    How did you install the software (on catalina)? The GHUB “zip” file extracted install upon running said “damaged”!

    I just downloaded it from Logitech site (https://www.logitechg.com/en-us/innovation/g-hub.html) and installed it from there. No different that what you’ve done I assume.

    Thank you for this writeup! I just bought a G604 to use mainly with my macbook pro 2018. The connection is seamless when I use the Lightspeed connection but I noticed that it drops sometimes when I am on bluetooth. I prefer to connect via bluetooth on the go or when I am not gaming and switch to lightspeed when I play CSGO – this helps conserve battery as well. But the dropping bluetooth connection is a little concerning to me. Did you face any issues like this? If so, were there any fixes that worked for you? Thanks!

    I like the mouse itself a lot. I was just hoping that capturing control + up would work. It apparently can’t figure that out for mission control. But other than that it’s better than the Logitech MX3 I dropped, broke and replaced with the G604. 😀

    Hi, Thanks for the article, it helped me to know this mouse. So if i need mouse that can support mac os and pc and able to move seamlessly, is this the mouse that i looking for ? Because currently, i’m using mac for working, and pc for gaming and i want to have one mouse that can switch between them seamlessly.

  6. Ken Ng says:

    It depends how you plan to switch between the two. As I mentioned in the article, the Bluetooth mode on the Mac can be a little “laggy”.

    What I do however is to use a USB switch that allows me two swap the mouse to be used using the USB receiver on my two MacBooks. You can definitely do the same with your Windows PC and Mac as well. This is the USB switch I’m using: https://www.atpeaz.com/using-a-usb-3-0-switch-box-for-the-ultimate-convenience/

    The mouse definitely works really well on the Mac. I imagine it should be similarly as well on Windows.

    How do you change the wheel scroll speed? It’s too slow for me and if I change the setting in the the standard Mac mouse setting it doesn’t affect the speed. And in G Hub I could not find a way to modify this. Thanks!

  8. Ken Ng says:

    I didn’t change it actually since it is scrolling fast enough for me. It scrolls faster when compared to the G602 and when I need to scroll a lot faster on long pages, i just switch to the hyperscroll mode and spin the wheel, then switch back to the ratchet mode to reach where I want.

    The scroll speed on the Mouse settings on macOS should make it scroll up/down faster. I just tested it. What happens when you change that configuration?

    This review is a saver, as there are not much reviews about it on a Mac. I’m not a gamer, but I’d love me some shortcuts, especially the Mac-specific gestures.

    I see you wrote that they work, but the comment from @BenR has me a little worried… He said it cant do Command+Up arrow (app expose). Is there some workaround he is missing? This litteraly pushes me away from buying it.

    Any thoughts on that?

    P.S. I bought MX Master 3, which has all of those functions nicely. But its a bit bulky for my hands and the fact that the scroll wheel has a lot of lags and bugs, I’m in the shop for something different.

    Thanks! 🙂

    I’ve just updated the article to show you how I set up macros to support App Expose and Mission Control. It basically uses the keyboard shortcuts which is ⌃+Up arrow and ^+down arrow on my Mac. So in short, yes it does.

    Thanks so much @KenNg!
