How do I auto-save a text file at custom time intervals in Windows 7? For example, if I wanted to save a simple .txt document at specific times of the day.

    Don't use stupid notepad.

    Use something like Sublime Text or Coda. They keep unsaved changes to a file so if you edit a file and close ST and reopen it, your edit will still be there. And you can change "save_on_focus_lost" parameter to make it auto save (as seen here : http://www.rogcg.com/blog/2013/05/31/setting-auto-save-on-sublime-text-2)

      1. Install Notepad++
      http://notepad-plus-plus.org/

      2. open it.
      3. You will see a "Plugin" named drop down menu and after that click on "Plugin Manager"...
      4. You will find Auto save on the top of the list of available plugins....
      5. Enjoy...
