This list is that it is exactly what I've been looking for! Thanks for such a great tool.

To-Do DeskLists's development has been inspired by real situations at work or home when new small to-do's or thoughts come to mind while working and it is not efficient to place them into a complex to-do list software. There are several ways how to handle such fleeting ideas - write them on paper, store them in a text file, or forget them after a few seconds. Since none of these methods is efficient, To-Do DeskList was made to help with storing such tasks and thoughts into a well-arranged and well designed to-do list in a way as simple and fast as possible.

  • Simple, nice looking and easy-to-use interface
  • To-Do Notes placed directly on your desktop
  • Assigning priority levels to to-dos
  • All to-dos can have a reminder to a specific date and time
  • Hotkeys for adding a new to-do and displaying all to-do notes in front of other windows
  • Sorting To-Do Notes by priority or by date
  • Well-arranged to-do list on your desktop instead of a complex structure
  • Minimalistic design
Thank you so much for your amazing to do list - it is just what i need to sort my life out ;-) It really is amazing - its completely sorted out my desktop and masses of .txt files.

As such, To-Do DeskList aims to provide a fast and effective way to store your to-dos when you don't want or don't need to store them in a complex hierarchical structure and you prefer simplicity over thinking about how you should categorize your tasks etc. Oftentimes, capturing a task doesn't take more than a few words to write down, and you can avoid opening a complex to-do list software altogether. For these situations To-Do DeskList was made.

With a simple and friendly interface, To-Do DeskList tries to offer an easy way to jot things down and receive notifications for the tasks at the time you specify.

It is an easy way to keep track of your daily tasks and make sure you do not forget them. it installs quickly and handling it is no difficult task.

To-Do DeskList has some pretty powerful options itself. For instance, the freebie allows you to synchronize the tasks across multiple computers or share your to-do lists with other users of the program, based on an invitation code.
