[Windows Only] If you have a great deal of text data that you need to organize, and you don’t care if it looks fancy, you could always use a simple application like Qeepit. It allows you to write and organize notes in plain text. There are no pictures, fonts or links. What you see below is what you get.
A few years back, a reader had asked me if there was a PIM (Personal Information Manager) available that kept its information in text files. Fortunately for them, I was able to recommend QeepIt, because I had used it before.
QeepIt’s notes can be organized into Groups, and those groups are simply folders inside the main FileStorefolder. Each note is a text file, as you can see in this image:
If needed, any application that can read text files can also use QeepIt notes. For programmers, and others who extensively work with text files, this could be a big plus.
There are a few other features that make QeepIt a good option for taking notes. Each group of notes can have its own index mask which appears beside the notes. It can be easily customized by simply clicking once into the index to modify it. The index mask is shown below, outlined in green.
Making changes to a note is just as easy. Double click inside any note and type away on it. Notes can also be Lockedand Hiddenif needed, to prevent accidental changes or lost privacy.
Qeepit includes manuals and supports the use of three languages, English, German and Italian.
Below are some snap-shots of the menus in QeepIt, so you get an idea about the various options available in this freebie.
The last thing I’ll mention is that QeepIt is completely portable. It stores all of its notes and settings inside the program folder. The program folder can be copied onto a USB flash drive or other portable storage, and it will run just as well from there.

Techie Buzz Verdict:
If all you need are simple text notes, portability and compatibility with other software, QeepIt may be just what you need to keep yourself organized.
