How do I customize basic settings for a Microsoft device?

When you install and open Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center, the supported Microsoft mice and keyboards connected to your computer are automatically detected and displayed. If you add a new supported device or disconnect an existing one, the device images displayed in the UI are automatically updated.

Note

The basic setting options available to you in the Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center UI are based on the specific device model you select.

Select a Microsoft device

  • Scroll through the displayed devices to locate the one you want to customize.
    If your device is not displayed, disconnect it, shutdown and then restart the Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center. If the device is still not displayed verify that the device is supported, or see Troubleshooting device setup for other suggestions.
