Have the problem to know how to make your Smart Keyboard more yours?
Here we will tell you how to customize your function key settings for your daily usage.
First please make sure you purchased the correct Genius Smart Keyboard (or combo)
Here is the model list which is capable of using Smart Genius( An editable software for your function keys)
Then you need to download and install Smart Genius, after installed and restarted your computer, you can launch the app and start to edit your function key.
We skipped the introduction of Smart Genius' basic function and jump to the setup of your function keys. After your Smart Keyboard is detected, it will show the template functions for your function keys in all applications, you can adapt the sample usage or you could create your own profile for all applications. Here we will focus on creating a new profile for your all applications. So please move to the icon of "+" and click it to select "Create from Start"
Press "OK" you will see the screen of following, select "Profile for All Application" and then input the profile name, as this profile is for all applications, it means besides the application you already defined the profile, those undefined applications will use this profile as the default setting.
When you press"OK" it will ask you if you want to activate this profile, please press ok and then this new profile will be the main profile for your Smart Keyboard and it will show the new empty 12 function keys for further edition.
Here we based on the three sections to setup function keys, the first four function keys could be applied to the daily work; the second section could be information center, the third section could be defined as you leisure entertainments. you can also base on your needs to modify and setup. Start from the F1 Key, you could set it is a short to call out the smart key bar, so you can press F1 and see the steps on the following picture, then your F1 key is set. you can try to click F1 and your screen will show the smart key bar instantly. Click F1 again, the smart key bar will hide, for you to easily process your tasks.

Followed we will setup the F2~F4, here are 5 types of function setup, we can select the app launch for example the often used but will not place on the window short cut or on your desktop, such like the caculator or sinpping tool or sound recorder or displayswich etc....or you can also set your frequently used app like outlook or word, excel, or the "WEB" for your office webmail or ERP login page(please paste the url and name it, see followed picture)...., it is up to your habbit and how you think your Smart Keys should be.
Let's take a look at the following setting and key bar which is very convenient for me and my colleague.
As the previous setting, you can keep setup the rest function keys as you like, as I mentioned we divide into 3 sections for a better usage, so at the second section I setup the news and the live channel of Youtube or TV live-streams for a quick and in-time news updated, you can see the following Smart Key Bar for your reference. You cannot only setup the main page of the news, it is also able to direct setup the category or the channel you like to see.Such as BBC new for technology(http://www.bbc.com/news/technology) or the CCTV CH2 for finance (http://tv.cctv.com/live/cctv2/) Feel free to setup each function key for the most convenient way.
As to the third section, you could also set up the media function for an easy execution of your music playlist, the drama channel you most love to see, or the blog that interested you.
See the following sample for your reference.
We demo a little bit how you can setup your profile for all applications, sincerely hope this article could help you to discover and make your Smart Keyboard more useful.
Feel free to share with us if you have more smart profile setting.
