Installation Notes

Read all installation notes and known issues for important details before beginning software installation.

Your Microsoft keyboard will work with basic functionality when running the Windows(R) 7 operating system prior to installing the IntelliType Pro software. Installing the software is required for full functionality.

Regardless of whether you purchased the keyboard and mouse together in a desktop set, you must run Setup for the mouse and the keyboard separately.
