MemPad : Structured Note Taking Application for Windows

Mempad is a plain text note taking application for Windows. It presents us with a structured note interface where we can put one note under a nodes or sub-nodes. The information is stored in a single file that we can  copy to another computer or share it with other users easily. It supports more than 20 languages and we can write the notes using Unicode. MemPad is a portable application and does not require any installation. We can download both the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of MemPad depending on the operating system version installed on our computer.

MemPad has a user interface that looks like just any other text editor, with a difference that we can arrange the text notes using a tree-view style structure on the left side. We begin by adding a single note, give it a title and then we can add more notes under the same node. The hierarchy of the notes could be nested at multiple levels. This index structure can be modified by buttons, context menu or hotkeys. Typically you would just right-click on an index entry or node to add more data under it.


MemPad offers all the usual editing functions such as cut, copy, paste, undo, date/time insert, drag & drop, insertion of web links, insertion of local files or folders and more. We can even use environment variables that expand to full paths when adding links to local files. For example, we can add link to Windows Notepad using the string %WINDOWS%\Notepad.exe,

After you have added many many notes, and you are not able to find something from the older notes, you can use the in-built search to find anything. MemPad saves all of your notes every 4 minutes so that you do not have to save them manually. In addition, it saves your notes before shutting down as soon as you close its window.
