Is your desktop covered with little bits and pieces of paper, each with an important idea, address, or appointment scribbled on it? You know that's not really a filing system, right? Sometimes you have a little bit of information you need to capture, but maybe it's not significant enough to add a contact record or set up a meeting in your PIM. That's where Flashnote could come in handy.

With this tool, it's easy to jot down those little notes you need to keep track of, but which don't warrant the full treatment of creating a full-on document to have to manage (and lose) on your computer. Use it to record notes, to-do items, and all those little things that make your desk look like an explosion in a Post-It factory. A quick hotkey combination brings up a window for you to type into. Categorize your notes so that you can find them when you need to get the information back from them. This is a lightweight app, so there's no provision for saving images or doing any fancy formatting in there, but it should do just fine with the odd email address, website URL, or brilliant idea you come up with.

Flashnote is a free download. It's a Windows application.
