A neat trick to use notepad as logger

notepad

Here’s a simple trick in notepad that I have been using ever since I remember. I am surprised how few know about this.

Use notepad to log anything in 3 steps

  1. Open notepad.
  2. In the very first line input this .LOG Yes ‘dot’ followed by the word ‘log’ without a space.
  3. Save and close the file.

That’s it. You can choose whatever name you want.

Now whenever this file is opened, it gives you a convenient time and date. Just write your log entry after the date and time stamp and close.

Convenient isn’t it!!

Know any other trick similar to this, Would love to know about it. Share it here.
