Please Note:
Todo 2.0 has/is being replaced by a newer version that looks and works much better. :)

What is Todo 2.0?
Todo 2.0 is a simple, yet effective program to help you keep track of all those things that you need to do (hence the name “Todo”). It automatically starts up with and shuts down with windows, and automatically saves your list.

Features and Screenshots
Below is a screenshot of what it looks like when it is open:

Main Window View

To view the details for a specific task, click the magnifying glass of that specific task.

To add a task, simply click on the “Todo List” menu, and click “Add Task”. Each task has several properties:

Adding a new task.

The “Task” is what appears on the main todo list.

Marking an item as “High Priority” gives it a yellow star and puts it on the first part of the todo list (so you won’t miss those important things! See the first screenshot to see what I mean).

Marking an item as “Completed” checks a checkbox next to that item. This can come in handy when you want to see what you have done in the past.

The long description is for extra details related to the task. These details aren’t visible from the main window, but are visible when you view the details of that specific task.

Once you add an item to the todo list, you can always go back and change it (or delete it). To modify an existing task, simply click the magnifying glass next to the task that you want to modify. You will then see something like the following:

Modifying a task

Once you make any changes you want to the item, simply click “Modify”. (If you want to delete the item, click “Delete”. You will then be prompted to make sure that you want to delete the item. If you clicked the magnifying glass by mistake, you can go back to the todo list by clicking cancel).

One of the neat features of Todo 2.0 is that it hides in the system tray (next to the clock in the bottom right of the screen) when you click the close button (sortof like MSN Messenger, for those who are familiar with it). To see the todo list again, simply click the todo list icon:

(In case you can’t tell, its the brown icon with the green checkmark and red x on it).

There is no need to worry about saving your todo list – Todo 2.0 does that for you. When you shut down your computer, Todo 2.0 automatically saves your list, and next time you start up windows, Todo 2.0 will automatically start up, and show your list of items.
