Notepad gadget or note editor?

On a sidenote, I normally don’t recommend using a notepad gadget. Sticky notes on a desktop can be useful to remember a few things, but they will often get filled with notes so quickly that managing the notes will become a major pain.

So, what I recommend is to either have a really good to-do list software or a secure notepad editor. One of my favorite editors for is Roboform’s secure Safenote editor. You can organize your notes (which are safely stored and encrypted) in folders and sub-folders. The only downside is that Roboform notes do not allow you to format your text.

Do you know any other good notepad / sticky notes gadgets or want to let us know how this one worked for you? Post a comment below.

    Hey! So I’m new here in this website and I just downloaded this gadget but I cant seem to make it work? When I try to install it, it keeps saying that it’s not a valid gadget package. Any suggestions on how I can make it work?
