Hardware, How To, Mac OS, Software, Windows21 Comments

While I was fixing my Razer Blackwidow keyboard, I want to keep my PC operating, so I tried to connect the Apple Wireless Keyboard to my Windows 10 PC. Here’s how I did it.

Latest Version of Windows 10

In Windows 10 Pro version 2004, adding Bluetooth devices, including Apple’s is much easier.

  1. Go to Bluetooth and Other Devices Settings by Navigate it from Start > Type in Bluetooth, and select the Bluetooth and Other Devices Settings.
  2. Turn on the keyboard and you will see the indicator flashing.
  3. Click on “Add Bluetooth or Other Device”.
  4. Under “Add a Device” window, select “Bluetooth”.
  5. Your device will be listed in the next screen.
  6. Select it, and Add the PIN by typing it from your Apple Keyboard and Press Enter.
  7. Done.

I’ve made a short video to make it easier to understand the steps

Older Version of Windows 10

For older version of Windows 10, here’s how to add Apple Keyboard to Windows.

  • 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 (shown on the screen) and hit Return. If no code showing, type 123456.
  • Your Keyboard should successfully pair with Windows 10 via Bluetooth
