OrangeNote – Note taking program and manager

OrangeNote is a free WPF-based text note manager for Windows (and Mac) with a dash of eye candy. The program allows you to store an unlimited number of text notes that can be tagged and pulled up from the database at any time with a quick full-text search. OrangeNote also functions as a clipboard manager allowing you to copy and keep unlimited number of text items on the clipboard.

Whenever you need to jot down something like a phone number, an address or any text clipping, press the hotkey combination (default is CTRL+WIN+N) to create a new note. Type the note and apply a tag, if you wish to. Closing the note automatically saves it.


All created notes can be accessed by pressing another hotkey (CTRL+Space) or from the system tray icon. From here you can edit or delete a note. OrangeNote will also capture all text clippings you copy to the clipboard and save them as well.


You can also assign custom hotkeys to individual clippings and paste them into any running program, so that notes that needs to repeatedly typed like an address or bank card number become as quick as a single keystroke.

OrangeNote is fully customizable. You can change it’s appearance, color, hotkey behavior, clipboard size, auto save interval, etc. The version I tried is free, but there is also a Pro edition which is available through TrialPay (a method where you get a product free with another product you buy). The advantage of acquiring the Pro edition is that your notes get synchronized online.

The task manager is ideal for real-time analysis of CPU and memory utilization. It even displays a short history of CPU utilization in the form of a graph.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
