    Post How to make Notepad act like a log file.

    Open Notepad.



    Type in it: .LOG

    Save it as: .LOG.txt

    Now everytime you open this file, it will display display Time & Date. Then when you make any entries and save it, the next time you open it it will again display the fresh time & date. This way a sort of a log is created of the entries you make.

    Yup. This is a good old tip. I used to use it during XP days.
