Default How to insert static time using a laptop?

New to this. Sorry if very simple question. I'm using a laptop and the
suggested method of inserting static date and time of hitting CNTL+ doesn't
work. Is there another method?

Thanks much.

Don't have a lap top, but try Ctrl + ; for the date
See if Ctrl = Shift + : gives the time

That should be Ctlr+; or, as I prefer to write it, Ctrl-; but, in either
case, you don't hit the plus or minus sign key... those symbols are there to
link the characters you do type. You will actually only press the Control
key in conjunction with the semi-colon key. And this key combination works
with desktops and laptops (there is no difference between these two devices
for keystroke entries).

Not Ctrl-plus; it's Ctrl-colon (or Ctrl-Shift-semicolon)
