How To Change Color On Atrix Keyboard? [All Models]

This guide will teach you all on how to change color on Atrix Keyboard using the button combinations dedicated for each model.

Expert Verified by Abdul Hannan

RGB keyboards come with customizable backlights for switching keyboard colors. The simplest way to change color on Atrix Keyboards is through the key combinations dedicated to each keyboard model, such as FN+DEL or FN+INS. 

Key Takeaways
  • The FN+INS lets you experiment with various backlighting effects in multiple Atrix Keyboard models.
  • Toggle between solid colors by pressing the FN+HM, FN+Del, or others depending on the particular model.
  • Ensure a well-functioning USB port, or refresh the connection if the backlight fails to come on.

Important: Different Atrix Keyboard models have different key combinations, so verify yours before moving ahead.

  • Modify Brightness And Speed: The standard key combinations, like FN+Up/Down and FN+Left\Right, controlled the brightness and speed of the keyboard’s lighting, respectively.
  • Control Backlight:  Using the FN+Backspace keys, I turned the backlights on or off. Similarly, if any preset or color mode is malfunctioning, simultaneously hold the FN+Esc button to reset the color settings.

  • Apply Single Color: I set the keyboard to a mono-color mode by pressing the FN+Spacebar to create stable lighting. The alphabetical keys should light up in different backlight colors. Tap the one that has your desired color to apply it all over the keyboard.

  • For Custom Backlighting: One of the best parts about this Atrix model is that it offers customized backlighting. To enable it, I altogether tapped FN+P, which turned on the recording mode. Next, I pushed the keys displaying the colors I wanted to use in the customization. Hitting FN+P again stopped the recording and saved my changes.

Different Backlighting Effects On Atrix Keyboard

Many preset lighting effects are offered on Atrix Keyboards, for instance;

  • Rainbow Mode.
  • Breathing Mode.
  • Wave Mode.
  • Scatter Mode.
  • Shooting Light Mode.
  • Highlight Mode.

Last Words

Lastly, I rely on some troubleshooting methods to resolve backlighting-related issues, such as restarting the computer, reconnecting the keyboard, cleaning dust in the USB ports and ensuring they are functional. However, unlike most brands, Atrix does not have a dedicated support forum. Hence, you would have to rely on public forums, like GameStop, to get answers to specific keyboard-related queries.
