Hi Lifehacker, I’ve been trying to find a countdown screensaver for my exams for a while now but I just cannot seem to find a good one. Have you seen any good/cool live countdown screensavers for Windows? Thanks, Tick-Tock

For a fuss-free solution, simply head to Google and type ‘set timer for X minutes’ into the search box. A countdown clock will appear at the top of the search results displaying the time you requested:
You can also make the timer full-screen by clicking the icon on the far right. Too easy!
Other decent timer applications worth checking out include Chrome’s Timer Tab extension, which alerts the user with a flashing pop-up notifier, Orzeszek Timer, which is a bare-bones countdown timer with an inbuilt alarm and Marinara Timer; a cooking app that works just as well for schooling. You can also find oodles of additional suggestions via our Timer and Clocks tags.
