It's possible to make "Notepad" (you'll find it in your Windows Programs) add timestamps to information. This is a useful feature to keep track of messages or notes while surfing.

Begin by launching Notepad (from the Start Button, point to "All Programs" then "Accessories" and click "Notepad".
Now, in the first line type a full stop followed by LOG (in capitals) and press Return. Save the file with a suitable name, eg "Mynotes" and place a shortcut on the Windows Desktop or Taskbar for future use.

When the file is next opened the date and time will be added to the end of the log, which serves as a timestamp for the next entry!
