PC users who have a Apple Wireless Keyboard can connect the wireless input device to their computer via Bluetooth connection. As with all Bluetooth devices, the Apple Wireless Keyboard is given a name when connected to the computer. If the given name is a series of letters or numbers, or words that don't make it obvious that the connected device is a keyboard, you can change the name to something suitable. The name is changed in the Properties options for the device.

Step 1

Click the Windows "Start" button and then select "Devices and Printers."

Step 2

Right-click the Apple Wireless Keyboard and then select "Properties."

Click the "Bluetooth" tab, delete the current name from the text box and enter the new name for the keyboard. Click "OK" to save your changes.
