Quick Date and Time Insert

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

1) Click Start > Run
2) Type "notepad" without the quotes
3) Push F5 on your keyboard

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

    It doesn't seem to matter how Notepad is started, F5 still inserts time and date. It's true that it doesn't work in Wordpad but Alt+i,d gives the date and options for time, though sadly not both!
