With CUE installed, we opened it up to find this window. Across the top, you can select profiles, actions, lighting, and settings, and it even offers the option to load other people's profiles. Down the left, there is a place where the profile name would be, and below shows changes. Above the image of the Strafe in the window, there are also options there for assignments, where we have defaults at the moment, and there are lighting and performance options to choose as well.
Since we don't want to assign hotkeys or macros at this time, we moved into the lower set of tabs lighting section. Below the keyboard is showing what LEDs are doing what currently, and to the left, we find four levels we can set the LED brightness to for the button to swap through. To the right, we see an effects list where you can do Visor, Rain, Pulse, Wave, Type Lighting, and A ripple mode instead of per keystroke modes. Of course, you can go to the advanced menu and set them individually as well.
In the performance window, we are offered options as to when the keyboard lock is active. You can check boxes at the bottom for Alt and Tab, Alt and F4, and disable the Windows key, which is set up by default.
In the actions menu in the upper section, we are delivered here, which is where Macros are handled. You have to click onto the "new..." at the top, and another window opens to obtain Macro controls. Otherwise, this is populated with a list of what you have installed.
In lighting, again clicking on new, another window will open allowing a certain key to be programmed with intensity that can change over time, or can be put into a gradient, ripple, or wave mode.
In the settings tab, you have all of your information right at a click away. Whether it is online support, the manual, the forum, or the FAQ section, all can be had on the left side with just one click. The right side offers links to technical support and forums and even offers your system information if you want to create a report to send in.
