How to Connect a Logitech Wireless Keyboard & Mouse

Updated February 21, 2017

Logitech manufactures a line of wireless keyboard and mouse combinations that liberate a computer from peripherals with cords. The keyboard and mouse operate through a transmitter attached to a computer or laptop via a USB port. Once connected and operating, the keyboard can be placed in the user's lap or held even across the room. The mouse tracks without a cord on any smooth surface. Connecting the peripherals takes less than five minutes.

Place the Logitech software CD-ROM in the computer's media tray and close the tray. The software installation process will launch automatically; simply click each button on the screen when prompted to complete the installation.

Insert the wireless transmitter into any free USB port on the computer or laptop. Wait for the red LED to glow on the transmitter, indicating it is active.

Turn the keyboard and mouse upside down to remove the covers over the battery compartment on each device.

Install two AA batteries in each compartment and replace the covers, then toggle the "On/Off" switch on each device to the "On" position.

Turn over the keyboard and place the mouse on a flat surface. Both devices are now ready for use.

Things You'll Need

  • Four AA batteries
  • Computer or laptop with USB port
