EggTimer is a simple timer that is sort of like the cooking timer you might find in many kitchens. You set a time in minutes, it counts down the time, and an alarm goes off when the time has elapsed.
It starts with the counter running. It remembers the number of minutes to count from the last time it was run. It can start minimized and you can see the counter running in the minimized icon on the task bar. When the alarm goes off, it restores itself to the screen and flashes a few times. Just click close and it is gone. Just 2 clicks. One to start, one to close. Very simple.
It has a couple more bells and whistles. It can play any .WAV file as the alarm. It can count down or up. It can count from 0 to 9999 minutes. To keep things simple, the count time is entered in whole number minutes. Most egg timers work this way. It can also be run in clock mode where it will show the time of day instead of running the timer.
I shipped EggTimer with a few sample .WAV files. You can probably find quite a few more in your C:\WINDOWS\MEDIA directory. EggTimer has a popup dialog window to select the file and a test button to preview the sound.
This is a 32 bit program and will run on Windows ME, NT, 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8. It also runs OK on 64-bit systems.

Egg Timer for just $5 (Five Dollars). The program works fine even if you do not pay for it. There is no time limit. It will run forever. It is fully functional. No features have been removed. It contains no spyware, no advertising.
When Eggtimer closes it remembers all of its settings by saving them in the Windows Registry.
Run EGGTIMER-SETUP.EXE to install the program. This will create a folder, copy all the files to the folder, and create shortcuts on the desktop and the start menu. An alternate install method is to download the executable file EGGTIMER.EXE. Then just run the program. If you use this method, then to uninstall simply delete the files.
Open Windows Control Panel, select Add Remove Programs, select Egg Timer in the list of programs, and click OK. The uninstall program will then run and remove the program. If you installed the program manually then delete the files to uninstall the program. EggTimer does NOT alter the Windows Registry or any other system settings. It only creates and maintains the EGGTIMER.INI file in the same directory as the EGGTIMER.EXE file.
