C-C C-x ; can start count down timer. But I want to start the timer whenever I open any org file. I want to set it default for 10 minute. Kindly help


Have you tried adding the function to org-mode-hook?

If you haven't tried it yet, what I would recommend is to create a function my-org-mode-hook-function which evaluates (org-timer-set-timer 10). Then add to your .emacs file the expression (add-hook 'org-mode-hook 'my-org-mode-hook-function).

  • How do you create a hook.? Kindly explain – Vaibhav Jan 16 '18 at 9:41
  • You don't create any hook. org-mode-hook is a pre-existing emacs variable, meant to contain a list of functions to be evaluated when starting org-mode. – user1404316 Jan 16 '18 at 10:16
