MagSpeed adaptive scroll-wheel with SmartShift

logitech Mouse  (4)

The speed-adaptive scroll wheel shifts between two scrolling modes automatically. As you scroll faster, it will automatically shift from line-by-line scrolling to free-spinning.

  • Line-by-line (ratchet) mode — ideal for precise navigation of items and lists.
  • Hyper-fast (free-spin) mode — near-frictionless spinning, letting you fly through long documents and web pages.

Switch modes manually

You can also manually switch between modes by pressing the mode shift button.

logitech Mouse  (6)

By default, mode shift is assigned to the button on top of the mouse. In Logitech Options software, you can decide to disable SmartShift if you prefer to stay in one scrolling mode and always shift manually.

To move back and forward: 

  • Press the back or forward button to navigate web or document pages, depending on the location of the mouse pointer.

App-Specific Settings

Your mouse buttons can be assigned to perform different functions for different applications. For instance, you can assign the side buttons to control volume in Spotify, copy/paste in Microsoft Excel, or undo/redo in Adobe Photoshop.
When you install Logitech options, you can install predefined app-specific settings that will adapt the mouse button behavior to the selected applications.

Here are the app-specific settings we have created for you:

Adjust the feel of the scroll wheel

When you scroll in Ratchet mode, you can adjust the feel of your scroll wheel on the “Point & Scroll” tab in Logitech Options.

  • A higher force will make every ratchet very firm and precise.logitech Mouse  (12)

Assign gestures to the top button
