The clock that comes in Microsoft Windows seriously lacks a feature that every ordinary alarm clock has. It cannot alert you on a preset time event like an ordinary alarm clock. Although there is a feature of scheduling tasks in Windows but it is not the same. The Free Alarm Clock software can fill in this void efficiently. The Free Alarm Clock is a wonderful alarm clock software jam packed with many features while still having a simple and straightforward user interface.
You can download the Free Alarm Clock software from its web site and it is only a 1.6 megabytes file size download. The download is in form of a installable setup program using which you can install Free Alarm Clock on your Windows system. It supports all versions of Windows including Windows 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, 2008 and 7. After the installation, you can run the Alarm Clock from its Start Menu shortcut.
The main window shows a clean and simple interface where you can add, edit or remove alarm events. Just click on the add button to add a new alarm. It supports unlimited number of alarms so that you are not restricted to the number of alarms you can have. Alarms that you set, will sound even if the computer goes to sleep (it wakes your PC up if it is in the sleep mode to play the alarm). The alarms can be coupled with a pop-up message which would appear along with the alarm sound – useful if you want to remind yourself of some task using an alarm.
There are a variety of alarm sounds available, including a very realistic phone, door bell chimes, birds song, sleigh-bells and more. If you do not like any of them, then you can also specify your own MP3 files to be set as alarm sounds. You can also set the alarm volume to suit your like under the Preferences section.
