Keeping things simple carried over to the software on the MX-Board 3.0 as well. Well for the most part at least. Finding the software to download was a pain, it wasn’t linked on the actual product page. I had to sort through a LONG list of keyboards on the support page to find it. Even then I almost downloaded the wrong language version. When installing the software I was surprised to find out that the software lets you select the language during the install as well so I don’t know why they even have different downloads for each language. My last complaint about the installation was when it required a reboot after finishing everything up.
Once installed though, I was really surprised to see that Cherry didn’t try to fancy up their software with the ugly skins that you see a lot of companies use. I like that they just use the basic program with the Cherry logo down in the corner. The software covers both Cherry’s mice and keyboards, but in this case we are only using the keyboard half. Basically what you get Is a list of the top row from F1 all the way through the volume controls. Here you can select each key can reprogram what it does. You can type in basic key sequences or record full macros if you want all in the software. They also let you do things like opening up programs webpages, and folders. All in all the software is extremely simple and frankly it is unneeded for most people but I am glad they kept it simple and did give you the option to be able to get in and tweak things.
