I cannot connect my Wedge Mobile Keyboard to my tablet PC

Applies to: Microsoft accessoriesWindows 10Windows 8.1

By default, the Bluetooth® Wedge Mobile Keyboard pairs with most tablet PCs through secure simple pairing (SSP) with a passkey. Some tablets, however, may not support SSP well with a passkey. 

To successfully pair your Wedge Mobile Keyboard to such a tablet, use the following alternative pairing mode. 

Pair your keyboard through SSP without a passkey

  1. Press and hold the Fn key at the same time as you press and hold the Connect button located under the keyboard. After 3 to 5 seconds, a small light on the top of the keyboard will blink green and red alternately. This means that your keyboard is discoverable to your tablet within 6 minutes. 
  2. In the search box on the taskbar of your tablet PC, type Control Panel, and in the search results, select Control Panel
  3. Under Hardware and Sound, select Add a device.
  4. When the keyboard is listed, select it, and follow the instructions to successfully pair your Wedge Keyboard with your tablet.
