Organize With Notepad

Do you use Notepad? Do you like to make lists for the things you need to get done throughout the day? Then this is the tip for you!

Okay, are you ready? This is a really cool trick! Did you know that you can use the Notepad application from Windows to write down any information you need to remember on a day to day basis? You know, you can use it to record any appointments you have or you can even use it to write out your grocery list. The options are endless. Want to learn more? Then read on!

1.) Open Notepad by going to Start, All Programs, Accessories, Notepad.



2.) Type .LOG (in all caps) as the first line of the file, followed by a carriage return (Enter). Then save this file and close it. (You could save it as example.txt, for instance).



3.) Now, navigate to where you saved the file and double click it. You may notice that Notepad appends the current date and time (system date and time) to the end of the file and places the cursor on the line after. With the date and time there, you will never forget to do something on a certain day. How’s that for a reminder?!



4.) Now, go ahead and type your notes. When you’re finished, save the file again and close it.



Each time you open the file, Notepad will repeat the process. So, each time, the new date and time will show up at the end of the file and it will place the cursor below it. You can then just type what you need to and save it all over again. It’s a never ending reminder and it doesn’t get any better than that, now does it?!

Go ahead and give it a try!
