Keep ToDoList on top when visible
Keeps ToDoList above other windows when it is not minimized. However, to avoid possible confusion ToDoList is made non-topmost whilst it is maximized, else it would prevent you accessing any windows beneath it.

By default, ToDoList will adopt the state it was last in before it was closed. This option ensures that you will always see ToDoList when it starts up regardless of the state it was last in.

Allow multiple instances of ToDoList
By default, ToDoList restricts itself to a single instance and opens new tasklists within that one instance. If you would prefer to have a separate instance of ToDoList per tasklist or per configuration, then select this option.

Global Hotkey
Allows you to define a key combination that when pressed will bring ToDoList to the foreground whether its behind other windows, minimized or hidden in the system tray. This option is only enabled when the above option to “Allow multiple instances” is Disabled, otherwise there would be confusion about which window to bring to the foreground.

Enable '.tdl' as a file extension for tasklists
Allows you to open tasklists by double clicking them in Explorer.

Enable 'tdl://' as a url protocol
Allows you to reference tasklists and tasks in web pages.

Enable delayed loading of tasklists
To speed up the start-up time of ToDoList, you can have ToDoList open the last active tasklist and only open other previously open tasklists when you switch to them.

Keep track of most recently used (MRU) tasklists
By default, ToDoList maintains a list of the last 16 tasklists that you opened and displays these in the File menu. If you don't require this feature then deselect this option.

Clear MRU
If your most recently used list contains old or deleted tasklists then click this button to reset the list.

Automatically check for updates on startup
Updates to ToDoList can be downloaded from the web. If this option is enabled, the first time ToDoList is started each day it will check for updates and advise if there is a new release available.
