Simple Task Logging Tool for Windows

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2006

After seeing "Quick-log your work day" in Lifehacker, I find it too troublesome to create vbscript just to perform simple file writing. So, I came up with my own quick-log tool using command prompt batch file.

Download it here: Simple Task Logging Tool


  1. Unzip the file.
  2. Put the log.bat file at your desktop.
  3. Double click on the file when you have something to log.
  4. Type in whatever you want, followed by 'Enter'.
  5. A log.txt file will be generated.

It runs properly on my Microsoft Windows XP Pro. Hope it works for you too.
