Quick or Fast Date & Time Insert

This is a very handy method of inserting the date and time (according to the Windows calendar) into a text document. I believe this only works in Notepad, not in MS Word or WordPad.

Steps to insert date and time into a Notepad .txt file:

  1. Click Start>> Run
  2. Type: notepad
  3. Push F5 on your keyboard

This simple shortcut can be very useful, especially when making logs or recording any kind of time-sensitive observations.
