SetPoint™ Software. Your mouse gets personal.
A mouse makeover
Your mouse gets the job done. It clicks. It scrolls. It gets you where you want to go. It might even do some fancy things—like zoom or flip documents.
If you have SetPoint, open it by clicking on the SetPoint icon (it’s the tiny mouse and keyboard in your tray, if you’re running Windows®). Or, you can select Logitech>Mouse and Keyboard>Mouse and Keyboard Settings from the Windows Start menu
Your buttons, your way
Got a button you just don’t use? You can change its function to suit your needs. Maybe your mouse has a zoom button, but you’d prefer to use it for document flipping. Here’s all you need to do:
With some mice, like the MX™ Revolution and VX™ Revolution, you can even assign different functions to a button for different programs.
Your cursor is under your control with SetPoint. To move the way you want to, you can change the pointer speed and acceleration, turn on pointer trails, and enable Smart Move to automatically move the pointer to the default button in dialog boxes. In some cases, it also lets you adjust the scrolling speed.
Get ready for game time
Gamers, we’ve got a little something for you in there, too. You can enable game detection and choose game mode settings that give you the competitive edge.
Is the end near for your batteries? It’s easy to find out—you just click the Mouse Batteries tab to see how they’re doing. With some mice, it will even let you know how much time they’ve got left.
Laser sensors: A controlling interest
Sensing the details
What does a mouse do? Fundamentally, it allows you to control your cursor. And the best measure of cursor control is the accuracy with which the mouse translates the movements you make with your hand.
Sensitive to your needs
Some people just need a mouse that works. Others need a mouse that can track on many surfaces. And gamers need a mouse that can give them game-changing precision at any hand speed.
There are two kinds of sensors: optical and laser.
Glass. The final frontier.
Logitech mice that are built with Logitech® Darkfield Laser Tracking™ use the smallest possible details to create a micro-road map of the surface. That means these mice can track on glass.*
If you’re an expert gamer, pixel-perfect tracking can mean the difference between victory and defeat. Our mice with gaming-grade laser sensors can track at speeds all the way up to 5700 dpi. So when the game is on the line, you’ll get maximum precision, blinding speed, and ultra-smooth tracking.
We rigorously test all of our laser mice on a wide variety of surfaces to make sure your mouse is free of tracking flaws.
