Remapping mouse

Remapping a standard mouse

If you have a standard mouse without additional buttons, follow these steps to remap the mouse:

  1. Download and install reWASD
  2. Launch reWASD and make sure that your mouse is connected to the PC
  3. Choose the mouse (or a group of devices that includes mouse) you want to remap in the Device list
  4. Create a new profile by clicking the Plus sign at the bottom of the Profile list: set the name of a game, add a background picture if needed, and click Add. The config is created automatically
  5. Pick Mouse in the menu on the top of reWASD window
  6. Add some mappings: choose the key you want to remap, and then add a mapping to it. Repeat until you add all the desired mappings
  7. Once you’re done, press Save if you want to keep the changes, or press Apply if you want to try the config right away. When you press Apply the config is saved automatically
  8. Once the config becomes active, you will see Remap is ON in the bottom left corner. To eliminate the active config, press Remap is ON button, and you will see the Remap is OFF indicator. Press it once again to switch remap back ON.

Remapping a mouse with programmable buttons

If you have a gaming mouse with additional programmable buttons, it may be reported to reWASD as an unknown device.

Note, that some devices (for example, Logitech G502 or G300S) have On-Board Memory option in the native software, which is set by default. That is the option you need to make your mouse cooperate with reWASD properly.

To initialize the mouse and add the mappings to it, you need to do the following:

  1. Download, install reWASD, and also install the native software for your particular mouse (I have an example with Bloody A6 mouse and Bloody6 software)
  2. Now open the button mapping section in the native software of your mouse. Since reWASD can map Left mouse button, Right mouse button, Middle mouse button, X1 and X2 (two buttons that your mouse usually has at the side), you need to assign some keyboard keys to all other mouse buttons. I will map 1 to Z, N to X and 3 to C, the keys that you choose to map are up to you:

  3. Launch reWASD and make sure that your mouse is connected to the PC

  4. Check the lower left corner, find the icon with a question mark and click on it. You will see the following window:

  5. Pick the relevant option, and press Submit. Now you can add mappings to it

  6. Choose the mouse (or a group of devices that includes mouse) you want to remap in the Device list

  7. Create a new profile by clicking the Plus sign at the bottom of the Profile list: set the name of a game, add a background picture if needed, and click Add. The config is created automatically

  8. Pick Mouse in the menu on the top of reWASD window

  9. Add some mappings: choose the key you want to remap, and then add a mapping to it. Repeat until you add all the desired mappings
  10. To map the keys that you assigned in the naive software, you need to click the Keypad icon on the right part of reWASD window:
  11. You will see the table, now press Add to create the new mapping. Don't forget to Unmap the additional buttons too, to prevent unwanted actions. I will choose Z, X, and C at the left part and assign some combos to them in the right part:

  12. Once you’re done, press Save if you want to keep the changes, or press Apply if you want to try the config right away. When you press Apply the config is saved automatically

  13. Once the config becomes active, you will see Remap is ON in the bottom left corner. To eliminate the active config, press Remap is ON button, and you will see the Remap is OFF indicator. Press it once again to switch remap back ON.
