Syncing replacement mice and keyboards with a wireless Logitech receiver is fast and does not require any additional software to be installed when paired with a unifying USB receiver once the Logitech unifying software is installed. A unifying USB receiver manages multiple input devices through a single receiver, thereby saving valuable USB ports for other uses. Devices supporting the unifying software are identified with the unifying symbol located on the bottom of mice and keyboards, as well as the outside edge of the USB receiver.
An example of the Logitech unifying symbol from a keyboard looks like this:
