Free Timer

Free Timer Free Timer Dark

A free, full-featured and lightweight timer for Windows

Free Timer program 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, the timer counts in seconds
    (a full circle is 60 seconds).
  • If the interval is one hour or less, the timer counts in minutes
    (a full circle is 60 minutes).
  • If the interval is 12 hours or less, the timer counts in hours
    (a full circle is 12 hours).
  • If the interval is more than 12 hours, 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 counterclockwise.

To exit full-screen mode, press the Esc button or click on the screen.
