Desktop Countdown Timer
Desktop Countdown Timer is an easy to use piece of software created to provide you with a simple means of tracking the time you spend on the computer and limiting your activities to a certain duration.
Simple yet practical interface
Following a very brief and uneventful installation process, you can launch the program and begin working with it, setting up the precise number of hours or minutes that you wish to countdown from.
Desktop Countdown Timer’s interface is quite basic, and while it is far from impressive, it can surely be used by less experienced individuals, who just want an efficient tracker for their work.
Configure and run your timer
To set up a countdown, all you need to do is input the required duration, supporting hours, minutes and seconds, then press ‘Start’ for it to begin. When minimized, it can retreat to the notification area, yet when the time expires, a popup window will alert you that ‘Time Is Up’.
Moreover, Desktop Countdown Timer features some optional functions which enable you to run an ‘Action After Completion’, allowing you to ‘Play a Sound File’, ‘Show a Custom Message’ or ‘Shutdown Computer’. The timer can also be started or paused by means of the ‘S’ and ‘P’ keys on your keyboard, as well as reset (‘R’).
The application lets you create and save multiple configurations, which you can later load into Desktop Countdown Timer and reuse. It can easily serve as a reminder, since it can alert you when the previously defined amount has passed, and along with the custom message or the sound file will draw your attention, having you remember what was task you had scheduled.
Basic timing utility
To summarize, Desktop Countdown Timer is an efficient and user-friendly tool created to help you set up alerts, reminders or alarms based on a timer which you can manually configure and run whenever you need, supporting keyboard shortcuts for quick access.
