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”.

    USB Dekstop Smart Button

    Posted by Trevor on 26th Jun 2019

    Super little tool that does exactly what it says on the ads. I set this up as the trigger for the photobooth for our wedding with a vintage mac mini and it worked straight away. Only thing I had to make sure what that the LEDs matched the colouring that the (now) missus had chosen for the colour schemes. Very simple, quite flimsy feeling yet solid. My only issue was the lack of a weighted base on the model I ordered.

    Break too easily

    Posted by Alan on 30th Nov 2017

    Setting up is easy but are not very robust and break far too easily. Shame they are not more sturdy.

    Exactly what I needed

    Does exactly what I needed it to do. The quality is reasonable for the price, as well.

    Perfect

    Posted by AB on 22nd Feb 2017

    Does exactly what it's supposed to. I mapped it to "next" for skipping ahead in a large randomized playlist. 5/5 stars.

    Simply to setup and simple to use. Just make the button simulate whatever button presses you require. On top of that great customer service.
