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.
  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:

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