Free Timer

Free Classroom Timer

A free, full-featured and lightweight timer for Windows

Free Timer allows you to create countdown timers that display the remaining time as a colored section of a clock face.

You can set the time in seconds, minutes, and hours. The colored section of the clock face will display the time corresponding to the interval you set:

  • If the interval is one minute or less, then the timer counts in seconds
    (a full circle is 60 seconds).
  • If the interval is one hour or less, then the timer counts in minutes
    (a full circle is 60 minutes).
  • If the interval is 12 hours or less, then the timer counts in hours
    (a full circle is 12 hours).
  • If the interval is more than 12 hours, then the clock face will be covered entirely in the specified color. As for the countdown, the colored section will steadily decrease in size in accordance with the remaining time.

No matter what interval you specify, the countdown timer will move the second hand, which will move counter-clockwise.

Run multiple timers at once

If you need to start several timers at the same time, then you may simply launch the program however many times you need. You can also change the timers' colors so you can distinguish one timer from another.

Quick Start

Set an interval and press Start. When Free Timer finishes the countdown, the music you have selected will start playing and the timer will stop.

You can select which music or sound will play and how many times it will repeat. You can change the color of the countdown section, and you can also change the background color from white to black (Negative).

Full Screen

Free Timer has a special button for full-screen mode. Click this button, and the timer will expand to the size of the monitor or projector. This is especially convenient during exams, tests, reports, laboratory experiments, and so on. The timer will be visible from any part of the classroom or auditorium. To exit full-screen mode, press the Esc button or click on the screen.

Advance Notification

You can build a metronome (which ticks every second) so that it turns on several seconds before the countdown is finished. For example, a ticking metronome, set to begin one minute before the end of an exam, can attract the students' attention.

Free Timer can play MP3 music files

You can select the sound you want for a timer. Free Timer comes with several sounds and offers full access to your music library.

Run it from your portable USB flash drive

You can put Free Timer on a flash drive and run it directly from there. In this way, all your settings will always be with you, the settings will be stored in file Data.ini. Download: Free Timer Portable.
Just extract it to any folder where you want to store it and run FreeTimer.exe in order to launch timer.
