Tag Archives: notepad tweaks


You must have seen this a million times before; though it’s too old I still believe it should be useful for those who never heard this trick before. This is for people who use notepad to write down any info on a day to day basis or just like a Diary!

  1. Open a blank Notepad file
  2. Type .LOG as the first line of the file, followed by an Enter. Save
    the file and close it. [ make sure that you are typing the .LOG in capital letters ]
  3. Double-click the file to open it and notice that Notepad appends the current date and time to the end of the file and places the cursor on the line after.
  4. Type your notes and then save and close the file.
  5. Each time you open the file, Notepad repeats the process, appending the time and date to the end of the file and placing the cursor below it.
