This is a tutorial that will allow you to answer, hang up, or ignore incoming Skype Calls, directly from your Logitech G930 Headset.

 

You must have AutoHotKey and the Logitech Gaming Software installed. They both should be updated to the latest release.

 

 

 

STEP 1

 

 

Open Logitech Gaming Software and Navigate to the "Customize G-Keys" but clicking on the "G Key" icon on the bottom of the screen.

Click on an available (black) square in the top box titled "Profiles".

 

 

 


 

STEP 2

 

 
This will open the "New Profile" window.

 

 


 

STEP 3

 

 

Enter an "Answer Call" and "Skype Hotkeys" in the "Name" and "Description" fields, respectively.

Browse to your Skype executable using the browse button.

Take note of your Skype directory. You will need it again in STEP 19.

Make sure both check boxes are unchecked.

Click "OK".

 


 

STEP 4

 

 

Create a new command by selecting the "+" symbol on the left hand "Commands" menu.

The "Command Editor" window will appear. 

 

Type "Answer Call" in the "Name" field.

Make sure "Record delays between events" is unchecked.

You may check "Display command name on the GamePanel display".

Confirm "Repeat Options" is set to "None".

 

 

Keystroke Procedure:

Click the "Start Recording Button".

Press and hold the "Windows Key", press and release the letter "K"  then release the "Windows Key". 

Press and hold the "Alt" key, press and release the "Page Up" key then release the "Alt" key.

 

 

Your keystrokes should be identical to the image above. If the sequence is not identical, retry the steps listed in the Keystroke Procedure box, above.

 

 


 

STEP 5

 

 

Right click on the first "Alt" entry in the Keystroke sequence. 
Select "Insert Delay".

 


 

STEP 6

 

 

Select "Edit".

 


 

STEP 7

 

 

Type the integer "3000" and hit the enter key on your keyboard.

Confirm all settings in the "Command Editor" window as depicted above.

Click "OK".

 


 

STEP 8

 

 

Drag the "Answer Call" command from the Command Window to the Hotkey "G1".

 Create a new command by selecting the "+" symbol on the left hand "Commands" menu.

 


 

STEP 9

 

 

The "Command Editor" window will appear again. 

Type "Ignore Call" in the "Name" field.

 

Make sure "Record delays between events" is unchecked.

You may check "Display command name on the GamePanel display".

Confirm "Repeat Options" is set to "None".

 

 

Keystroke Procedure:

Click the "Start Recording Button".

Press and hold the "Windows Key", press and release the letter "K"  then release the "Windows Key". 

Press and hold the "Alt" key, press and hold the "Shift" key, press and hold the "Page Down" key then release "Shift" and "Alt" keys.

 

 

Your keystrokes should be identical to the image above. If the sequence is not identical, retry the steps listed in the Keystroke Procedure box, directly above.

 


 

STEP 10

 

 

Drag the "Ignore Call" command from the Command Window to the Hotkey "G2".

 Create a new command by selecting the "+" symbol on the left hand "Commands" menu.

 


 

STEP 11

 

 

 

The "Command Editor" window will appear again. 

Type "Hang Up" in the "Name" field.

 

Make sure "Record delays between events" is unchecked.

You may check "Display command name on the GamePanel display".

Confirm "Repeat Options" is set to "None".

 

 

Keystroke Procedure:

 

Click the "Start Recording Button".

Press and hold the "Windows Key", press and release the letter "K"  then release the "Windows Key". 

Press and hold the "Alt" key, press and release the "Page Down" key then release the "Alt" key.

 

 

Your keystrokes should be identical to the image above. If the sequence is not identical, retry the steps listed in the Keystroke Procedure box, directly above.

 


 

STEP 12

 

 


Good Work! If you have gotten this far, you have tackled the hardest part of this tutorial. 

As you may have noticed, this tutorial is repetitious but fairly straight forward.

 

Drag the "Hang Up" command from the Command Window to the Hotkey "G3".

Close the "Logitech Gaming Software" window by selecting the "X" in the upper right hand corner.

 


 

STEP 13

 

 

 

Open Skype.

 

If you can't figure this out, press and hold the "Alt" key and then press and release the "F4" key. Release the "Alt" key. Go play outside.


Otherwise, proceed to Step 14.

 

 


 

STEP 14

 

 

 

From the "Tools" menu, select "Options".

This will open up the "Skype™ - Options" window.

Check "Answer Call".

Check "Ignore Call".

Check "Hang up" 

Select "Answer Call" then click "Change selected shortcut"

The "Set Hotkey for Answer Call" window will appear. 

 


 

STEP 15

 

 

 

Confirm that "Alt" is the only check box checked.

 

The field on the right should read "PgUp".  

If it doesn't position your cursor in the field, then press and release the "Page Up" Key.

 

Confirm the settings as depicted above.

 

Click "OK".

 

Select "Ignore Call" and click "Change selected shortcut".

 


 

STEP 16

 

 

 

Confirm that "Alt" and "Shift" are the only check boxes checked.

 

The field on the right should read "PgDn".  

If it doesn't position your cursor in the field, then press and release the "Page Down" Key. 

 

Confirm the settings as depicted above.

 

Click "OK".

 

Select "Hang up" and click "Change selected shortcut".

 


 

STEP 17

 

 

 

Confirm that "Alt" is the only check box checked.

 

The field on the right should read "PgDn".  

If it doesn't position your cursor in the field, then press and release the "Page Down" Key. 

 

Confirm the settings as depicted above.

 

Click "OK".

 

Click "Save".

 

Minimize your Skype window.

 

 


 

STEP 18

 

 

 

Right click on the "AutoHotKey" icon in your "Task Tray".

 

Select and click "Edit this Script".

 

 


 

STEP 19

 

 

 

Your AutoHotKey script will open within Notepad.

 

Paste the following code into the Notepad.

 

AutoHotKey Script:

;SKYPE HOTKEYS

#k::

Run, C:\Program Files (x86)\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe

return

 

 

Save and Close Notepad.

 

 


 

STEP 20

 

 

 

Right click on the "AutoHotKey" icon in your "Task Tray".

 

Select and click "Reload This Script".

 

 


 

STEP 21

Blackjack! You're all done!!

Step 4 goes against what I've read on reviews claiming that 'The G buttons only work for certain programs, media players".

If you can assign custom keystroke combinations to them then they effectively will work with everything.

As long as the program accepts hotkeys, or are versed in AHK, I would see no issues using the "G Buttons" for just about, well -- anything.

it probably is, but to confirm, this is possible with G35 too right? although answering a skype call in the bathroom away from the pc would be great lol

I don't see why not... Has the same G-Buttons and I'm pretty sure it uses the same software (Logitech Gaming Software).

Thanks for the guide! Maybe I will use it because mainly now I just answer when I die in the game.
If answering quickly does matter to you, you could always check OverWolf-it's a nice program
