Step 2) No Luck? Find Those Drivers
Ah yes, now onto the good part! Since you had no luck just using the often plug-n-play ability of such devices, you'll need to go look for some drivers. The good news? Microsoft has made this remarkably easy, if you can find the right web page to download from. So how do you do this?
- Go to Microsoft's website, www.Microsoft.com.
- Click on the "Products" tab at the top(ish) of the page.
- Go down to where it says "All PC Hardware" and click that. This should bring you to a new page.
- On the new page, look for the "Downloads" link at the top of the page. Click it.
- Now you'll be on a new page that, by default, is on the "Mice" tab. Find the "Keyboards" tab at the top and click that.
- Bingo, now we've arrived at the place we need to be. So what do you do from here? Take a look around the page and find your specific device. If you're unsure what your device is called, look at the box that it came in.
- Once you've figured that out, locate it on the page and click the red link.
