How to Connect a Wireless Apple Keyboard to a PC

by William Pullman

Apple Wireless Keyboards were designed for use with Mac computers, but PC owners with a Bluetooth-enabled computer can also use the keyboard. The Apple Wireless Keyboard is smaller than a standard keyboard, making it suitable for PC users with limited desk space. Pairing the keyboard is similar to pairing any wireless device with a Windows PC, though you are required to input a code on the keyboard to complete the connection.

1

Press the button on the right side of the Apple Wireless Keyboard to turn on the device. The keyboard is discoverable when it's powered on.

2

Click the Windows "Start" button and select "Control Panel."

3

Click "Add a Device" under the "Hardware and Sound" category. The "Add a device" window appears with a list of available Bluetooth devices.

4

Click "Apple Wireless Keyboard" in the window and then click "Next." A code appears on the screen.

5

Type the code on the keyboard to confirm the connection.
