I'm wondering what is a decent free or cheap calculator app for Windows 10, that allows me to type in and edit previous calculations in a freeform notepad style, e.g.

10 + 29.99 + 5.2 - 18 = 27.19
427 - 34.50 = 392.5

And better yet, allows note taking in with the calculations.

Bonus points for any natural language handling, unit and currency conversion, etc :-) Though I'd settle for something much simpler.

If you use, or can adjust to, the "adding machine" method of data entry, then I highly recommend CalcTape. After getting so used to using a similar style physical calculator in my job I can't use a normal scientific entry method calculator by default any more, so I use this one instead of Windows default one. It allows you to comment, add notes, and change values, as well as save and come back to runs.

Have you tried Onenote?


It natively undertakes calculation - e.g. type in "(4*6+1)^.5=", then hit enter, and Onenote gives you 5 as the answer.


I haven't used it enough to test the limits of its abilities.


Speedcrunch is also great as a straight calculator - but does not allow notes within etc.
