Geek GirlI like to make “things to do” lists in Notepad, but I also want to timestamp them, so I have an idea of when was the last time I made a list.

There’s a really easy way to do this, and I want to share it with you!

First, create a blank text file in Notepad with .LOG as the first line of the file, followed by a carriage return. Save the file with the name of your choice. (Double check to make sure that Notepad is your default handler for .txt files!)

Then, 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. Type your notes and then save and close the file.

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.
