Simple Timer is a Desktop Utilities software developed by Samuel Sutch. After our trial and test, the software is proved to be official, secure and free. Here is the official description for Simple Timer:

Brothersoft Editor: This is an Activity Timer written in C# .NET. It features the global key commands, alt+spc to start/stop the timer and crtl+alt+spc to reset the time, allowing for unobtrusive and Simple Time tracking.

Explanation
I wrote this timer because there were no simple timers out there on the 'Net Worth using. The total size of the EXE is less than 36kb. It utilizes the UserActivityHook class introduced on codeproject.com for the global key commands. Everything else is stock .NET. This would work great as an example of using the UserActivityHook class (everything from KeyDown, KeyPress and KeyUp usage to canceling the bubbling of events).

As of 1.1, users are able to run multiple instances and give them names. I also added the ability to control the timer from a context menu on the taskbar. While the timer is running, right-click on the taskbar item to use this functionality. When more than one timer is opened, global key commands work only for the first-opened timer (this is why I added the taskbar functionality).

As of 1.2, users can keep track of their start and stopping times using the new built-in logger. The triangle-button on the bottom slides out a log window which displays a log of starting, stopping and total times. This data can be selected using the top-left button and pasted into an Excel document for printing or reporting.

As of 1.3 a ton of functionality has been added while simplifying the interface. The main interface buttons all Now use images in addition to text for both recognizability and accessibility. Users now can right-click anywhere on the form to access a contextual menu with preferences and new modes of operation. Timer now provides a Countdown Timer as well as the regular stopwatch. Switch between them using the contextual menu. Users can now also change the transparency of their timers and set them to always stay on top, as well as tell the timer to alert them at preset intervals of time. All of this new functionality and image
you can free download Simple Timer 1.4.3.3 Beta 1 now.
