Like most of us, I have more information that I can remember in my head, (from work todo list, home todo list, honey todo list, kids schedule, code snippets, reminders, shortcuts that I want to remember, things that I would like to read later). I struggle with keeping all these in my head. I have tried virtually all todo lists, note taking apps (that I can think of), without much success.
I am looking for a non-intrusive pop up reminder that would randomly show short notes on my windows desktop, to help me remember that. I am envisioning random pop-up notification for my personal notes.
There used be a Growl for Windows, that shows such popups, without interfering with workflow. It is not developed anymore with Windows 10 notifications. But I am using Windows 7.
Things I have tried so far with little success:
- Task Scheduler to show messages (it is not easy to add messages)
- OneNote/Evernote to keep all my notes, but I forget to look at that!
- Sticky Notes (but it gets overwhelmingly long)
- Some free reminder apps, but they need to set to fixed time/date, I am looking for a random note reminders.
I am looking for a simple, random non-intrusive pop up that randomly shows notes from a source file (preferably text file).
