MagSpeed adaptive scroll-wheel with SmartShift Wheel

The speed-adaptive scroll wheel shifts between two scrolling modes automatically. As you scroll faster, it will automatically shift from line-by-line scrolling to free-spinning.

  • Line-by-line (ratchet) mode — ideal for precise navigation of items and lists.
  • Hyper-fast (free-spin) mode — near-frictionless spinning, letting you fly through long documents and web pages.Wheel 2
Switch modes manually

You can also manually switch between modes by pressing the mode shift button.Mode

By default, mode shift is assigned to the button on top of the mouse.

In Logitech Options software, you can decide to disable SmartShift if you prefer to stay in one scrolling mode and always shift manually. You can also adjust the SmartShift sensitivity, which will change the speed required to automatically shift into free spinning.

Horizontal Scroll

Scroll

You can scroll horizontally with your MX Anywhere 3!
This is done with a two-button combination: Press and hold one of the side buttons and scroll with the wheel simultaneously.

NOTE: The horizontal scroll is ON by default in your Logitech Options software. You can customize this feature in the Point & Scroll tab in Logitech Options.
For more detailed information on Horizontal scroll, click here.

Back/Forward buttons

The back and forward buttons enhance navigation and simplify tasks.Button

To move back and forward: 

  • Press the back or forward button to navigate web or document pages, depending on the location of the mouse pointer.

NOTE: On a Mac, enabling the back/forward buttons requires installation of Logitech Options software.
In addition to enabling the buttons for use with Macs, Logitech Options software lets you assign other useful functions to the buttons, including undo/redo, OS navigation, volume up/down, and more.

App-Specific Settings

Your mouse buttons can be assigned to perform different functions for different applications. For instance, you can assign the side buttons to control volume in Spotify, copy/paste in Microsoft Excel, or undo/redo in Adobe Photoshop.
When you install Logitech options, you can install predefined app-specific settings that will adapt the mouse button behavior to the selected applications.
Here are the app-specific settings we have created for you:

Button 2

With these settings, the wheel mode-shift button retains the same functionality across all applications.
Each of these settings can be customized manually, for any application.

Adjust the feel of the scroll wheel

When you scroll in Ratchet mode, you can adjust the feel of your scroll wheel on the “Point & Scroll” tab in Logitech Options.

  • A lower force will make the ratchet very subtle and smooth.
  • A higher force will make every ratchet very firm and precise.

Assign gestures to the top button

If you want more advanced functionality, you can assign the top button of the mouse to be the “Gesture Button”. This will transform your top button into a powerful multi-function button allowing you to use gestures for desktop navigation, app management, pan, zoom, and more.
On the Mouse tab, select the top button below the wheel and click on Gesture Button.

By default, the gesture buttons will allow you to navigate between windows and desktops.

In order to perform the gestures, you will need to hold the button while you move the mouse.

Flow between two computers

You can work on multiple computers with a single MX Anywhere 3.
With Logitech Flow, you can use the mouse cursor to move from one computer to the next. You can even copy and paste between computers, and if you have a compatible Logitech keyboard, such as MX Keys, the keyboard will follow the mouse and switch computers at the same time.

You will need to install Logitech Options software on both computers and follow these instructions.
