This is a dummy application I created several years ago in some minutes' work before a presentation of mine, useful for speeches where keeping an eye on the allotted time is essential. Usually I keep it at some corner of my desktop, so I can focus on the presentation and yet always know how much time left I have. As some of my colleagues asked for it, I put this toy application into my downloads.

Just launch the application, right click and choose options to set your time, then start the timer from the popup menu or using the corresponding shortcut key.

Shortcut keys:

  • F1: popup the menu (right-click equivalent) and adjust basic options (seconds visibility, progress bar visibility, sound)
  • F2: start the timer
  • F3: stop the timer
  • F4: reset the timer
