Avoid the trouble restoring your Razer profiles!

If, you too have lots of game settings in Synapse, do the following so you can reuse those profiles at a later date:

  • Apply the option "Go Offline" to your Synapse: click More tab on the left side of your mail address > launch said "Go Offline" option.
  • Press the "GO OFFLINE" button on the "OFFLINE MODE" alert.
  • Close and exit Synapse client completely.
  • Make all hidden files, folders and such appear temporarily: go to or, check out the View tab under "Folder Options" > enable the highlighted option "Show bla bla" below. Remember to disable it later, for security reasons.
  • Copy and paste this path "C:\ProgramData\Razer\Synapse\Devices" (without quotation marks, of course) into your browser or address bar.
  • Scroll for a folder entitled Profiles.
  • Copy the location of each file, and then paste that info into your installed browser – you should get a "ProfileName" tag – you might be able to save those profiles on your disk then. Sorry, I just can’t reproduce that situation, nor offer you additional information about that action, as… I am just not a fan of video games. And… you can, of course, choose to delete any empty Synapse profiles you’ve set up. Please be kindly noted that, you will need to re-create your profiles if you choose to delete those empty items.

The Plan B is that, you make proper changes to the Accounts folder under Synapse. You could find said folder by visiting this path C:\ProgramData\Razer\Synapse\Accounts\[Random Name]\Devices\[Your Device Name]\Profiles . See the following screen shot, and review GoldenGnu’s steps for future references.
