Ten Timer is a free multiple stopwatch counter for Windows. Up to 25 counters are available for countup and countdown, each. This means that a total of 50 timers can run at the same time. No installation is required, portable app. Minimizes to the system tray when not needed, while keeping track of time, of course.
By default ten stopwatch counters are available in the left column and another ten in the one on the right. Left ones are countup, and the ones on the right are for countdown. By selecting Configure from the top left corner menu, it’s possible to decrease or increase the number of timer.

Controls for starting and stopping timers and accessing settings are next to each counter. Countdown timer settings are different from the countup settings.
Countdown has the countdown time setting in hours, minutes and seconds. This needs to be setup otherwise there won’t be countdown. Alarm is also only available for the countdown counters. Melody can be changed to any WAV audio file of your choosing.
All the way at the bottom of the main interface, buttons for starting and stopping all the timers at once are located, next to the reset all counters button. That pretty much wraps it up when it comes to the interface, it’s very simple and to the point.
