Programming media keys on Ducky Keyboards

Programming Media Keys on Ducky Keyboards

To use media keys on the Ducky Keyboards, you must record a macro to bind the media function to a hotkey combination, i.e. Fn plus some key.

Example

Important: In the instructions below, "Press X+Y+Z" means press and hold key X, press and hold key Y, press and hold key Z in that order, and then release all three.

As an example, to bind Fn+PgUp to the play/pause media function:

  • Press Fn+2 to activate profile #2. Profile #1 (factory default) is not programmable. Indicator lights will flash twice.

  • Press and hold Fn+Ctrl for 3 seconds to start recording a macro. Indicator lights will flash slowly.

  • Press Fn+PgUp to define the Fn+PgUp hotkey combo. Indicator lights will flash quickly.

    Notice: Release both the selected key and fn in order to enter binding mode

  • Press Fn+Win+A to bind the key combo to the mute function. Indicator lights will continue to flash quickly.

  • Press Fn+Ctrl to complete recording. Indicator lights will stop flashing.

  • The media key is now bound. Press Fn+PgUp to mute.

Resetting

To reset the current profile and clear all bindings, press and hold Win+Space for 3 seconds. The indicator lights will flash for a short while.
