Instructions

  1. 1

    Install the Saitek profile editor program on your computer. You can do this using the disc that came in the box with your Cyborg keyboard.

  2. 2

    Open the profile editor. On the screen you will see a list of keys that correspond to the programmable keys on your Cyborg. With some models of the Cyborg, pressing a key on the keyboard will select the corresponding key in the profile editor.

  3. 3

    Click on the key you want to program in the profile editor window. Programming mode will begin. Enter the key or keys that you want to program by pressing them on the keyboard. When you are finished, click the green check mark. Click on the next button that you want to program and repeat the process, clicking the green check mark each time. When all 12 buttons are programmed the way you like, click on the blue target button near the top of the window to save the changes to your profile.

  4. 4

    Click on the key you want to program to run a specific program in the profile editor. You will have to type in a string of keys that will open the command prompt in Windows and run the program. After you click on the key, enter the "Windows" key (located at the bottom of your keyboard between "Alt" and "Ctrl") on your keyboard, followed by the "R" key. Next, type in the program you want to run. For example, if you want Firefox, type in "firefox.exe" and then the "Enter" key. Save the entry using the green check mark. Exit using the blue target button at the top of the window and then test your keyboard.
