Notepad: Neat trick for creating log files


You can decide what this trick can be used for. Conversation logs? Personal diary? It’s up to you.

  1. Open a blank Notepad file: Go to Start -> All Programs -> Accessories –> Notepad.
  2. Type “.LOG” (without quotes) and hit ENTER.
    SS-2010.08.05-10.06.07
  3. Save the file and close it.
  4. Open the file again and notice that Notepad appends the current date and time to the end of the file:
    SS-2010.08.05-10.08.48

Type your notes, conversation details, or deep, dark secrets. Every time you re-open the file it will add the current date and time.
