Actual Tools / Articles / How to improve your work with any Notepad or Notepad replacement
Microsoft Windows Notepad or any other Notepad replacement is a simple text editor included with all versions of Microsoft Windows® since Windows 1.0 in 1985. Using it you can write, read or change small texts quickly, easily and without painful efforts. Independently of the fact whether you use standard Windows Notepad or some other Notepad replacement programs, you can significantly improve them by adding new functions of the product Actual Title Buttons.
Actual Title Buttons will ease your life and further improve your Notepad experience. It consists of several tools.
Want to have a cup of coffee? Need some break but have no time to reload programs again? With Actual Title Buttons you can add new Minimize Alternatively button, now you can reduce your Notepad either to the system tray or to any place on your screen. Click the application's icon which is now placed next to the clock and the window will be restored. Very convenient, isn't it? Now you don't have to minimize and restore Notepad window again and again.
Freeing up taskbar space is a wonderful idea especially when you don't have to close down your programs to do it. Reclaim your desktop and keep track of the important programs you work with all day long.
You can also minimize Notepad into a small icon, which is placed on the screen. You can drag this icon anywhere on the screen and choose its position and size. If you then double-click it, the default action is to restore the normal window and remove the icon from the desktop/screen.
An editor from Lockergnome Chris Pirillo says,
It is also especially useful if you need to drag-n-drop something to your Notepad document.
Another way we recommend to quickly insert some information into the Notepad document from any external source (Internet browser, message window etc.) is using Copy to Clipboard/Paste from Clipboard buttons: switch to a source window, select the desired information, click the Copy to Clipboard button, switch back to Notepad, and click the Paste from Clipboard button. Using these buttons to operate with Windows® clipboard is far more quicker than using the commands of the same name in window's Edit main menu, especially when using such alternative input device as touch screen (for example, on Tablet PC).
With the help of the Roll Up button you will be able to minimize windows in such a way that only title bars remain visible.
But how can it help at work with Notepad?
In case you are surfing the web and find some data you can include them into Notepad. Just click the Roll Up (which then will change its icon to ) to move Notepad out of your way and when it is required again press the Unroll. A flash-like action. Ingenious and beneficial discovery at work. It's better than minimizing it to an icon in case you like to keep it in view!
