  • Music Controller –

In this mode you can control any player on your computer. You can see a music player like layout with buttons like “play / pause”, “next”, “prev”, “mute” and volume keys. This is very helpful if your away from your PC or laptop other some work and the music is playing.

  • TouchPad (Mouse) –

This mode has keys like “Up”, “Down”, “Left”, “Right”, “Esc” and “Enter”. These can be used for controls in a games, but still does not work with all games as limited key and no customization.
