on another PC.

    Notezilla should be installed on another PC also in order to receive the sticky note.

    If you are sending note from Computer A to Computer B. Then Computer A should have Computer B in its computers list. This ensures that firewall is configured correctly. On Computer B, go to a sticky note and select “Send To Computers” and ensure that you have added Computer A. Only then you must attempt to send note from Computer A to Computer B.

    To troubleshoot further, make sure to configure your PC firewall to allow running of Notezilla. The firewall on the PC might sometimes not allow to send or receive notes.

    You can search for firewall in Windows search box and you will see “Allow an app through Windows Firewall”. Choose this option and enable Notezilla. If Notezilla is not listed, then click on ‘Allow another app’ and add Notezilla.

    If you are using any other Firewall tool (usually included with Anti-Virus software) then you will have to configure that firewall.

    Make sure you do this on both sending and receiving computer.

    This way your contacts will receive the sticky note right on their desktop if they are a Notezilla user. If not, they will receive the note as an email. The note will reach safely even if the receiving computer is turned off.

    Searching for text within a sticky note in Windows

    This post will tell you how you can search for text within a sticky note in Windows using Notezilla, a sticky notes app for Windows & Phones (Android, iOS, iPhone, iPad, Windows Phone etc).

    Sticky notes in Notezilla are not designed only for writing short notes. You can even use them as an alternative to Notepad. Notezilla allows you to work on sticky notes that are as wide as your display monitor. This way you can use sticky notes to also store large content such as reference material, web snippets, scripts, drafts etc. You don’t have to worry about saving your collected data to separate files.

    While you store large content into the notes, you may find it difficult to manually search for a particular word or keyword in the long note. Say, you want to replace or remove a particular word but can’t find it.

    This is where Notezilla will help you. You just have to press the “Ctrl+F” key from within a sticky note. A search box will automatically open wherein you can type the text you are looking for. The search results will be highlighted in the note. You can even right click inside a sticky note and select the “Find” option to do the same.
    The results will be filtered as and when you keep typing.

    If the word you are looking for is repeated several times in the note, just click on the right facing arrow and the next place where it appears is highlighted.

    Notezilla thus saves a lot of your time and efforts on searching for text.
