Desktop Alarm Clock
Desktop Alarm Clock is a simple and useful tool that helps individuals, as the name hints at, input an alarm. In addition to that, they can see the current time.
This software utility does not require installation, which means that you can easily drop the program files to any location on the hard drive so as to run it. You can also copy it to a portable storage device, such as a USB flash drive in order to use Desktop Alarm Clock on any computer that you have access to. In addition to that, you should know that the Windows registry and Start menu/screen are not going to get updated with new entries.
The main window is very simple, presenting the current time (hours, minutes and seconds) and the hour at which the alarm is set. If this is off, then the program is going to display a message, namely “Alarm is off”.
In order to set up the time for waking up, you have to press the “Set” button and input the hours and minutes with the help of the Num lock part of keyboard. The only manner in which you can choose the position to change is by using the arrow keys.
The main screen is non-obtrusive, but if you feel it gets in the way, you can hide it to the system tray.
The developers provide users with Help contents on their webpage, along with other sounds for the alarm, in a WAV format. You can also use your own songs for this purpose, but remember that you have to place it in the directory where the EXE file of the clock is.
To sum up, Desktop Alarm Clock is a useful software application that can help you view the current time and set up an alarm. You can choose from several sounds, the interface is user-friendly, and the app is portable.
