The installation process for the Razer Imperator is just the same as the other mice - first you have to go to Razer's website and download the drivers file. Once the driver is downloaded, you need to launch it and you will be prompted with a screen asking you what language you wish to install the software in. Once you choose the appropriate language, you will just need to follow the on-screen navigation until the drivers are completely installed. The drivers require a reboot of your system to be fully functional.
When you first open up the Imperator's device driver software, you will get a screen that has an image of the mouse with all the programmable buttons numbered and a complete list of the numbers to the left with drop down lists for changing functions. When you continue on to the "Adjust Performance" screen, you'll be able to change the DPI settings of the mouse from its default of 1500DPI, as well as change the acceleration and polling rates. The mouse has the option for on-the-fly sensitivity settings, which you will find under the Sensitivity Stages page, found by clicking the button above the DPI slider bar.
On the "Manage Profiles" screen, you'll be able to set up different profiles for the mouse. You can set up a different profile with preset DPI settings to each of them for your gaming sessions or for your average day-to-day usage. The "Manage Macros" screen allows you to set up different macros to be assigned to the buttons on the mouse. On the "Lighting and Maintenance" screen, you'll be able to set the Razer logo on the back of the mouse to on or off, turn the battery indicator on or off, and check for driver updates.
