While there is room for only one profile on the mouse at a time, which does not mean you cannot use the profiles section to make as many as you need and then swap them before launching the game or application.

In the Actions menu, you pick one of the buttons, and you can add other options such as Macros or remapping of them. As to the Macros, there is a full suite for them, where you can record mouse and keyboard functions, as well as edit them post-recording, as well as importing and exporting existing ones.

The options for lighting have over a dozen pre-set options, most of which can be customized, and those with motion can be speed adjusted. Colors and patterns can be made to change with specific profiles you may have loaded, and for those modes with movement, direction and color can also be addressed.

The M65 RGB Elite offers five levels of DPI settings, and what you see now are the default settings. Keep in mind; you also have the sniper button for a six-level of control. Each level can be adjusted by sliding the bar to anything from 100 to 18,000 DPI or can be entered into the box to a single DPI. Each DPI level can have a color set to it as well, this way you can tell visually, what DPI setting, is currently used by the mouse.

To get the most out of the M65 RGB Elite, we urge you to go ahead with the surface calibration.

The last section with options is found in the settings tab at the top of the menu. In here, you can change the polling rate, adjust the LED brightness, clear the onboard memory, change the color of the mouse displayed in the iCUE menus, and even has a one-stop shop to check for firmware updates.
