Presentation Timer for Windows

· Liz Hermann Liz Hermann

Finding a timer that is compatible with your version of Windows is usually a challenge. If you are looking for a countdown timer that doesn’t require the download of a new version every time you update your Windows Operating System, then Stagetimer is the right solution for you. Stagetimer simply runs in the browser of your choice. You can control timers from anywhere and you get a simple magic link to share it with others.

How to use stagetimer.io

Go to stagetimer.io and click on “create a timer”. It will create a new timer for you and will then redirect you to the controller page. From here it’s very easy to set the duration and start the countdown.

On the controller page, simply copy and share a link with other staff to control and customize the timer. You can also share a viewer link that will give speakers access to a full-screen version of the timer.

Timers and messages can be set and controlled from any device that’s connected to the internet. Stagetimer works best with updated browsers and operating systems. Check out the minimum system requirements. Timers adjust to different screen sizes. When using time of day, the clock automatically adopts the timezone and time format preferences of the browser.
