Sandeep Agarwal

There are a number of task reminder tools out there and each boasts of its own unique features. But then, computer users are so consumed by the internet that they skip looking into their tasks list at times. So, we thought we would tell you about a simple trick to combine both of these.

This article explains how you may use your browser homepage as a task reminder. Moreover, it doesn’t require any tool or software. Here’s how to make it happen.

Step 1: Create an html file at some location in your computer. For example, I created a file named Reminder.html. Simply right-click on an empty space and create a new text file. Open it and save it as an html file.

Step 2: Open that file with a text editor and key in your tasks in the file in plain English, line by line.

Step 3: All you need to do now is, open the browser you use and point its homepage to this file. I tried it on Firefox. Navigate to Options –> Options –> General  tab. On the text box for Home Page paste the file location and click OK.

Next time you open your browser you will see your list of tasks. You may also create multiple files to categorize your tasks and point all of them to open as default homepages. So, are you going to change the way you try to remember tasks and make it simpler? You should, if you spend a lot of time on your browser.
