I closed the Q software, but I'm not able to use the on-board profiles on my keyboard. What should I do?

If you want to use the on-board profiles on a computer running the Q-software, not only will you need to shut down the Q software, you will also need to stop the Q service from running. To do this on Windows, press control + alt + delete and access your task manager, click on the services tab, and find the "das_keyboard_q-service" service. Right click, stop the service, and close down the task manager. While the service is stopped, you will be able to switch to an on-board profile.
