Organize Your Homework

Introduction: Organize Your Homework

If you are struggling to keep up with your homework and need a way to organize it, a "Desktop To-Do List" is a good way to go about it.
A free To-Do list can be found here.

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Installing Your To-Do List

If you are using the To-Do Desklist recommended on the intro page, once installed you will see an example of your to-do list.
Once you have clicked this you will be able to choose what happens when this is clicked, I recommend "Show Extended Note" on a double click. This means that you will be able to view your reminders in full detail.

Step 2: Adding "To-Do Leaves"

Now, if you click on the icon on the bottom right of your screen (It is a blue tick on a black square) it will show all the items in your to-do list. Now right click this and press"Add To-Do"
Then you can fill in the boxes with what you need (For example see third picture).

Step 3: Viewing Your New Item

Once you have added your To-Do item, it will appear at the bottom right hand corner of the screen, then if you set up the click action as advised, you can then double click it to view the extended note.

Step 4: Final List

Once you have added all you need you can click the icon to see anything you have to do.
Congratulations, it is now a lot easier to keep track of your homework!
Please comment with your feedback. :)

    Can you arrange to do items in order of priority, or only in the order the item was added?

    There is an option to set things to different priorities, so you will be able to arrange your items as needed (:

    Thanks. I have been using a Palm PDA with Palm Desktop Software for a number of years. I have about decided I like a piece of paper for a "to do" list, though. The Palm is great for calendar events, address information, and for memo notes.
