Keycounter is a small free utility that keeps track of every single key press you make every minute and whether the mouse has moved. At the end of the day it will then display a graph of your work, along with clear evidence of the period when you went skulking off to the coffee machine for an hour at around 4pm. So waddya know, the ultimate geek watchdog.
Keycounter provides a way of keeping track of when you’ve been active on your PC during the day. It does pretty much what it says – counts the number of keystrokes you make every minute and records that information, along with whether the mouse has moved. Keycounter can then be used to browse the files, and display a graph of when you were at your most busy.
