Firstly, the software setup for the Stream Deck doesn't change at all from variant to variant. The only difference between the models is the number of keys that can be customized. With that being said, the software setup is really quite simple, and due to simplicity, it feels like even the most inexperienced user can use it.
Here, we have the opening screen of the Stream Deck software, and this is where users will be able to choose a button they want to customize on their Elgato Stream Deck.
In the above screenshot, we can see programs and their menus on the right-hand side. Each of the sub-menus has a list of features that can be simply dragged over to a button and bound.
If the stock menus aren't, enough users can download more from this section.
In the preferences section, we have General, Accounts, and Profiles.
Twitch, Mixer, Twitter, Streamlabs, and YouTube accounts can also be linked by signing in.
Users can also add profiles in the Stream Deck, as seen in the above image I have inputted some example profiles that could be used for general purposes.
Here I've filled the entire Stream Deck with bound keys. The purple buttons are Twitch keys, and the next five (besides the welcome button) are for OBS. The last two are for web browsers and Microsoft Word.
If you look at the top-right hand corner of the Twitch chat button at the bottom of the image, you will notice a small arrow. Clicking this opens up the option for the button's image to be changed. Users can do this with Elgato's own button icon creator or just simply uploading their own images.
The link for the above website button is located in the 'System' sub-menu. We can also see 'URL' and 'Title'. In the URL field, users can fill out whatever website directory they want, and the title section is for the title of the button. An example would be. URL = www.Facebook.com Title = Facebook
I have provided an example of what a custom website button looks like above. The URL is filled with the desired website, and no title has been used due there being a logo on the image. Images automatically resize to the LCD screen which has a resolution of 72x72.
