The Microsoft TIMEOUT command provides an on-screen countdown timer;
Code:
e:\utils>timeout /t 5

Waiting for 0 seconds, press a key to continue ...

Would like to see an optional on-screen countdown timer for the PAUSE command.

I think I misunderstood the OP post--there actually could be FOUR options.

1) It waits 5 seconds for a press and then continues.

2) It waits for a press and displays a countdown, then continues.

3) It waits 5 seconds before you can press.

4) It waits 5 seconds with a countdown before you can press.
