    If it works, no need for an update.

    I'm just always leery of something that was last updated two years before my OS was released and has not been updated since the release of my OS, that's all. I just don't generally recommend folks take a program that old, even a simple one like this one seems to be. To each his own of course but when I am advising others I try to keep away from things like that.

    I agree when the program is messing with the OS but this is a pretty simple timer, there really is nothing to update.

    For anyone's info: Window 10 Pro with latest updates. Just tried the Moo0 Simple Timer and it works. :)

    An Update:
    Found a free one in the Microsoft Store, made for Windows 10. Installed and prefer it over the Moo0 one.
    It defaults to "shutdown" whereas you have to select that option from a drop-down menu in the Moo0.
    Has some nice visual effects and the developer is working on an updated version, with more functionality.

    Shutdown Timer Classic:

    Exactly.

    Forgive me but why would a batch file be needed to do something that can be accomplished jut by using Task Scheduler that is already built into the computer?
    Batch scripts were for 1980. This is 2020. So use power shell for scripting. Or use bash if you have WSL.
    But task scheduler is still better for scheduling jobs. It's more versatile and requires no maintenance.
