Setting Up

Installing Stream Deck Software
To begin using Stream Deck Mini,
download and install the latest software:


Connecting Stream Deck Mini

Updating Stream Deck Mini Firmware

  2. If a firmware update is available, next to the firmware number there will be an update prompt.

Adding An Action To The Canvas

Adding powerful actions to the canvas in Stream Deck is as easy as drag and drop thanks to native integrations with popular software and services.

Pick an action from the right-hand side Action list and drag it onto a key in the canvas.

Customizing An Action

Each Action, once on the Canvas can be customized in various ways by adding a title, changing the icon to a custom image, and more.

  1. Clicking on an action in the canvas opens the property inspector ”PI” in which the key can be customized with title text, title color, text font, custom icon (Image or gif), and more.
  2. Many actions like Microphone toggle, Scene toggle, Hotkey Toggle, and more feature two states – Active or inactive. By default, the inactive state icon will be a slightly adjusted and toned-down version of the active state icon, but it can be customized individually if desired.

Sample Actions

  1. Creating a folder can be done in one of two ways:
  2. Right-click on a key in the canvas and choose Create Folder.
  3. Drag the Create Folder action onto a key on the canvas.
  4. To add an action to a folder, drag and drop it from the canvas onto the folder, or enter the folder and drag a new action from the action list onto the canvas.

Creating A Multi Action

Multi Actions enable powerful configurations and setups of Stream Deck. With Multi Action, a single key can execute multiple actions at the same time or at custom intervals.
