You’ve probably heard of Logitech if you use a personal computer and need mobile peripherals. If you play a ton of personal computer games or built your own computer, then chances are you might have heard of a few different types of Logitech equipment. One of the most popular pieces of Logitech equipment is the wireless keyboard.
These keyboards connect with Bluetooth so that you don’t have to be attached with a cord. However, things are bound to go wrong every now and then. If you find that the keyboard isn’t responding or doesn’t seem to connect to your computer, then you’ll need to restart it. Here’s how you restart your wireless Logitech keyboard.
Restarting your Wireless Logitech Keyboard
To begin with, there are different types of wireless keyboards, which means that there are different ways to restart each keyboard.
Logitech Unifying Wireless Keyboard
If you have a Logitech Unifying wireless keyboard, then your keyboard is wireless without Bluetooth technology. These have a small receiver that you can plug into a USB port on your computer. You have to use a button at the top of the USB receiver to reset your keyboard. There should be a Connect or Reset button. Press the button on the USB receiver and then press the button at the bottom of your keyboard. If you have issues getting the keyboard to reset, then you can also restart your computer after you reset your keyboard to get it to reconnect after you reset it.
Resetting Bluetooth Wireless Keyboards
The Bluetooth Logitech Wireless Keyboards don’t have a button to reset the device, so you can’t just press a button. You can reconnect the keyboard to your computer as a way to reset your keyboard. This will restore and update your connection with your device. Here are the steps that you need to follow.
1. Hold down the Connect button on your keyboard. You should see an LED light begin to blink. This means that it’s in pairing mode, which means that you’ll be able to reconnect it to your computer.
2. Now, use the mouse to open the Start menu on your Windows computer by selecting the multicolored icon in the left corner of the screen. If you’re using a Mac, click on the menu in the top left side of the screen.
3. On your Mac, select “System Preferences.” On your Windows device, select “Settings” to open the settings menu.
4. On your Windows device, select Devices and then Bluetooth. On the Mac device, select “Bluetooth.”
5. Now, you can choose your keyboard from the list of devices. Make sure that you’re choosing the correct device from the list.
If you have a Windows 8 PC, then you might need to select “Devices” from the Control Panel instead of the Start menu.
If you have this keyboard for your tablet, then you’ll need to follow these directions:
1. Open settings on your tablet and navigate to “Bluetooth.”
2. Tap the “I” to the left of your device on the list and then choose “Forget this Device.”
3. Then, turn your keyboard off and on.
4. Press the Home and O keys at the same time and then let them go.
5. Next, press the Home and B keys at the same time and then let go. You’ll know you’ve done it right when the orange keyboard light blinks.
6. Now, turn your keyboard off and on so that it can reset.
7. Now, pair your keyboard with your device by opening the Settings menu again and enter the Bluetooth menu. Tap on your keyboard on the list of devices and your device will be paired again with your keyboard.
Your devices should be reset and your connection troubles fixed.
