Key Features

Customization Made Easy

A modern and user-friendly interface allows you to customize button functions, modify pointer settings and tailor device functionality to meet your individual needs within minutes.

The Simplicity of One

One integrated software application works for all of your Kensington trackballs, mice and presenters. An Update Reminder process provides notifications to ensure that you have access to the latest customization options for your devices, and Connect Tutor will automatically launch when a new device is selected to easily guide you through the setup process.

Personalized Setting Protection

The Bind-to-Cloud feature saves your personalized settings to a cloud account (Google Drive or OneDrive) so they can be retrieved at any time.

Increased Productivity

Productivity is about speed. Being able to quickly make edits and changes is crucial to an efficient workflow. Customizing your input device can improve your productivity.

KensingtonWorks™ provides you with endless function combinations to enhance productivity and customize your workflow options. All settings can be assigned per application so you can customize your device buttons based on the application you are using.
