Firstly, the software setup for the stream deck doesn't change at all from variant to variant. This means it doesn't matter what option you buy. The software setup will all be the same. The only difference is the number of keys on the deck.
Above is the opening screen of the stream deck software. Here's is where users will be able to choose a button to customize on their stream deck.
In the above image, we can see programs and their corresponding menus on the right-hand side. Each of the menus contains plugins that can be dragged over to the button and bound to it.
Perhaps the stock menus in the software don't quite fit the users' requirements. More can be downloaded here.
This is the preferences section, where General, Accounts, and Profiles are located.
The software offers users the ability to be able to sign-in to the following accounts: Twitch, YouTube, Mixer, Streamlabs, and Twitter.
The software also offers users the ability to save and load profiles. Above I have inserted some casual profiles that might be used for general purposes.
In this image, I give an example of what the stream deck looks like if it's filled with bound keys. The purple buttons are Twitch keys, and the next five are for OBS. The last two are for web browsers and Microsoft Word.
Focusing in on the Twitch chat button at the bottom of the image, you will notice a small arrow. Clicking this arrow opens up the option for the button's icon image to be changed. Users can do this with Elgato's own button icon creator, or just simply uploading their own images.
Users can add website link buttons to their stream deck. This bind is located in the 'System' sub-menu. In the URL field, users add the desired website directory, and the title section is for the title of the button. An example would be. URL = www.Facebook.com Title = Facebook
Here I've have provided an example of what a custom website button looks like. The URL is filled with the desired website, and no title has been used because of there being a logo on the image. It should be noted that images automatically resize to the LCD screen, which has a resolution of 72x72.
