If you are reprogramming MaKey MaKey on Mac, you're in luck because Joylabz officially supports Mac reprogramming and there are less steps. Don't fret if you are on Windows/Linux, because it is still within your grasp!

Go ahead and read through the full Advanced Guide and see if you can get your MaKey reprogrammed:

For Windows, you might need to fiddle with driver installation from Device Manager. If you run into snags, look for help in the comments below, the discussion page here, or at the MaKey MaKey forums. You can also contact if using a Joylabz MaKey MaKey.

Post a comment about your experience. Were you able to reprogram the MaKey? Did you run into snags? Do you need help still? Do you have any MaKey reprogramming ideas you would like to share?

NEEDED: If you take screenshots along the process, please post them along with your operating system! All help creating tutorials greatly appreciated!!
