Z/Tracer - Factory Reset Procedure

Z/Tracer - Factory Reset Procedure

To reset the settings saved in your Z or Tracer's firmware to their defaults, follow the steps below.
  1. Unplug your mouse.
  2. Hold down the main left and right mouse buttons.
  3. Plug your mouse back in while continuing to hold both mouse buttons.
  4. On the Z a countdown should be displayed on the OLED screen along with the the mouse vibrating. While on Tracer the logo backlight will flash red.
  5. Continue holding down both mouse buttons until the countdown completes, or the logo stops flashing red.
Note: If the X1 Control Panel is running when you do this, your custom settings will be loaded back onto your mouse immediately. So if you want to test with the default settings exit the X1 Control Panel before performing these steps. Or backup your profiles to a file then use the "Clear and Reset Settings in Driver and Mouse" option from the X1 Control Panels cogs main menu.
