Tik-Tak is a small desktop enhancement utility whose purpose is to help you check out the time right from your screen and make use of a countdown timer in order to time different tasks and projects.
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 place a digital clock on your screen on the breeze, without having to go through installation steps.
You are welcomed by a small panel that reveals the current time (in hours, minutes, and seconds) and date. If you can’t work with the minimalistic window, you may switch to a full screen mode.
A small button integrated at the left corner of the main window enables you to switch between different time viewing modes. You can make the program reveal the current time, Internet time (BMT), universal coordinated time (UTC), or time elapsed since the system started.
Working with the stopwatch
Tik-Tak can easily transform itself into a stopwatch and gives you the possibility to start, pause, or stop the timer, as well as integrate dedicated buttons in the primary panel for controlling the stopwatch without having to perform a right-click operation on the clock.
The tool comes bundled with several tweaking parameters that help you hide or reveal the date and time zone, enable or disable the sound notifications that mark the passing of each second, as well as adjust the font size of the timer/stopwatch.
What’s more, you can alter the time zone, make use of preset hotkeys for fast operations, save the current settings to a file so you can upload them in the future, change the background color of the clock, adjust the transparency, and alter the time format.
All in all, Tik-Tak proves to be a handy clock and time management application that helps you check out the time using different viewing modes and work with a stopwatch.
