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.

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. Click the "Bluetooth" icon on your computer desktop and make sure Bluetooth is turned on.

Click the Windows Start button, if you have Windows 7, and select "Control Panel." Click "Add a Device" under the "Hardware and Sound" category. The "Add a device" window appears with a list of available Bluetooth devices. If you have Windows 10, click the Windows Start button and select "Connect" from the menu that appears.

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

Type the code on the keyboard to confirm the connection.
