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.

With sticky notes, you hardly have to put effort to take notes, set reminders, etc. Just jot down & move on with your task at hand. Notezilla allows you to create attractive and realistic sticky notes to make the desktop look more colorful and beautiful.

It works smoothly on both phones & tablets.

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.’

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 :)

Sticky Notes & ‘Show Desktop’ feature of Windows

Dear Notezilla users,

The ‘Show Desktop’ icon in the Windows taskbar intends to show the complete desktop without any windows. This icon includes Notezilla sticky notes too. Clicking on the ‘Show Desktop’ icon will hide all sticky notes also.

For this reason, Notezilla installs another icon called ‘Bring Notes On Top’ in the same taskbar. Clicking on this icon will bring the notes on top of all the open windows. Alternatively, you can use the hotkey Ctrl+Shift+T to bring the notes on top.


A must have document, folders and website launcher!

Thanks to Lee Garber for his excellent review on RecentX Launcher

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!

Notezilla with other language dictionaries

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.

Sticky Note With Unicode Support

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.
