Under the Profiles tab, where you can set up whole profiles for games or productivity, we start with the assignments tab. It is here, that by right clicking on any key on the image to the right, in which you can start the programming process by creating actions, setting mode switching capability, or setting up profile selections. Anything you make here will show in the list to the left, and if you have the M65 Pro and already made actions, they can be imported to this device as well.
Lighting can get pretty intense. We see the image shows visually which mode you have chosen, and here we selected the Rainbow Wave in use. There are ten other modes to select from, as well as being able to set each and every switch to a different color than the next. With 16.8 million color choices, this is very easy to do.
When it comes to the performance tab, there are a few things near the bottom that can be addressed here. You can disable the Alt-Tab combo, same for Alt-F4, you can disable with Windows key, and lastly you can also block the Shift-Tab command as well.
Rather than right-clicking on a specific key, you can come to this Actions menu and program things you will want to use while typing on this keyboard. Everything from Macros to text, shortcuts, even mouse and multimedia control can be addressed here. Simply click on the New button at the top, select the type of action you want to use and follow the prompts to make a full list of Actions to adds to keys later.
The Lighting tab allows you to take things even further with per-key illumination. Here you can address various effects that the key will present when used for an Action. You can adjust the length of time the color effect happens, its intensity, every aspect of what is visually seen at that time of use.
The Settings tab offers the Device tab to see what is connected, which firmware is used, and what software is in play. The Program tab we showed has a ton of ability to offer. Here you can select language; you can update the keyboard, and pick from a full assortment of other features. As for the support tab, it offers one-click buttons to forums, the FAQ section, and support.
