Organize your notes using KNotes

Knotes is an useful small application for managing your notes. It comes as a part of KDE PIM Package.


This is how Notes appear on the Desktop. It has a decent interface. Notes are saved by the date and time they were created, Of Course it can be changed. The Pin on the top left gives Notes a nice visual appeal.


By default the background color of notes is yellow and text color is black. It can be changed in the settings. Settings section also has the option to change the default Width and Height of the notes. Though notes can be resized manually using mouse.


One very nice feature of KNotes is sending the Notes to anyone through mail. Default mail client for sending Notes is kmail but it can be changed to any other mail client like Evolution in Action settings.


Notes can be sent or received over a network. Changes can be done in the Network settings.

Good Points

  • Alarm: You can set alarms
  • Mail: Mail your notes
  • Send Notes over netork
  • Good GUI: background color of the notes can be changed

Bad Points

  • Not Optimized for both Mouse and Keyboard: There should have been more keyboard shortcuts for managing the notes
