How to Change a Name on an Apple Wireless Keyboard on a PC

by William Pullman

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.

1

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

2

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

3

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.
