I don't know about you, but I've found that most of those sticky note and post-it note programs available offer simply too many features. Yes, that's right, too many features. Sure, sure, it is nice to have 50 different note pages and be able to change their size, put active links in them, send them via e-mail, etc., but really all most people want is a tiny little pad that we can jot notes on. And it would be nice if it didn't cost much, maybe even free.

QuickNotes fits these specs. When launched, it sits in your system tray. If you need to jot something down, just right click on the icon and a notepad pops up. Type away and don't worry about saving -- it happens automatically. There's nothing fancy going on here. The most exotic things you can do are changing background colors and fonts and inserting the date/time or a separator line.

Installation is simply unzipping the downloaded file into a new folder. You will probably also want to create a shortcut in your start-up menu so that QuickNotes will always be ready for you in the system tray. There's no real help file, nor does the website have any specific information, but you don't really need it --that's one of the benefits of such a simple program.
