Among its many features, the Logitech Revolution MX 5500 keyboard has an LED display at the top that can show a variety of items on your computer, including the time and date. Since the MX 5500 uses the Adjust Time/Date function on your PC's clock to set the keyboard's LED (light-emitting diode) display, you must manually change the time and day on your computer to edit the display.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Connect the keyboard to the computer, and turn on the computer.

  2. 2

    Wait until the keyboard's LED display turns on so that you can see the date and time.

  3. 3

    Click on the time and date that appear in the lower right-hand corner of your PC screen. A window will pop open.

  4. 4

    Click "Change date and time settings" (or a variation of that wording) at the bottom of that window. A second window will open.

  5. 5

    Click "Change date and time," and a third window will open, showing a monthly calendar and digital clock.

  6. 6

    Use the left and right arrows at the top of the calendar to change the month and the highlighted "day" box to change the day.

  7. 7

    Click on the section of the clock you want to change (hours, minutes, seconds or AM-PM) and use the up and down arrows to change the time. Or type in the new time for each section of the clock.

  8. 8

    Click "OK" to accept the new time on your computer. The next time your keyboard updates, it will sync to the new time you input into your PC, editing the LED display.
