Can I disable Logitech gaming framework?

Answered by James Kissner

It is possible to disable the Logitech Gaming Framework (LGF) if you no longer want to use it or if you are experiencing issues with it.

Here are the steps to disable LGF:

1. Start by opening the “Devices and Printers” window on your computer. You can access this by searching for “Devices and Printers” in the Start menu or Control Panel.

2. In the Devices and Printers window, you will see a list of all the devices connected to your computer. Look for the Logitech gaming device that you want to disable. It might be listed as a mouse or keyboard, depending on the specific device you have.

3. Right-click on the Logitech gaming device and select “Remove device” from the context menu. This will remove the device from your computer.

4. Next, you need to prevent the Logitech Gaming Framework from starting up automatically when you boot your computer. To do this, press the Windows key + R to open the Run dialog box. Type “msconfig” (without quotes) and hit Enter.

5. In the System Configuration window, go to the “Startup” tab. Here, you will see a list of all the programs that start up automatically when your computer boots.

6. Look for any entries related to Logitech or the Logitech Gaming Framework. Uncheck the box next to these entries to disable them from starting up.

7. Click on “Apply” and then “OK” to save the changes. You may be prompted to restart your computer for the changes to take effect. If so, go ahead and restart your computer.

After following these steps, the Logitech Gaming Framework should be disabled on your computer. You will no longer see the virtual mouse device or experience any issues related to LGF.

It’s worth noting that disabling LGF will remove any customization options or settings that you may have configured using the software. If you want to re-enable LGF in the future, you can simply reinstall the Logitech Gaming Software or Framework from the Logitech website.

Personal experience:
I have personally disabled the Logitech Gaming Framework on my computer because I prefer to use the default settings for my Logitech gaming mouse. I found that the LGF was causing some compatibility issues with certain games and applications, so I decided to remove it. Following the steps mentioned above, I was able to successfully disable LGF and remove the virtual mouse device. Since then, I haven’t encountered any issues related to the Logitech software.
