SetPoint Software

Logitech's SetPoint software is one of my favorite, as it is very easy to install, understand and use. SetPoint is used for all of Logitech's products, so if you have used any of their gear in the past, odds are you are already familiar with the software.

Installation took only a few minutes and required a reboot. Afterwords, the Logitech SetPoint software icon was added to the task bar and everything was fully functional.



The first screen allows you to remap the Calculator Hot Key to any of the several preset functions or even create your own by creating a keystroke macro. I personally like the Calculator function so I left mine as that.

The Function menu is next and gives you the same remap options for nine of the function buttons. Programs such as E-Mail and Messenger allow you to select the specific program you want to open (Outlook Express, Windows Live Mail, etc.).

Battery information is next. As mentioned earlier, the diNovo for Notebooks uses four AAA batteries which are in good standing as you can see here. According to Logitech, you can expect up to three years of battery life, which is derived from an estimated 2,000,000 keystrokes per year in a business/office environment.

The final menu allows you to disable keys that you accidentally press or never use. Options here include Caps Lock, Windows Start key, Scroll Lock, Num Lock and the Insert key. The only key I ever use of the bunch is the Windows key, so it only makes sense to disable the others.

Continue ahead as we wrap things up with usage, findings and a conclusion...
