Thought of posting a simple feature of notepad that might be useful for many who log things in a file for various purposes, mostly this can be used for simple things that needs to be logged. In Notepad, type “.LOG” (case sensitive) in first line of the file and save it, now close and reopen the file, current date and time will be inserted in the last line and you can type information and save.
