When logging into your database, the default login page is your Today page (which is otherwise accessible by clicking Today from your Left Menu Bar:
From your Today page, you'll see a menu running along the top of your screen that allows you to easily access important data that's not on the main Today page:

As you can see, this displays Recently Added Notes within your database. Note that above these Recently Added Notes you have several filter options to control the recent notes that are displayed:

Next to the Comment link is an Actions link. Clicking that link provides you with a method to delete a Note.
Finally, if the Note is linked to an account, contact or activity, you'll see that information listed as well.

You can use the Chart/List buttons in the top right corner of each of these to switch between a graph and a text view of this data. You can also hover over any of the colored pieces in the chart to view a total number and percentage that the piece represents:
