How to Pair Apple Wireless Keyboard with Windows 10

While I was fixing my Razer Blackwidow keyboard, I want to keep my PC operating, so I tried to connect the Apple Wireless Keyboard, the pairing process stopped because the Apple Wireless Keyboard can not detect the key entered.

I found a solution, here it is:

  • In Windows 10’s bluetooth settings (can be found in system tray), click on the icon and then click “Add Bluetooth Device”.
  • Then, on the Apple Wireless Keyboard, hold down Command + W, while Windows is searching for bluetooth devices.
  • Then (hopefully) after it finds your Keyboard, it will want to pair with it. Follow the on screen prompts and eventually you will have to type in a pairing code.
  • Type in this code and hit Return.
  • Your Keyboard should successfully pair with Windows 10 via Bluetooth

How to Create Hi Res Favicon For Your WordPress Website

I realized a traditional favicon pixellated when I viewed from a Hi-Res smartphone screens. After googling for a while I found out that .ico file can stores multiple resolution at a file, so it would be practical to apply it.

Create a square image

I suggest to create a 64×64 px or bigger  with PNG file format, although current Hi-Res screens still using  a 32×32 px dimension.

ps-icon

Convert to .ico

There are manual ways to create multiple resolution .ico, as I read it here. But I will go with more practical way, go to Icon Converter website and upload your created .png file.

ico-converter

You will get your favicon.ico file after a successful conversion.

Put it Live

Upload your favicon.ico to your images folder. And put below code before </head> tag on your page.

if you are using WordPress, paste this code to your functions.php file

All done, now go on check your new Web favicon on your high res devices.
