Hey, it’s Nancy, and welcome to my channel.  Today, I am going to tell you the 3 things that drive me insane about the Logitech MX Keys Keyboard.  Be sure to stay till the end, as I give you my Top complaint with this keyboard!  If you like the video, please share the video.  I truly appreciate all support you show to my channel.

Now without further ado, let us get on with the video.

I am going to start with my number three complaint and work up to my number one complaint with this keyboard.


No Macro Functionality

For a keyboard that’s goal is to help you be more productive, it is lacking in the macro functionality department.  It is not lacking; it just does not let you do macros at all.  For most users, this might not be an issue but there are times when I am working on a project when macros would come in handy.

Keyboard Compatibility

Who in the right mind builds a keyboard that is meant to be used across platforms that does not as well outside of Windows and macOS.  For instance, the media buttons do not work on Linux.  Also, the calendar key does not work on mobile devices running Android, iOS, or iPadOS. 

Logitech, you need to listen.  When you market something that is across platform capabilities it needs to function well on every platform, not just a few!  Augh.

Now, I purposely bought this keyboard so I could use it on my iPad, Mac, and Windows machines.  However, I did not use this keyboard for about six months as I had issues getting it to connect to any operating system.  I have a video on this issue that I will put a link to in the description.  Recently, I pulled it back out of storage and am using it on my Windows machine.  I wanted to give this keyboard another chance.  However, it will only be used on my Windows machine until I can trust it again.

Logitech Software

Now on to my last complaint.  I HATE the LOGITECH SOFTWARE!!!!!

It just gets on my nerves that I cannot check the battery level using the software.  Yes, it does tell you that the battery level is okay, but I prefer the indicator that is available on the Logitech G HUB software where it displays it as a percentage.  That is meaningful to me.  Not this where it says, “Battery Level Is Good”.  I can’t tell you the number of times I have started to write a blog article only to find out that I need to charge the keyboard.  In fact, I should not have to open Logitech’s software at all to find out the battery level.  They could have easily put an indicator on the keyboard.

Logitech has multiple software packages available depending on the keyboard or mouse that you are using.  Since I am running the Logitech MX Keys Keyboard with the G503 mouse, I have two different programs to control them.  What Logitech, One program would not work for all devices.  Add to the fact that I recently upgraded the software and now they cannot find my keyboard just adds to my frustration.  In fact, I am so fed up with Logitech that I am actually looking at other keyboard options.  This is sad as I have been a Logitech supporter for over 30 years.

How well do you like Logitech’s software? Let me know in the comments below.


So, these have been my top 3 things that I hate about my Logitech MX Keys Keyboard.  Let me know your thoughts down below and until next week, as always please be safe.
