The Logitech G Hub stuck on the loading screen issue is a prevalent problem that hinders your ability to customize your peripherals. This typically arises when device drivers are outdated or configured improperly. Other causes might include outdated software, corrupted software files, conflicts with other programs, issues with hardware connectivity, or limited system resources, among others.

This article will guide you through precise steps to resolve this issue.

1. Close the G-Hub and Plug the Gear

  2. Disconnect all Logitech peripherals.
  3. Launch the Logitech G Hub Application without the peripherals connected.
  4. Reconnect the devices and check if the loading issue persists.
