Simple Notepad Snippet Store

Website - Tip

by ClifNotes and BrettsReviews


Thanks for this tip Brett. I've always kept a notepad just a click away. I don't use Windows Notepad any more. I use a better notepad called MetaPad. It lets me make and click on links in it. It also has more text editing features and a file viewer quick launcher.


When I'm working on my computer, I often need to temporarily store a snippet of information such as a web link, a reference to another document or just a reminder to myself to check into something later. There are a number of ways such a "snippet store" can be implemented, including the use of "Sticky Note" programs, some of which are quite sophisticated.


However, if you like to keep things simple, you can use Windows Notepad to create a quite functional snippet store.
