Guide to Pair your Bluetooth Logitech Keyboard

If your Logitech Bluetooth keyboard pairing is not working, you probably need to change the batteries or connect the keyboard to its receiver again. Pairing a Logitech wireless keyboard to your computer allows you to use your keyboard even if your computer doesn’t have an open USB port or if it is farther away than typical USB cords allow. Each Logitech mouse or keyboard comes with a Unifying receiver that can be easily used to connect multiple compatible wireless devices to your computer. A Bluetooth connection may be unreliable or impossible in crowded areas and may result in dropped signals.

If your keyboard is paired with a 5 GHz wireless receiver, the name of your keyboard and the word Connected appear under your keyboard name. If your keyboard is paired to a Bluetooth-enabled PC or device, the Bluetooth icon appears in the lower-right corner of the screen, and you’re ready to use your keyboard. Before you can start using your keyboard, you’ll need to pair it with your computer. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do this.

Two different types of wireless keyboards-

Logitech produces Bluetooth wireless keyboards and wireless keyboards with their own proprietary wireless connection. Because Bluetooth and the Logitech Unifying receiver use the same wireless band, they have similar levels of performance, reliability, and susceptibility to radio interference. They each have their own setup procedures and are compatible with various devices.

The Logitech Craft is considered by many to be the best Logitech wireless keyboard, thanks to its handy input dial and support for Mac. Logitech Bluetooth keyboards are extremely versatile, allowing you to couple one keyboard with your phone, tablet, and PC, then switch between them with the touch of a button. It’s easier to connect Logitech wireless keyboards that use the company’s proprietary Unifying receiver. While they are fully compatible with Windows and Mac computers, they are less so with Linux systems, and they are not compatible with phones or tablets.

Guide to fix if the Logitech Keyboard is not connecting-

In case your Logitech keyboard isn’t working, ensure you’re pairing it correctly. If your keyboard only supports Bluetooth, don’t try to use the Unifying receiver technique. If your keyboard uses Bluetooth, ensure your computer, phone, or tablet supports the technology and that it’s turned on.

Also if you’re using the Unifying receiver to connect a keyboard, make sure it’s connected in, the batteries aren’t flat, and the keyboard is turned on. If the problem persists, consider reinstalling the Logitech Unifying Software. If the software doesn’t recognize your keyboard even though the batteries aren’t dead and the keyboard is turned on, the keyboard may not be compatible with the Logitech Unifying receiver. For further information, contact Logitech.

In case your keyboard is still not working, try the following simple instructions:

  1. Ensure that your computer’s USB port is completely functional before plugging in the receiver. If at all possible, try using a different port.
  2. Use a USB extension cable to relocate the receiver closer to your keyboard if your computer is hidden under a desk or in a cabinet.
  3. Shut the keyboard down and then turn it back on.
  4. Check that the keyboard’s batteries aren’t dead.
  5. If your USB receiver has one, press the connect or reset button.
