How to Create Clock Using Notepad


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: 
  1. Go to the Desktop. (You can do it anywhere. But desktop will be more convenient.)
  2. Click right mouse button and select Text Document to open Notepad. (Or Press Start + R > type Notepad > hit Enter
  3. Now copy the following code and paste it in the newly created text document. 
  4. Save the file as Clock.bat (Save it on Desktop or anywhere you like).
  5. Now you will see a batch file named Clock.bat
  6. Double click on it to see the result! 

@echo off
Title DOS Based Date and Clock
color b
cls
: Clock
cls
echo 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!
