Connectivity between your Bluetooth keyboard and your computer depends on your Bluetooth transceiver.
If your keyboard did not include a Microsoft Bluetooth transceiver, you must pair the device by using your computer’s built-in (non-Microsoft transceiver) and the computer’s Bluetooth software configuration program.
Always configure a passkey when pairing a keyboard or number pad to a computer. The way that you specify a passkey depends on the Bluetooth program on your computer. If your Bluetooth program gives you a choice about how to create the passkey, let the program create one for you rather than creating your own or not using a passkey. When you type the passkey, you will not see feedback on the screen. After typing the passkey, you must press Enter on the keyboard or number pad to complete the pairing.
Some Bluetooth keyboard models include transceivers with buttons on them to make it easier to pair the device to the computer.
The Keyboard Elite for Bluetooth and the Wireless Optical Desktop for Bluetooth do not have First Connect buttons on their transceivers. For more information about pairing these keyboards to your computer, see the Bluetooth Connection Guide or the documentation included with your Bluetooth program.
If your computer includes a built-in Bluetooth transceiver, you may be able to use it to connect your keyboard without using a Microsoft USB transceiver.
If you connect with a non-Microsoft Bluetooth transceiver, some advanced Mouse and Keyboard Centre features may not work. Mouse and Keyboard Centre is designed to work with the Microsoft Bluetooth software. Toshiba Bluetooth software is known to work in most cases. Other Bluetooth software might work but is not supported.
There are several versions of Bluetooth programs that help you connect your device to your Bluetooth wireless transceiver. See the documentation that was included with your computer or contact the computer manufacturer for information on how to use their program.
Note If your computer cannot detect a Bluetooth transceiver, the Bluetooth software will not be available in the Windows menus.
