TimerTask is a free software that can run a program at scheduled time. It can also launch a website or logoff and shutdown PC. You just set the scheduled time (like 10:30) and specify the action that needs to be done at that time. You can even set time in minutes (like, after 45 minutes), and TimerTask will then perform the specified action at that time. Other similar software we reviewed earlier include Start My Day, and TimeComX.
Update (18th April, 2011): This program is not available anymore. You can try the above mentioned alternatives.
TimerTask supports following actions currently:
- Automatically launch a program
- Automatically open a document
- Show a notification window
- Automatically open a website
- Automatically logoff PC
- Automatically shutdown PC
Most amazing part of TimerTask is that it is extremely small in size. The utility is just 8 KB in size! That is quite unbelievable. TimerTask is also extremely easy to use by virtue of its minimalist interface.
