    Right now, my desktop is just littered in .txt files because when I'm writing notes, or a to do list, or get an idea and want to write it down, I open up notepad and just save it to my desktop.

    Here's what my desktop looks like:

    As you can imagine, this is quite messy, not very organised and makes it difficult to find things again.

    I was just wondering if anyone knows any software that I can use to take notes more efficiently.

    Ideally, I would be able to flick between different files/tags, a bit like on outlook but with text instead of spreadsheets. Maybe the names of the files down the left and when you click on them, the text automatically appears to the right.

    Thanks!

    Evernote hands down. I use it to store my swipe file, ideas, course notes, website clippings etc.
    If you're storing mainly text, you probably won't reach the limits of the free version.

    +1 for evernote. You'll have your notes anywhere you go, just get the app for your mobile device as well.

    OneNote+AllMyNotes & Fences for desktop ETC

    Would probably help if you used a folder or two.

    Didn't like evernote at all.
