Use FileNoter to quickly create a plaintext note file for any file through the context menu.

Detailed Info:

FileNoter can be used and adapted for any purpose. contains the compiled file (filenoter.exe), source (filenoter.ahk) and md5 hashes
FileNoter is made in Autohotkey

How to use fileNoter:

Setup: Put filenoter.exe in some folder and run it to add the context menu action (and its registry entries).
Use: Right click any file and select "FileNoter". That creates and opens a file with the same name but a .txt extension.
Example: For "filename.doc" FileNoter creates "filename.doc.txt". Add you notes to that file and save.

Remove: just run filenoter.exe directly again (that removes the context menu action and its registry settings) and then delete filenoter.exe & filenoter.ini
Move: move filenoter.exe and run it twice from the new location to adjust the context meny actions path. The setup the .ini again.

- You can add a special tag, custom extension and/or a datestamp (YYMMDD-HHMM or YYMMDD) to the name of the notefile by editing the filenoter.ini file that is created after filenoter has created its first note file.
- if you use the datestamp option you can later on quickly update the datestamped note by right clicking the source file and selecting "FileNoter".
Example: for "filename.doc" you have already created "filename.doc080225.txt". If today is 080416 and you again right click "filename.doc" and select "FileNoter" then "filename.doc080225.txt" is renamed to ""filename.doc080416.txt" and then opened.
