What is on-the-fly macro recording?

On-the-fly macro recording allows users to record lengthy macros in the game without having to access driver menus or other software. For example, hitting the "Macro Record" key then inputting a sequence of multiple spells in World of Warcraft saves this action to the specified key. The same sequence of spells can then be executed automatically with the actuation of that one button.

Troubleshooting FAQs

My Razer peripheral will not work properly when used with a KVM switch. How can I fix this?

We recommend plugging your Razer product directly into your system. KVM switches are known to cause interruptions in communications between devices and computers. If your Razer product works when plugged directly into the computer, then it is operating correctly and the issue is most likely due to the KVM switch.

How do I clean my Razer Keyboard?

The overall finish can be cleaned with wipes generally used for cleaning your computer monitor or sunglasses. Ensure that the surface is free of large dust particles or debris before wiping the surface with any product. Wiping debris into the surface can lead to minor scratches on the surface of the unit.

If you wish to clean under the keycaps, Razer suggests holding the unit upside down and using compressed air from a can. We do not recommend removing the keycaps from your mechanical switches.

We suggest unplugging the device from your computer before cleaning.

Note: Under no circumstances should you ever submerge the keyboard in any type of liquid. Submerging the keyboard in any liquid will void the warranty on your keyboard.

Can I replace the keycaps on the Razer BlackWidow Lite?

Can I program the "FN" key on my Razer BlackWidow Lite keyboard?

Does the Razer BlackWidow Lite feature a USB pass-through and a 3.5mm audio jack?

What are the O-Rings that come with the Razer BlackWidow Lite for?

If you wish to dampen the sound of your keypresses even further, you can choose to install the enclosed O-rings under each key. Simply remove the keycap by using the included keycap puller and slide the O-ring to the bottom of the keycap. Then reinstall the keycap for a quieter sounding keystroke. This will also shorten the length of the key travel and can help with typing fatigue.

Can I use a generic micro-USB cable to connect the Razer BlackWidow Lite to my computer?

It is recommended to use the cable that came with the BlackWidow Lite keyboard. However, a generic cable may work, provided it is able to transmit data.
