Profile is the element that will gather your configurations (Configs) for a certain game. It corresponds the folder, while a Config corresponds the file that is stored in it.

To start creating the new layout, you need to Add a profile. Open the menu in the upper right corner and choose Add to create a new profile for the game:


  • Set the Game name: define how the profile will be named
  • Add a Boxart: choose the background picture. Usually, the screenshot of the game looks good
  • Associated apps field is inactive because there’s no config yet. You can assign *.exe files later by editing the previously added Game Profile
  • Press Add to finish the creation of a profile. The config creates automatically.

Now you will see the Main workspace:


Config is a configuration file that keeps data about all the mappings you have added and other modifications. Each Config has a contextual menu, which includes:

  • Save — keep the changes in the config file
  • LED settings — manage the LED settings for a certain config. These settings override the LED settings in Preferences.
  • Clone to... — duplicate the chosen config
  • Open file location — see the config file in its storage folder
  • Share — upload your config to reWASD Community
  • Rename — change the name of a config
  • Delete — remove the selected config
