Editors' reviewThis free application impressively allows you to schedule programs to run and close and hands out quick pop-up reminders. System Scheduler lets you schedule specific times to open programs and even send keystrokes to be entered. You can set events to run as often as every minute or as sporadically as once a year. Schedule the program's window watcher to close, minimize, or automatically send key presses to any opened window by simply entering the title that will appear in the title bar of your browser or file and the time you want the action to occur. We also like that it includes pop-up reminders with optional WAV audio files for important events and you can hit snooze for the reminder to reappear in so many user-specified minutes. For automatic program launching and quick reminders, System Scheduler is an excellent choice and best of all--it's free.
Three main functions: 1) Pop-up reminders. 2) Task/Program Launcher. 3) Window Watcher (look for particular window by title and SEND KEYPRESSES to that window (useful for re-establishing broken Internet connections). Can be set to run once only or every minute, hour, day, week, month, or year. Launch other programs at scheduled times and SEND KEYPRESSES to those programs. Tray icon for easy admin, help files, and e-mail support available.
