    Hi everyone:

    I have my old external Apple keyboard from my old Mac cheese grater. This one:


    Can I use external Apple keyboard on Windows 10 PC? [​IMG]


    I really like that keyboard, so I was wondering if I can use it on my Windows 10 desktop PC? (That has no Apple hardware, so it's not a bootcamp type setup.)

    HP 15-r029wm Notebook PC windows 10 keyboard not working properly

    Hi,

    I realize that the keyboard is not working properly. I will try to help you with this issue.


    • Did you make any changes to the PC prior to this issue?
    Suggest you to plug in an external keyboard to check if that helps.

    Follow these steps to launch the On-screen keyboard:


    • Press Windows key + R to get the run window.

    • Type “osk” and hit enter to launch the On-screen keyboard and check if this helps.

    Keep us informed to help you further.

    Thank you.

    • Have you tried updating your keyboard's driver?

    If the keyboard is detected on your computer, try updating its drivers. Follow the steps provided in
