You can set macros to reflect the majority of keyboard keys except for the Windows keys and enhanced function keys. Mouse button presses are not programmable to macros.
How do I change the language of Configurator?
There is no option in the Customizer because the language used is based on the driver version installed on the computer. There is no selection enabled in the Customizer. To correct the issue, uninstall the software and download the appropriate driver from our website.
How does Razer measure the polling rate (ultrapolling) and response rates of their keyboards and mice?
Razer uses digital scopes and USB analyzers connected directly to the motherboard to obtain real and accurate measurements of polling rates.
I cannot get the On The Fly sensitivity function to work on my Razer mouse. How do I set it?
If a button has been assigned to "On-The-Fly sensitivity," pressing and holding the assigned button down while moving the scroll wheel up or down will produce a bar on the lower right hand corner of your screen allowing you to adjust your sensitivity settings.
My mouse cursor is not moving. How can I fix this?
Try cleaning the sensor using a Q-Tip lightly coated with rubbing alcohol. Let the sensor dry for 5 minutes and try the mouse again.
For mice with surface calibration:
If it still does not work, your sensor may have been improperly calibrated when setting up surface calibration. With the mouse plugged in and flat on your mouse mat, hold down the left click, right click, and mouse wheel button for 7 seconds to reset the surface calibration. If this does not work, contact our Support team.
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 computer. 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.
