Key notes

  • Logitech G HUB is an app that allows people to customize their Logitech gaming devices.
  • On this app, you can create assignments for the company's mice and keyboards.
  • This guide will show you what you can do to fix assignments if they suddenly stop working.

Logitech G is a big name in gaming peripherals and G HUB allows you to optimize and customize your Logitech G gear. You can create unique profiles for each peripheral and choose which features you want to activate. However, sometimes, the assignments are not working.

Why aren’t the assignments in Logitech G HUB working?

Assignments within Logitech G HUB are the commands tied to a specific input on a mouse or keyboard. For example, a gaming mouse may have buttons on the side. You can assign those buttons to, perhaps, open Task View, and the other to close the game you’re playing.

Sometimes assignments, and to a greater extent Logitech G HUB, will stop working and there are various reasons for this:

  • Faulty drivers – If your gear is not correctly set up, G HUB won’t be able to make the right assignments.
  • Firewall block – The Windows Firewall or a third-party one can prevent Logitech G HUB from working properly, so don’t hesitate to learn what to do if the disabled firewall still blocks apps.
  • Devices not being detected – This may be caused by an imperfect connection or a malfunctioning cable.

Now that we know why this happens, let’s start troubleshooting this problem to fix it.

How do I fix assignments not working on Logitech G HUB?

This guide will cover three of the most common and effective solutions to assignments not working in Logitech G HUB. But there are a couple of things that you can do:

  • Check the ports of your peripherals, they may be loose.
  • Make sure you have the correct device connected to Logitech G HUB.
  • Download the most recent version of the software.
  • And, of course, restart your PC.

Also note that Logitech G HUB works for both Windows 10 and Windows 11 just fine, even if the website only mentions the former.

1. Update the GPU drivers

  1. Start by searching for the Windows 11 Device Manager and click the first entry that you see.
  2. Click Display adapters to make your computer’s GPU appear. Right-click the GPU and select Update driver (if you have multiple, do this to both).
  3. Click Search automatically for drivers to update the GPU. The update will happen automatically.
  4. You can also try uninstalling the drivers. Right-click the GPU entry and select Uninstall.
  5. A small window will appear warning you of what you’re about to do. Check off the box you see and click the Uninstall button.
  6. Afterward, right-click the entry again and install the drivers again.

A faster and simpler solution, if this one doesn’t update the driver, is to use a third-party tool to automatically find and install driver updates.

Ensure your system performs smoothly and avoids all GPU driver errors by using a complete driver update assistant, namely Outbyte Driver Updater, that will do the job for you. Here's how to safely update your drivers:
  1. Download and install the Outbyte Driver Updater app.
  2. Launch the software and wait for the app to detect all incompatible drivers.
  3. Now, it will show you a list of all faulty drivers to select the ones to Update or Ignore.
