Efficient Sticky Notes
Transfer your sticky notes from the real world to your desktop with Efficient Sticky Notes

If you’re one of those people constantly writing little notes to yourself, you might be bemoaning the fact your desktop looks messy and cluttered. This is where Efficient Sticky Notes comes into play. The program allows you to build up a collection of sticky notes which you can – when the need arises – place on your desktop to remind you of its content. And unlike real sticky notes, these can be tweaked without having to tear up the original and start again.

Once installed, launch the program and you’ll see a window where all your notes are stored. Create a new note and start typing: click Save and close and the sticky will appear on your desktop. As things stand it doesn’t look particularly striking, so reopen the note (either from the main window or by double-clicking the note itself) and start playing with the advanced controls: change the sticky colour and font text to make it stand out more (or less). You can even link files to your notes for easy access, plus decide if the sticky is currently displayed on the desktop or not.

Notes are shown in the main program window where you can organise them into custom groups. The biggest disappointment is that notes can’t be scheduled to appear at certain times, or linked to alarms – for that you’ll need to take a look at Efficient Software’s EfficientPIM software.
 

Verdict:

A decent tool for managing virtual sticky notes on your desktop, but Efficient Sticky Notes is let down by a lack of scheduling features.

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
