.LOG file is automatically generated when you install the software.

For example when the software installed there is an automatically file that is save and it was a .log file while the .TXT file it was created by the user that is being saved.

You have actually answered your own question already. 

The difference lie on when you use the two different files. The .LOG file requires the installation of the programs while the .TXT files needs the user to modify, create data through it,

But we can say that .LOG files is under the .TXT file, because .TXT is the default way to save files in a notepad. So we can conclude that both are the same and different only on when to use it.

Hope this answered you question about the difference of the .LOG and .TXT file in terms of usage and differentiation.

Basically, there is no significant difference between the except the usage and the file extension.

Obviously the name for .LOG is use to log and the .TXT is use to save important text. This the primary difference. But both can be read and edit in the same text editor and both can be change to each others file extension. Now why .LOG?

It simply because it is to identify that it logs different actions, event or happening on what you are doing. Oh yeah this is automatic.

The .TXT is to simply edit text that you want to keep because it might be important.
