I was looking for tape or adhesive that can hang curtains to the dry wall. Does this or any other type you know of will attach strongly to fabric cotton and then adhere to dry wall?

This product has no sticky residue whatsoever and is not designed for your type of application. However you may want to try this or similar double sided tape...

Every close friend of mine is a GC and they always recommend paper tape. Mesh is considered only to be alright in small repair jobs because it probably won't crack f the rest of the joints are already done correctly... but will crack under any slight movements of the house. I'd do some research before retapping an entire project with mesh. This is an easily googlable subject.

Drywall tape is just a roll of narrow paper. No adhesive at all.

I've taped a lot of joints and by far the best is called "Crack tape". Home depot sells it online. It is super strong, doesnt splinter like mesh, and goes in really easy. Yes it's much more expensive vs this, but do you really want to tape again?

I am a painter by trade and actually paper tape is much stronger than mesh...i have made alot of money by people taping their basements out with mesh...it is easier but paper is easy once you practice...using mesh on more than a small repair is just asking for cracks...but hey live and learn

Mesh is used for holes/cracks in drywall. Tape is not only more affordable but easier to use and seamless.

Mesh is faster. Just needs two coats. Paper needs three coats. I always wonder why they don't make sticky paper tape so you only need two coats
