After hours of frustration and searching I found that yes there is a work around for the profile switch button. And it is asinine to say we have 6 programmable buttons but lock us out of said buttons when we want to save it to the hardware???? So without corsair's help or support here is the work around. Once you have it set and import it back into iCue DON'T try touching the actions again as it reset mine and i had to delete and re-import the edited profile.

Just use 'MouseProfileSwitch' instead of 'Mouse1' in that tutorial.

TLDNR - Make a macro, bind it to a mouse button. Go to users/appdata/roaming/corsair/CUE/profiles , Find your cueprofile. change the button you bound, to Mouse1.

For safety: Rebind one of your dpi keys or sniper button or forward/back buttons to act as your left mouse button. I also make one of my keyboard media keys backups for all the mouse buttons. Or make a profile switching action that goes to another profile.

Make the Macro you want to take the place of the left mouse button.

Bind it to your middle mouse button.

Export your profile somewhere and open it up.

Find the ID of your profile.

Close icue.

Now find the .cueprofile in users/yourusername/appdata/roaming/corsair/CUE/profiles

open it up, ctrl+f search for the name of the macro you made. It should be in one <first> branches of the <value#> branches under <Actions>. Inside the <second> branch, you should see:


change the Mouse3 to Mouse1. Save it

---------<name>Your ProfileName</name>
--------------<properties size="dynamic">
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . <key>Mouse</key>
--------------------------------<properties size="dynamic">
------------------------------------------------------------<first> your macro name should be 3 or 4 layers deep into the <first> fold/branch.
------------------------------------------------------------------<first>Mouse3</first> change this to Mouse1
