    Get Full Use of an Apple Keyboard in Windows / Boot Camp





    The appropriately named “Apple Wireless Keyboard Helper” is a nice free Windows tool that restores many of the Windows-specific functions and keys that are seemingly lost when using an Apple keyboard, including the Delete key, Print Screen, CTRL+ALT+DEL, volume adjustment, function toggle, and more.

    After running the exe, function keys on an Apple keyboard will be assigned to the following Windows commands:

    F3: Print Screen (rather than default)

    F4: Task Manager

    F7-F9: iTunes control

    F10-F12: System volume Control

    Eject button toggles Fkeys/Functions.

    Fn + F key triggers function (useful when in F keys mode)

    Fn + Backspace = Delete

    Fn+ Eject: Eject CD

    Whether you use Boot Camp to run Windows on a Mac or just use an Apple Keyboard with a generic Windows PC, you’ll probably find this app useful. (Despite the name, the app works with Apple’s wireless keyboards in addition to Apple wired USB keyboards.)
