After downloading and then installing the driver and software suite, it opens up to show this. The Home tab offers a view of the M50 with its features listed to the right of it. Along the bottom, this tab does offer which software and firmware versions are in control of your mouse.





In the main settings, things get more involved. Here you pick one of five profiles to use, and start off by change the DPI level, with X and Y axis controls if desired. You can also adjust the sensitivity, and Widows pointer speed, adding enhanced precision if you wish. To the right are smaller boxes, where one adjusts the scroll speed and double click speed.




In the button settings menu, you can remap the mouse for various functions, or reverse from right to left handed. You can select from the four DPI settings rather than using the slider, you can also adjust the polling rate, and the M50 is also Macro capable.




Just to give you some idea of the remapping features, we clicked on the right tilt wheel function, and the drop-down menu opens. Anything you need can be found in here, to allow you to maximize the potential of the nine buttons over five profiles.




Clicking on the Macro Manager tab opens yet another window. Here you can create the macro and name it, and that will show in the left column. Once you click record, enter commands, and they will show in the center. You stop recording the same way it starts, and you can select to use delays in the commands, and add in loops if desired.




The last bit offered in the software is the light settings. Here you can allow the lighting to be on or off at the left, by checking a box. When the LEDs are on, the scroll wheel, logo, and bottom strip all pulse. You are given the option to change the speed of the lighting, but there is no control to leave them on all together. Support and Updates, as well as the "?" at the top, both take you to DAS Keyboard, where you can find an FAQ to direct you to anything you need to know.
