Useful Notepad Trick !

This is real cool for people who use notepad to write down any info on a day to day basis.


Open a blank Notepad file

* Write .LOG as the first line of the file, press enter.

* Save the file and close it.

* 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.

Chatted with a Sony tech who told me to do the following which worked for me:

On the computer, browse to the C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc folder.
In the etc folder, open the hosts file using the Notepad software.
At the bottom of the hosts-Notepad window, delete ::1 local host line from the file.
If there is a # symbol before the 127.0.0.1 IP address, delete the # symbol.
On the hosts-Notepad menu bar, click File.
In the File drop-down menu, click Save.
Close the hosts-Notepad window.
