Windows Tricks - 1

Today we'll talk about two tricks here.
1) Virtual Diary
You want a quick diary on your pc, but dont want to install a separate program for this purpose. And writing notes in a word processor by giving date-time everytime isn’t a good idea.

Try this:
Type .LOG (remember .log or .Log wont work)

Save the file with any desired any name and close the notepad window.

Now everytime you will try to open this notepad file….the current date and time will be already placed there. So, this way it’ll become a virtual diary.

2) Windows Key + Arrows
Just try them out..
Windows key + Left: docks current window to the left side of the screen.
Windows key + Right: docks current window to the right side of the screen.
Windows key + Up: maximizes and/or restores foreground window.
Windows key + Down: minimizes active window.
