*K100 Control Wheel Uses*

I finally found an actual use for this wheel other than the rarely used and stupidly keyboard-limited RGB brightness adjustment.
 

Browser tab scrolling!
It may sound stupid, but I often have so many tabs open with several of the same topic bunched up together that spotting which one I'm on and clicking others without accidentally clicking the mute or the X on them (using Brave browser) becomes more of a hassle the smaller they get.

In Chromium-based browsers, ctrl+tab and ctrl+shift+tab are used to scroll back and forth between tabs, meanwhile you can use your thumb to hit F for going in and out of fullscreen in videos and spacebar for stop/play, and at the same time still control your mouse.
Give it a try!

 

So now I'm curious what uses other people found, please share!

I have been asking for a long, long, long time of making the RGB brightness scroll wheel support all the devices you have. Or to have a simple list you can pick and choose. If you want the keyboard lights down then more than likely you like to turn down the RGB on other devices as well. Not sure why this was added off jump with this keyboard.

 

I mainly use my for zoom in and out on photos to edit. Or a jog wheel when editing/watching movies or listening to tracks.

Yeah well, not having a simple way to turn off all RGB is so backwards.
I used to have all sorts of brands, Razer let me just have them turn off automatically on idle, genius. Wooting made me have to press and hold a key combination to change KB brightness, terrible!

What I use is a dedicated profile that turns off lights everywhere, and while that is fine with only like 3 or 4 different profiles, for people with many more profiles they will need to find a way to directly address them, not just cycle through with the profile button.

Anyway, why zoom on the control wheel? Is holding CTRL and using mouse wheel not as good?
