Who knew the humble Windows Notepad was capable of anything other than, well, taking text only notes.
If you’re searching for a simple application to write a diary or take daily notes, look no further than Notepad. So, what’s new you ask ?
Well, with this tip you can make notepad automatically add the current day and time to a document as soon as you open it and save you the headache of doing so yourself.
To accomplish this:
- Open Notepad (START->Run->notepad.exe)
- Type “.LOG” on the first line of the new document.
- Save the file and close Notepad.
Now when you open the same file again, you’ll see that Notepad would have added the current Date and time to the document automatically.
Write your entry for the day and close the file. Everytime you open the file, Notepad will add the current timestamp on a new line saving you the effort to do the same.
