    How can you program this thing to run everything?
    The site tells you that it can raise the volume and also be programmed to do everything else.

    How do you switch between functions, isn't it just ONE KNOB and nothing else?

    It just applies the commands to the selected window...Not bad if you plan on having only one app open at a time.

    I've got to get a hold of one, because I still don't get it.

    How does a scroll knob and a push-down click function know what you want to select?
    Do keep turning the knob until it lands on the button you want and then click?
    It states that you can program it with any keyboard function(unlimited). So how does it know what keyboard function I want to use if it only has one knob?

    It looks nice but I'm still lost on this one...................

    It's in the software...

    You select the app. (.exe) to apply the commands to, then select the action (turn left, right, click, push and left, or push and right) and apply the key command to each action...
