Razer has seven different color profiles built into some of their new keyboards. They have a shortcut assigned to each of these profiles. When you press the shortcut keys, the lighting on your keyboard switches to the color of that profile. I tried a combination of shortcuts, and here’s what I discovered.

On your Razer keyboard, press FNCtrl + 1-7 to change the color of the lighting on your keyboard. This is a simple and timesaving option to customize your keyboard lighting. To customize these color profiles, you’ll have to use Razer Synapse.

Another method to change the colors of your Razer keyboard is to use Chroma Studio. Razer designs this software to help its users change the colors of their keyboards and special effects. Using this software helped me discover the number of options it offered. I’ll break it down into further steps to ease the process. This method allows you to customize colors and effects of your liking.  

Here’s how you can change the color of your Razer keyboard using Chrome Studio:

  1. First, open Razer Synapse on your computer and select Chroma Studio under Modules. 
  2. Start by selecting an effect under the Add Effect option in the Studio tab. 
  3. Now, choose the Chroma effect. It will be added to your layers. So, to create your Chroma effect, different options are available on the toolbar, including Selector (Ctrl + S), which allows you to develop the highlighting development a Pen (Ctrl + P), which enables you to draw on LEDs, Paint Bucket (Ctrl +B). Move and remove tools to drag the positions or delete the entire product. 
  4. Next, choose the keys you’ve decided to show the effect.
  5. One way to select the keys is to choose directly on the keyboard or via the Quick Selections menu.
  6. Select the key, and choose the color in the ‘EFFECTS’ settings on the right. You can also select different gradient patterns. Another important thing is every effect on Synapse has its speed, playback, density, and angle options. Choose your favorite product and then click on Save. 
  7. Additionally, the left side of the screen shows you the custom effects, so you know what you have created. 
Tip: Saved presets save a lot of time if you want to keep switching between your favorite color and effects.
