In this article, we’ll walk you through the complete process of unifying your mouse and keyboard set using Logitech’s Unifying software.
How does a Unifying Mouse or Keyboard Set work?
Keeping your computer and peripherals organized and working together is easier with a Unifying Mouse or Keyboard Set. You usually get a mouse and keyboard in these sets, but sometimes you’ll get a docking station for the keyboard so you can use it on your lap. They’re easy to set up and make your computer more efficient.
You can use one mouse and keyboard on your computer, laptop, or tablet with a unified mouse and keyboard set.
Choose the Unifying Set that best suits your needs out of the many types available. Depending on how often you use each device and what type of input devices you already have, the type of Unifying Set you should get depends on what you use the most. Some sets include a mouse and keyboard separately, while others include both in one unit.
Make sure you consider your needs and which device(s) you use most often in order to find the best Unifying Mouse or Keyboard Set. In order to make transporting easier, find a set that includes both a mouse and keyboard in one unit.
What made you decide to purchase a Unifying Mouse or Keyboard Set?
If you’re using a mouse and keyboard set that’s not unified, you might be missing out on some of the benefits that these peripherals offer. When working in Windows, you can improve your efficiency and comfort by unifying your mouse and keyboard set. It can also make it easier to move between tasks or programs. Here are some reasons you may want to unify your mouse and keyboard set:
The ability to work more efficiently in Windows
When you unify your mouse and keyboard set, you will likely be able to perform more tasks in less time when you use one peripheral instead of two. One of the main benefits of unifying your mouse and keyboard set is that it can help you work more efficiently in Windows. This is especially helpful if you’re used to using a mouse with multiple buttons and a keyboard with multiple keys. The unification of these devices lets you utilize only one input method for both tasks and programs.
- Increased level of comfort
If you’re comfortable using a single peripheral for both activities (mousing and typing), unifying your mouse and keyboard set can be very beneficial. Additionally, it can be more comfortable when working long hours or on extended projects because it reduces the amount of time spent switching between devices. It may even become more familiar and natural for you to use the same device more often.
The ability to move easily between tasks or programs
Switching between different tasks frequently is not a good idea

This technology allows you to use one peripheral across multiple devices, making it a great choice if you own a laptop and desktop PC. We’ll walk you through the process of connecting your Unifying device to your computer in this guide.
First, make sure that your Unifying device is properly initialized. You can do this by opening the Unifying software on your computer and following the instructions on the screen. Once you have initialized the software, a unique ID number will be provided to you that you can use to connect your device to other devices.
Remove the cover from the mouse or keyboard base before connecting your Unifying device to your computer. Plug the USB cable into one end of the cable and connect it to an available USB port on your computer (for mice) or a keyboard expansion port (for keyboards). In the end, plug the USB cable into either side of your Unifying device.
