FAQ

What color switch should I get?

If this is your first time experiencing mechanical switches, we recommend going with the MX Brown which is the most popular switch for gaming and typing.

Can I upgrade my keycaps?

Yes! The Edge uses standard Cherry MX keycaps so any 3rd party Cherry-compatible keycap should work. Note that due to the Edge’s compact split layout there are some unique keys: Right Ctrl and Right Shift keys are 1.75x wide (substitute a Caps Lock key) and the space bars are 3.5x wide (We are not aware of any 3rd party 3.5x space bars).

How do I remove the keycaps?

You can purchase a keycap removal tool from us or on Amazon, or just use a folded paperclip.

How do I access the SmartSet App?

Open the v-Drive on a Windows computer (SmartSet + F8). Then locate the “FS Edge” removable drive in File Explorer and double-click the App. When you are finished, close the App and then close the v-Drive (SmartSet + F8) to implement your changes.

What is NKRO?

NKRO allows the Edge to register all simulateneous key presses so you never miss a key.

How do I increase the speed of my macros?

Activate Macro Speed Mode (SmartSet + F9) and then select 1-9 for the speed, or 0 to disable macros.

Where is the numeric keypad?

The Freestyle Edge was specifically designed as a “tenkeyless” keyboard to bring your mouse in closer to your body. If you require a numeric 10-key, you can program one into the embedded layer using the SmartSet App. Open the v-Drive (SmartSet + F8), launch the SmartSet App, click the Special Actions button in the Remap Section, then select “Numeric Keypad”. You can choose from the right or left side of the keyboard. Access the keypad by using the Fn key to enter the “embedded” layer.

What’s the best configuration for typing and gaming?

Whether your typing or gaming, you want your hands at shoulder width and wrists at a neutral angle.

Is there a different way to access the embedded Fn layer?

If you would prefer to temporarily “shift” on the embedded layer use the SmartSet App or Direct Programming to assign the “Fn Shift” special action to any key on the keyboard.

Can I disable backlighting?

Yes, just tap the LED key in the lower right corner of the Game Bank. To permanently disable backlighting enter Backlight Mode (SmartSet + LED Key) and tap “0” to disable all the full-size LEDs, or tap “P” for Pitch Black mode to disable all of the static indicator LEDs as well.

Can I disable onboard programming shortcuts?

Yes, use the Program Lock command (SmartSet + Shift + L) to temporarily disable the 4 programming keys. Use the same shortcut to re-enable onboard programming.

How do I access the multimedia controls?

Tap the Fn key to toggle on the embedded function layer. The multimedia keys are then accessed from F1-F6 when the Fn layer is active.

Does the Edge perform mouse clicks?

Yes, the Edge can perform both single and double mouse clicks via the Special Actions menu in the SmartSet App or Direct Programming.

Can I run the SmartSet App on a Linux machine?

Yes, many Linux users have reported successfullly using WineHQ to run the Windows version of the App. Note: WineHQ and other such programs are 3rd party applications which have not been tested by Kinesis and are not supported. Use at your own risk.

Does the Edge work with non-US keyboard drivers?

Basic keyboard usage and onboard programming should work with non-US keyboard drivers, but the SmartSet App requires that you are using the standard US keyboard driver.
