This deluxe version USB Smart Button features a polished stainless steel base and will look stylish on any desk, whether in the workplace or at home. This USB Button weighs nearly twice as much as the standard version, so is more sturdy when placed on a desk or table.

User configurable desktop push button with hundreds of uses, limited only by your imagination.

When pressed, button "types" a stored sequence of keystrokes to the PC. Keys can include all alpha, multimedia, power, web browser commands.

In the USBButton utility, two sequences of keys can be configured, primary and secondary. Each is 24 keys long. Each key location in the table is configured using a drop-down menu which contains all available functions. Keys are sent left to right, row by row.

When the keys are sent, each of the rows is “held” pressed down until the entire row has been sent. This means you can program multi-key functions such as ctrl-alt-del

The “Action” buttons specify one of three modes as follows:
Alternate: First press sends primary sequence, second press sends secondary sequence.
Extended: Each press sends primary followed by secondary sequences
Both: A normal press sends the primary sequence, a long press sends the secondary sequence

The LED sliders set the button color when either pressed or released, selected by the click buttons.

“Program” sends the configuration to the USBButton.

How to get Upper Case characters:
To get upper case, insert a “shift” key into one of the locations, in the normal way. All subsequent keys will be shifted until the end of the 6-key row, after which the shift is cancelled.

Example Configuration:
The configuration below causes the browser to open and go to the usbbutton.com website.

The “open browser” is followed by a 3 second wait while the browser opens, then an ALT-D which clears the address bar. Then the website URL is typed in, followed by “enter”.

    Well Built and Functional

    Posted by Paul Furness on 3rd Oct 2017

    This button does exactly what is claimed, and does it well.
    The metal base is excellent and the whole thing very solidly constructed and no reliability problems with the button itself yet (I've only had it a couple of days so time will tell).
    The software to program the button is not particularly pretty or smooth but it does program the button perfectly. The button then retains the program so you can plug it in to any other computer and it will work fine.
    The software will only run on windows but the button works perfectly (once programmed) on macs as well.
    One missing feature would be to have the colour of the button change on alternate presses - press once and it goes green, say, then press again and it goes back to red. Otherwise, pretty near perfect.
