Computer alarm

Using scheduled tasks on your Windows PC you could create things that emulate an alarm clock, such as playing some sort of media. It’s not impossible to do that way, but also not all that convenient. Start My Day is a free app that wants to help get your computer ready each morning without you having to fuss around with scheduled tasks.

The app is cleverly designed to let you pick the apps, websites, music, videos, and documents you want opened each day. You can add items to those various lists by browsing for them, or you can just drag and drop them into the window to have them added.

That’s all there really is to it. If you’re the type of person that does the same things over and over again each morning this could probably be pretty useful, otherwise it’s something you probably won’t use much.
