To many who are used to typing on a regular computer keyboard, having to switch to the smaller keyboard of a laptop can be incredibly frustrating. But wireless keyboards are available which can allow you the same ease and comfort that you enjoy while typing on your computer.
Check Your Laptop
First of all, you must check to see if your laptop has the capability for a wireless keyboard. This will require checking for Bluetooth or RF capability. Looking online for your laptop’s make and model should tell you whether or not you can enjoy the freedom of a wireless keyboard.
Before you install your new wireless keyboard, ensure that its receiver is located 8 or more inches away from interference from items like computer monitors, CPUs, metal objects, fluorescent lights and electric fans. Also ensure that the laptop is 8 inches from the keyboard, and that the keyboard and receiver have a direct line of sight between them. Then, install the batteries for the keyboard. The compartment should be located under it.
Installing The Keyboard
You will have to insert the CD that came with your keyboard in order to install the drivers. As well, you will have to plug in the keyboard’s receiver to your laptop via USB. Your keyboard will then be detected by your laptop, which will configure it automatically. If you are using Bluetooth, your keyboard can be activated by right clicking on the keyboard icon and pairing it with your laptop.
