Side Buttons On Corsair Ironclaw Wireless Side Buttons Lock Me to an Application.

Recommended Posts


So I have recently got my corsair Ironclaw and when I use the side buttons it locks me to one application and nothing else. For example if I try use the side buttons on chrome, I can no longer use Spotify or Discord (unless I restart my PC). I have the latest version of iCUe and no new updates for the mouse itself. Oh I use the mouse plugged into my PC with the provided cable.

If anyone has any workarounds or fixes for this that would be great.

  3. Select Corsair Utility Engine in the list, and then select Uninstall.
  4. Press Window Key + R to open the Run command.
  5. Type %appdata% and press Enter.
  6. Delete any Corsair folders in the window that pops up.
  7. Return to the Run window and type %localappdata%.
  8. Delete any Corsair folders in the window that pops up.
  9. Open File Explorer and navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\ for iCUE 3, or C:\Program Files\ for iCUE 4.
  10. Delete any Corsair folders in that folder.
  11. Type Regedit in the Run window and then click OK.
  12. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ and delete the Corsair folder.
  13. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ and delete the Corsair folder.
  14. Restart your computer.
  15. Download a new installer file for iCUE from Corsair.com and reinstall.
