G HUB Software

G HUB is what Logitech uses to complement their peripherals now and is a sleeker, more refined look at software for Logitech devices. It shows the products in the center, and with the G613 all that is connected, we have just one product to choose from at this time. Across the bottom, you have links to lighting options, game profiles, and a box to drop you at the Logitech G website. As for the gear icon at the top, it opens the global menu where you can see software version and check for updates, change startup, profile, and desktop activities has a place for feedback and offers a tutorial for those wanting to watch.

Once you click on the keyboard in the last image, you are dropped into this menu. Working at the moment in the assignments section, we can see commands is underlined at this time. Any command you can think of, you can type into the search bar or scroll through the vast list offered on the left. To the right, while marked F-keys, the G-keys are what is being addressed in this menu.

If you want to use a single keystroke as one of the G-keys, the keys tab is where you want to go. Again, any key on a keyboard is found in this list, and actions are still confined to the G-keys.

The actions tab is for things like push to talk, activate a stream, can be used with multiple types of software, and again, are only able to be set to the G-keys.

Clicking the Macro tab opens a window where we have to name the Macro, in this instance, test. After that, another window pops up asking how the Macro is to be used, as in single click, repeat, and so on. Currently, those are grayed out but can be addressed when not in the record menu. From there, using the buttons at the bottom left, you have the full assortment of options and delays at your disposal to fine-tune and master Macro creation.

The System tab allows you to select from many different aspects of PC usage, and each section has a multitude of pre-set options to choose. The interesting bit we see is the G-Shift at the bottom, which alludes to dual layers, but we found no information explaining how it works.

The last bit of the software pertains to the Windows lockout key and what happens when it is pressed. In red is the default trio of keys that are disabled when the switch on the G613 is slid to the right. You can also select any or all of the keys on the keyboard to disable to fit your specific needs, and those will be highlighted gray when selected.
