For example using the stop clock, if the classwork assignment lasts 45 minutes, you can simply use start parameters in the stop clock. This screenshot has been made on Windows 10, you can use this stop-watch parameter example easily on earlier versions of Microsoft's Windows operating systems, whether it's a Windows desktop, tablet, Surface Pro / Go, or even a server operating system.

1. Create a simple windows desktop shortcut to the stop clock on the desktop
2. Right-click on the properties of the desktop shortcut
3. and add the "countdown_min=45" parameter
4. Optionally, the newly created stop clock shortcut easy rename to "45 Min CD"
