It has been a long time since I've posted about notepad tricks last time. Today I'm gonna share another funny notepad trick. This time you will learn how to create a Clock with date and time in notepad. You can also edit the code by yourself. But incorrectly altering the code may result failure. So try it carefully . . .
There are many other notepad tricks published in this site. You can read these here:
Okay let's start. All you need to do is just copy the following code and paste this in a notepad document. Then save it as batch file I mean saving with .bat extension. Follow the steps below:
- Go to the Desktop. (You can do it anywhere. But desktop will be more convenient.)
- Click right mouse button and select Text Document to open Notepad. (Or Press Start + R > type Notepad > hit Enter)
- Now copy the following code and paste it in the newly created text document.
- Save the file as Clock.bat (Save it on Desktop or anywhere you like).
- Now you will see a batch file named Clock.bat
- Double click on it to see the result!
@echo offTitle DOS Based Date and Clockcolor bcls: Clockclsecho Current Date: %date%echo .............echo .............echo Current Time: %time%goto Clock
Customize the Code: You can also customize the code as below-
- You can change the Title of the code. Look at the title- Dos Based Date and Clock. You can use any name instead of the blue part.
- You can also change the color. Here I've used b for Aqua. You can use- 0 for black, 1 for blue, 2 for green, thus you can test 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, a, c, d, e, f. Each one will give you a different color!
