At this point, your Wooting keyboard is set up for basic operation, gaming or furious typing. You can download our lightweight software, Wootility, to:
We recommend you to watch the introductory video that pops up when you open up Wootility for the first time, to get your bearings. If you accidentally close it, or want to view it again, click the button below.
The Wooting keyboard has two modes: digital and analog. You can swap between these at any time by pressing the Mode key (located at the top right of your keyboard).
The basic teardown of a mechanical keyboard starts with taking off the keycaps. We provide you with our 2-sided Püller for this. One side is for taking off the keycaps safely, the other is for taking off the switches.

This is your everyday typing mode. Keys will either be on or off, just like you are used to.

To pull out keycaps, you need to use the keycap side of the Püller. Place it over a keycap with the prongs on the left and right side and push into place. You should hear a click from both sides, indicating that the Püller has a good grab from either side. Now, just pull gently directly upwards. Avoid twisting, turning or bending while pulling as that can damage the switches.
To place keycaps back on, simply locate them on the stem and push down gently.
This is where you can put that First Aid Kit of 4 switches to good use. You can swap a broken switch, or simply feel out the other 2 types of switches.
Much like pulling keycaps, pulling the switches is simple when you know how. You will need to remove the keycap first by following the instructions above. Now, locate the switch side of the Püller. Place the prongs on the switch locks, pinch with your fingers, and pull up. The switches pop out with relatively little force.
To re-install a switch, locate it on the hole the same way it came off, (the is a little arrow on the left side of the switch, this should always face left) and push straight down.
