need 'always on top' e-Post-It 4 WinXP.
« on: July 12, 2017, 09:56 AM »
In Windows XP, is there some way to create temporary digital Post-It notes that are always on top of everything else? I mean; like, 3 or 4 word notes of temporary but extreme importance, like for example, 'FEED PKNG MTR 3PM', or similar temporary warnings. Maybe even with options like 'grab & move', fluorescent green or orange colors, flashing mssgs, variable font size.

are you just looking for freeware?  Or is payware good also?

I like and use Stickies. You can keep them on top, attached to different pages/URL's, on timers. But wait, there's more...  it's free ;D

I use Notezilla: http://www.conceptworld.com/Notezilla/

I've also used Tomboy: https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Tomboy
It's FOSS, but I found Notezilla the best option even having to pay.

I love Notezilla and personally, I wouldn't use anything else. It's well worth the price.

But if you'd like other options, there is a thread listing lots of other sticky note apps that are available, both freeware and commercial: http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=18605.0

I have to agree with Notezilla. I stopped using it temporarily when they converted to a subscription basis, but eventually Gautam convinced me to try the newer version and I have been using it again ever since!

That said, I was an early user of Stickies and donated to Tom Revell more than a couple of times as I was a heavy user of it. It wasn’t until I tried Notezilla that I stopped using Stickies. AFAIK Stickies is still developed and is as useful as it has always been.

Thanks!

Jim
