In the latest build of Notezilla – 8.0.15, we added an easier way to show and hide the desktop sticky note from any memoboard.
In the earlier builds, one would have to explicitly go to the ‘On desktop’ filter to browse all desktop sticky notes. This was harder than the previous version Notezilla 7.0. But we have made it better in Notezilla 8.0.15.
Watch this short video:
How to show the desktop sticky note from any memo board.
From the Notes Browser, select the sticky note that is stuck to the Windows desktop. Then click on the ‘Stick to Desktop’ toolbar button and choose ‘Show the desktop note’.
Alternatively, you can also right click on the note and choose ‘Stick to Desktop -> Show the desktop note’ from the menu.
If you are already a registered user of Notezilla 8, you can download the new build for free. Go to download page.
Also, due to the change in how sticky notes can be stuck to the desktop (from any memoboard) in Notezilla 8, we had removed the ‘Show’ & ‘Hide’ buttons from the Notes Browser. We will be bringing them back also in the next build.
Do keep sending in your questions & feedback. We are listening.
Thanks for all the support and the awesome reviews.

The new build of Copywhiz that we launched today allows you to copy just the files (without their folders) to a single folder. This is useful when you are collecting your favorite pictures or music files from different directories using Copywhiz and wish to copy them all to one directory without their containing directories. Example: On a USB pen drive, etc. Very good for organizing several files together.
We also have a short video on this feature for you:
This last week I experienced a major computer “crash” and lost everything including my information about my Notezilla application. In the stress of the busy week, I couln’t even remember the NAME of the product or website! I searched and searched the web for “stickie notes”, “desktop notes” etc. Nothing came up that I remembered or that was familar – Sooooo. I tried to download “other” product trial offers.UGH. I tried them and deleted them within a day. They were not intuitive, they werer clumbsy and intrusive. I was almost ready to stop looking when I ran across a website doing “reviews” of desktop notes — there I saw it NOTEZILLA! I now have you back on my desktop. Without a dobut, out of everything out there for desktop notes, you’re product is perfection. Perfect in everyway that a desktop note should help and support a busy person being more productive.
The ‘Show Desktop’ icon in Windows task bar is intended to show the complete desktop without any windows. This includes Notezilla sticky notes too. Clicking on the ‘Show Desktop’ icon will hide all sticky notes too.
For this reason, Notezilla installs another icon called ‘Bring Notes On Top’ in the same task bar. Clicking on this icon will bring the notes on top of all the open windows. Alternatively you can use the hot key Ctrl+Shift+T to bring the notes on top.
A must have document, folders and website launcher!
I have heard much about RecentX and decided to try it. It’s truly a great and time saving program.
Recent X is a fast file launcher. It allows you to open recently used documents, media, folders and websites in a flash. But why use it you ask? Why not open these files and folders manually? The answer is the fortune of time and aggravation you will save using RecentX and the refreshing convenience that comes from use of well designed program.
RecentX puts all your recently used documents, media, folders and websites in an easy accessible and searchable hotkey triggered list for super fast identification and access. The most recently used files, folders, programs and websites get priority.
Want to keep working on a Microsoft Word document you were editing yesterday, last week, last month, and know its name but forgot where you saved it in your tree file structure? Call up Recent X with CTRL+SHIFT+1 and your recently used documents list will be in front of you, type a bit of the file name you are after and in a flash and your document is there, and you can open it and work on it with a minimum of fuss. All I can say is wow! Increased productivity here I come! Also hotkeys are configurable.
The program can also be accessed from the system tray or from clicking on a floating tab panel. Best of all it is not complicated and it is user friendly and intuitive. Microsoft why don’t you design software like this?
Better still you can easily configure it to open folders in any file manager of your choice. You can drag your recently used files right out of Recent X as attachments into e-mail – which is just awesome – it is worth buying for this alone. Recent X even allows you to cut recently used files from your recent files list and you can them paste them to locations of your choice within the folder list of Recent X itself!
You can also list all matching items in searches you conduct so your searches are not limited to recent documents, media, folders and websites only. Also the Windows explorer menu is also accessible while in Recent X.
In short Recent X is a wonderful, well thought out application that will save you a fortune of time, aggravation and money once you use it and you will soon wonder how you ever got by without it.
I strongly recommend you purchase a copy. It will pay for itself in no time!
By default, Notezilla comes with English language dictionaries. Here is a trick suggested by one of our customers ‘RM’ to make Notezilla work with Spanish, French, German, Italian & Dutch dictionaries.
Quote from ‘RM’
I found one solution through Jarte 4.1 from Carolina Road Software.
Jarte is a free WordPad Word Processing Engine (.tlx,.clx, .dic) that includes these spelling dictionaries: English (American, British, & Canadian), Spanish, French, German, Italian, and Dutch.
Install Jarte on C:\ Disk and copy the two french spelling files
(sscefr.tlx and sscefr2.clx) in C:\Conceptworld\Notezilla\Dictionaries
and then, change the Main Dictionary language inside Notezilla Spelling Options for French (Canadian or European).
For example, try a simple text in French like Ceci est un essai (This is a test), with these errors Cecci esst un esssai, and the french spelling dictionary will correctly suggest Ceci est un essai.
Thanks for all the support and the awesome reviews.
One of our customers Harold Hauer has shown a way to access both Mac & Windows files from RecentX:
I have been using RecentX for a number of years on my PC. About a year ago, I cloned my PC laptop onto my (new) iMac. I am running Windows XP simultaneously with the Mac OS under VMWare Fusion. When I run in Unity Mode, the Windows windows appear separately as programs are called, within the Mac space. In this Unity Mode, the Recent X bar appears at the top of the desktop, just as in Windows and provides instantaneous access to Windows AND shared Mac folders and files! This program has really simplified working in both operating systems.
