Notezilla: Better alternative than Microsoft Sticky Notes for Windows

There are several users who use the simple sticky Notes app that is shipped with Windows (Available for Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10).

‘Sticky Notes’ for Windows is simple, does its job, and it is free.

But then, we always expect more of the things we get, especially if there is an advanced or better alternative out there. Digital sticky notes are capable of many more things. They are not meant to stay idle on your Windows desktop.

This post is for all of you who want more out of your sticky notes experience, all of you who want additional features from digital sticky notes and a nudge to those users requesting Windows to look beyond the basic features that the default Sticky Notes app provides.

So, is there any better or maybe more advanced alternative or replacement for the Windows Sticky Notes? Yes, there is!

Notezilla, a sticky notes software for Windows & phones, has demonstrated extra-ordinary potential of sticky notes.

Attaching a sticky note to all pages of a website in Notezilla

Notezilla lets you stick Post-It® like sticky notes to web pages, documents, folders in Windows Explorer or any app window.

Sticking a sticky note to a single web page is pretty straight forward in Notezilla. However, sometimes you may want to have the sticky note always visible for all pages of a website.

Example: You may be researching multiple products sold on a website, like eBay, Amazon, etc.

Watch this short video that describes this feature:

For more tutorial videos, check out this page.

Notezilla shows & hides a sticky note based on the title of any window (Internet Browser, Windows Explorer, or any program window). When associating a window with a sticky note, you can edit the window title & add wildcard asterisk (*) before the window title, after the window title, or on both sides of the title.

Stick-Note-To-Window

To edit a window title, double click on it & add asterisks as per your requirements.

As shown in the above picture, the sticky note will stick to all pages of the Amazon.com website.

An effective way to deal with low priority tasks

Today I am going to show you a self-invented technique that ensures that you take up & complete those ‘Do-it-later‘ low priority tasks. It has been working well for me.

At work or home, often, we have a list of tasks that we categorize under ‘Do-it-later.’ But, just like ‘Tomorrow never comes‘, even ‘Later never comes‘. Because you will always have some high-priority tasks precede the low-priority ones.

Unless you add some importance to the task & schedule it for a particular day, you will (almost) always find it getting dragged to the future.

Here is a technique:

STEP 1: List all your ‘Do-it-later‘ tasks in a task-management/note-taking tool. Make sure your tool supports reminders. I am using Notezilla sticky notes app for this purpose.

I added all the tasks to a checklist sticky note in Notezilla & set the note title to ‘Take one task today’. The title needs to be motivating. Don’t set the title to ‘Do it later’ :).
Take one task today - sticky note
STEP 2: Set a recurring reminder on that note so that you are reminded every day or every weekend. That’s it. When setting a reminder, choose that time of the day when you are most likely to pick a less-important task.

Now, when you are reminded, choose any task that you can start on that day. You don’t need to complete the job that day. You can just set the momentum by starting it. The important part is that you only have a focus on one task at this instance.
The advantage of listing all tasks in a single note is that you have a choice to pick any of the tasks based on the amount of free time you have on that particular day.

This method looks simple but it is very effective. One – All the tasks are listed in a single place, Two – You are forced to pick a task & Three – It gives you the liberty to pick any one task based on your convenience.

Of course, no tool or technology can conquer man’s laziness :). When you are reminded of these tasks everyday/weekend, your discipline & commitment will decide the success of this technique.

Attaching digital sticky notes to folders in Windows File Explorer

We create sticky notes for various files. But you can now create sticky notes and attach to a particular file, folder, website, etc. instead of just having them on your desktop. The note will pop up whenever you open that particular file or website and will disappear otherwise.

All this is possible using Notezilla, a sticky note app for Windows, Android, iPhone/iPad and other devices.

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.

Sticking a note to Windows File Explorer

Many of our users had this question- “Using Notezilla, how do I stick notes to folders in Windows Explorer?”.

Stick note to folder

The process of sticking notes to a folder is the same as sticking notes to any other website or document using Notezilla. However, to make it work correctly, there is a setting in Windows Explorer that needs to be enabled.

We have a short video that explains all the steps:

Notezilla sticks sticky notes to different web pages, documents, folders & emails based on the title of the window. In the case of Windows Explorer, by default, the title of the window is the folder name. So here comes the problem. If you have multiple folders with the same name, then the sticky note would show up on all those folders because of the same window title, which we do not want.

To solve this, we have to enable a setting in Windows File Explorer – “Display the full path in the title bar.”

On Windows 10/7, Open the file explorer and click on the ‘View’ option and select ‘Folder Options.’

Under the View tab of the folder options, you would also see a note “Classic theme only” against this setting. It only means that the full path will be shown only in the Classic Windows theme. Other themes will use the full path internally (which is what Notezilla requires).

Just enable the option mentioned above and also depicted in the below picture.

Folder options

That’s it. You are now all set and running.

So how about giving it a try today.

The best part of Notezilla is that it can sync notes between your mobile and PC or laptop! Therefore, you have the exact notes at both places! Try the sync feature today! You will surely love it.

Showing the desktop sticky note from any memoboard

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 function 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.’

Stick to Desktop menu in Notezilla

Alternatively, you can also right-click on the note and choose ‘Stick to Desktop -> Show the desktop note’ from the menu.

Sticky note titles are back in Notezilla 8

Thanks a lot to all the users who emphasized on the importance of sticky note titles.

We just released Notezilla 8.0.14 with the title feature.

You can download it from here.

Watch a short video depicting this feature:

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.

Notezilla Customer Story

Here is what Kris wants to share

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.

Thanks :)
