Apple Bluetooth Keyboard Driver For Windows 7 Download Install Update
To start the conversation again, simply ask a new question. So it's a pretty commonly known issue that the function keys on the Apple Wireless keyboard don't do a thing in Windows. Is there some way. I'm using Windows 8. Is there some workaround? I'd really really like them to behave completely normally and use the Windows GUI for volume selection and music controls. It seems pretty sub par that I've payed for a keyboard that really should work fine on Windows but that is missing basic functionality.
I don't know if the problem is being caused on Microsoft's or Apple's end, though I suspect either could fix it easily and make the keyboard work with full functionality on connection without any hassle. I found an install link to the Apple Wireless Keyboard drivers that I believe come with bootcamp and did that but the drivers are now just sitting in Device Manager not doing anything.

It was a cheap charlatan's trick. Apple sure has changed recently. I remember a time when Mac Pro's had tons of expansion capabilities and Mac Book Pros had great graphics. I remember a time when iPad was the future of computing My Apple keyboard is the last Apple product I'm still using But it too is starting to wear on me.
Why can't Apple get even this right? Nov 5, 9: Feb 12, 8: Hello the link you provided says, "Page Not Found". Do you have a different link? Really would like to download that driver to get that functionality.

Let me just say that I'm a newb when it comes to this stuff. I just figured out why W7 wouldn't let me go into dual monitor mode because I was lacking the nvidia driver. But my problem now is that I have the thin Apple Bluetooth keyboard and it simply won't connect. When I add devices, the keyboard is detected and it says "connecting to device" and stalls. Sometimes it says there was a timeout. Can anyone help me?
