Tray Timer is a small Windows application designed specifically for helping you time you activities with the aid of a stopwatch.

The advantages of being portable

Since this is a portable program, it is important to mention that it doesn’t leave any traces in the Windows Registry.

You can copy it on any USB flash drive or other devices, and take it with you whenever you need to work with a timer on the breeze, without having to go through installation steps.

Unobtrusive running mode

Tray Timer runs quietly in the system tray without interfering with your work. You can access the program’s features by performing a right-click mouse operation on its icon from the system tray.

Main features

Tray Timer gives you the possibility to show or hide the timer, start, pause, stop, or reset the stopwatch, run the utility at Windows startup, as well as enable or disable alarms. When it comes to setting up alarms, you can make the app play a preset sound notification every minute or hour.

Where it falls short

On the downside, you cannot save the time results to a file on your computer, print the results, use hotkeys, upload user-defined audio files, and display custom text messages. The utility hasn’t been updated for a while, so it may cause compatibility issues on newer operating systems.


Since it doesn’t require much computer knowledge to set up the dedicated parameters, even less experienced users can learn to master the entire process in no time. Tests have shown that Tray Timer carries out a task quickly. It leaves a minimal footprint on system resources, so the overall performance of the computer is not affected.

Bottom line

All in all, Tray Timer proves to be a simplistic piece of software that comes bundled with limited features in order to help you time your activities.
