Countdown Timer is a free competent clock and time management utility that empowers Windows PC users to take full control over their timed notifications and timing their activities with an incredibly streamlined user interface and wide set of tools.

Developed from the ground up by Comfort Software Group, this Countdown Timer desktop app features one of the most extensive sets of time management tools that anyone can imagine, helping users of all knowledge levels to set a large variety of customizable countdown timers.

The app can manage any type of short-term timers that count toward various daily activities (finishing of productivity tasks, cooking, break timers…), important personal events (medical reminders, pregnancy-related events, meetings with friends and family…), the long-term events that are still months and years away (vacation and birthday reminders, Valentine's Day countdown timers…) and much more.

Here are some ideas for a countdown clock:

  • Expert Tea Steeping
  • Appointment Reminder
  • Break Timer
  • Cooking Timer
  • Birthday Countdown Timer
  • Graduation Countdown Timer
  • Pregnancy Countdown Timer
  • Sports Countdown Timer
  • Vacation Countdown Timer
  • Wedding Countdown Timer
  • Christmas Countdown Timer
  • Halloween Countdown Timer
  • New Year Countdown Timer
  • Saint Patrick's Day Countdown Timer
  • Thanksgiving Countdown Timer
  • Valentine's Day Countdown Timer

Free Countdown Timer is distributed in a form of an automated installer that can be easily deployed on any modern and legacy desktop and laptop PC machine, featuring even support for legacy versions of Windows OS such as Windows XP. The app is lightweight and fast, and therefore can easily run in the background and be an unobtrusive service that users can rely on to get accurate reminders featuring notification messages, strong audio feedback, or even playback of their favorite song.

The main dashboard of this app features a streamlined and easy-to-use interface that promotes an eye-catching listing of soon-to-expire countdowns and an easy way to add brand-new countdown timers. New timers can be added by simply clicking on the “Add” button at the top of the main dashboard screen, opening an extensive configuration popup window that features exact time configuration, label with a custom message, and Alarm settings (system sound or custom file playback, volume controls, repeat sound, snooze, and turn on monitor tool).

What`s new

The timer app has undergone various improvements, including changes to the form for editing timers, the ability for the main window to remain hidden on startup if it was hidden previously, and hiding of the audio slider when the "Turn on the volume" setting is unchecked. The overdue time label format in the alert window has also been updated, and a new timer mode "OnZero: Run as stopwatch" has been added. Additionally, some interface languages have been corrected, an empty folder creation issue has been fixed, and various other bug fixes and improvements have been made.
