Changing the keyboard color on your Razer device is one way to make it feel truly your own. With 16 million colors to choose from, you can use the lighting on your keyboard as a creative expression of your gaming or work style. You can even sync your keyboard’s color with other Razer devices or set a particular effect for specific games or moods.

Some models of the Razer Turret series keyboard also allow you to change the colors without using Synapse. The process is slightly different and requires a little more effort. You will need to press the Fn + Ctrl buttons with keys from 1 to 7 on the number row to change the keyboard’s color. This method can be quicker than opening the Razer Synapse software and selecting an option, but it does not offer as much customization.

In addition to the ability to change keyboard colors, Razer Synapse offers a wide range of effects for your keyboard’s LED lighting. These effects can range from static to reactive or spectrum cycling, and can be set up in various ways to create a visually captivating experience. You can also create your own custom lighting profiles, and change the LED settings of each key to control how each key light up and in what sequence.

The Razer Chroma Studio software allows you to control the LED lighting on your Razer device from a computer or mobile device. The software is available for Windows and Mac, and can be downloaded from the Razer website. Once installed, you can open the software and select your Razer device from the list of connected devices. From the device page, you can select the lighting options for your keyboard and choose a color to change its LEDs to. You can also create a keyboard shortcut to launch the software or select an effect from the Quick Effects section.
