Key notes

  • Logitech G HUB is an app that allows you to customize gaming profiles with Logitech gaming peripherals.
  • One of the features is to create profiles for certain layouts and then automatically switch them when you change games.
  • Some have complained about problems plaguing this auto-switching feature and this guide will show you how to fix them.

Logitech G HUB is a software that allows you to customize Logitech gaming peripherals like mice and keyboards. One of the features of G HUB is the ability to create profiles for individual games. And that’s where auto-switching profiles come in, but the feature may fail sometimes.

What causes problems with auto-switching profiles?

Auto-switching profiles are a feature that automatically changes a G HUB profile from your Logitech gaming keyboard to fit the game that you’re playing.

Instead of manually changing configurations every time you want to play a different game, G HUB will do it for you. This is great so you won’t have to waste time figuring things out on your keyboard.

But sometimes problems arise with G HUB not switching profiles. These include:

  • Windows and software updates – If G HUB or Windows are not updated frequently, you will encounter such bugs.
  • Faulty drivers – When your hardware is not installed properly you may expect G HUB issues in recognizing it.
  • Hardware problems – Although it’s improbable, if one or more keys malfunction, you may have issues with switching profiles.

Now that we know where the problems may arise, let’s fix this issue with our solutions below.

How do I fix the auto-switching profiles in G HUB?

  • Restart your computer.
  • Choose the right profile for your game.
  • Run the troubleshooter like you would do if a microphone isn’t working.
