Everyone, whether they are an avid runner or not, may find the need to time themselves. Free Stopwatch empowers you in whatever endeavor you see the need to time. As straightforward as it can be, the big start button starts the clock ticking. Press "lap" to capture the time without stopping the timer - each lap is labeled in the bottom half of the screen, and any lap can also be deleted. Press stop when you are finished, and reset if you wish to start afresh. The function keys can also be used - F2 to start, F4 for the laps, F3 to stop, and F5 to reset.

When you have completed your timings, you can copy the results to your clipboard to paste them elsewhere, save them as a text document, or print them using Ctrl-p through your web browser (printing is not available on any menu, unfortunately for those who do not normally think of using hotkeys).

Free Stopwatch now comes in more languages and has the feature of turning on a metronome which ticks every second. This program performs its purpose flawlessly, so that you can have an accurate stopwatch on your computer.
