Logitech G HUB Software
After finding, downloading, and installing G HUB Software, we were greeted with this window. At the top, we see the logo at the top-left, that our active profile is "desktop," and clicking it allows for entry to game auto-detection, as well as shortcuts to other parts of the menu system. In the middle is an image of the PRO X keyboard, which, when clicked on, takes you deeper into the software suite. At the bottom, there are links of videos that may pertain to you, and the little man icon is where you can go to create an account, but G HUB works without one.
Clicking the keyboard image has taken us here, and again, you can address the profile at the top. Opened for us is the lighting menu that offers presets shown in the dropdown box. Along with that, you can choose colors for certain presets, and if they are an effect with motion, you can also adjust the speed. Under the image of the keyboard is the Sync Lighting Option, where all Logitech devices will share the setting.
In freestyle mode, your imagination is the limit. Keys can be addressed per-key, or in groups in the quick color menu. You can add and name a profile, then go nuts with however you want it to look. To use groups of keys, you must turn off the 92 Keys switch at the left. Otherwise, all changes are global across the entire keyboard, and we do now see that the logo color can also be changed from Logitech blue.
If animations are your thing, this menu gives you options like lightning, ocean wave, red white and blue, verticool, and again, you can add profiles and name them. For motion options, you can pick cycle, reverse cycle, bounce, and random. Since these are all motion-based effects, you also get the slider to adjust the speed if it.
Then it comes to programming the F-keys, we can honestly think of nobody else that offers this sort of an options list. Each of the commands, keys, actions, Macros, and Systems tabs at the top offer a full menu of possible options. You need to hunt out the command in the list or search at the top, and then said function could be applied. At the bottom is a switch, which takes the function key and swaps it for the shift key for usage.
The Macro menu is intuitive and easy to use. We passed the steps where we named the Macro and selected the way it is to be used, IE, one-click, spam, spam till the release of the key, things like that. Once down, you can record keystrokes, add text and emojis, take predefined actions, launch applications, deal with system controls, and add delays into the Macros to allow time for them to work correctly. Once done, be sure to tick the save box. Once saved, other parts of the menu will see it for key assignments.
The gamer mode button, or the game lockout, is what the last icon on the left covers. When used, by default, the Windows key, the Function key, and the Menu key are blocked. If you would like to disable more, tick the "keys disabled by you" box, and select which ones, turning them red, that you do not want functioning during gameplay.
The last section we found was after ticking on the gear icon that has been present on all of the images. Doing so allows you to control the lighting through software, and will enable you to reset the effect back to stock. Enabling F-key inversion is where you change how the multimedia keys and the dual-layer of the functionality of the F-keys are triggered.
