Automatically appending the time and date to text files using Notepad

This content is 20 years old. I don't routinely update old blog posts as they are only intended to represent a view at a particular point in time. Please be warned that the information here may be out of date.

I found this little nugget of information which may be useful for anyone looking to automatically append the time and date to a text file each time it is edited with Notepad.

According to the Made with Notepad campaign website, it works for versions of Notepad from Windows 95 onwards, and I have tested it on Windows XP Professional (SP2).

Simply start the text file with .LOG and save. From then on, the current date and time will be added to the end of the document each time it is opened in Notepad.
