All through my PhD I pretty much used Windows Notepad exclusively and, of course, for writing my actual Thesis Microsoft Word. Word/Excel was used for tables etc.
So my main research tool was notepad.
People may have different needs but as I am completely blind formatting was rarely an issue for me.
With Notepad I used the following procedure.
In Notepad Press F5 to automatically insert the date and time.
Then basically type in any notes I needed.
In the rare event I had loads of notes I would use *** as a virtual bookmarker and simply use find to find the bookmark.
For Important websites I used the following procedure.
Again in Notepad press F5 to automatically store the date of website retrieval for reference purposes.
In your browser Alt D to jump to the address bar and then simply control C to copy the address – alt tab to notepad and paste in the link. Again for accurate referencing purposes in your thesis.
Back to the browser I would then F6 back down to the web page and press select A and copy all the text of the web page to the notepad file as well as a failsafe in case the webpage goes offline etc.
In extremely rare circumstance if there were loads of headings / tables and navigation was essential I simply save the web page for offline html reading.
As I say people’s needs may differ but I think the reading of content / analysis and then writing is probably more important than the tools used.
