Logitech prank?

I have a younger cousin (16) who always opens a google image of "gay men" on my untended tech, i dont really appreciate this. anyway i thought i might get some pay back and modify his logitech gaming software and remap all his macro keys on his g510 and all the mouse buttons on his mx518 to open the same image when ever pressed. i found an xml document under "...appdata-local-logitech gaming software-profiles" which contains all the macros and key maps. I tested changing all the mouse's keymaps to do the one thing, however when i launched the LGS the mouse mapping reset to the default and reset the xml document :(

is there a way (with logitech software or not) to remap all his keys to do one function? minus the keys that is needed to revert it?

I would just make them all do Alt+F4 so he exits his games mid fight.

nah he does game, but he spends a lot of time doing stuff like video editing, so that would be a tad to cruel

 

 

he's trying to tell you something

 

yeah, that he is gay?

Does he have a logitech mouse? if so you can rebind his left click to a macro anything you like 

 

 

yes he has a mx518, however logitech has a restriction where one mouse key must be bound to left click and the other to right click, thats why i tried modifying the xml document to bypass that restriction, which failed :( 

 

but i just had a thought, is it possible to rebound a keyboard key (something like the "E" key and delay by like 3000ms) which would open a webpage, something very discreet but hard to find, especially if he was typing or gaming, as it would appear random.

 

I remember a time when my onboard mouse profile got corrupted and rebound the back key to press and hold control down until windows rebooted. it took 2 windows reinstalls and trying different keyboards with calling logitech and them balming windows and microsoft blaming logitech (tech support was great) until i realised it was my mouse.

You need to kill Logitech SetPoint completely, then you can edit that XML file. Else it will save the current settings on exit of Logitech SetPoint software.

is that as simple as killing the "Lcore.exe" in task manager?
