Laptops include a keyboard that serves as an input device. Because they lack a numeric pad, many laptop keyboards are shorter than standard desktop keyboards. Some users become accustomed to and demonstrate increased productivity when using standard-size keyboards.
A USB (Universal Serial Bus) port on a laptop is used to connect such a keyboard. The connection of the external keyboard does not disable the laptop’s keyboard, and both can be used at the same time.
Steps To Connect A Keyboard To A Laptop Using USB:
- Choose an open USB port on your laptop. It’s worth noting that most laptops have multiple USB ports on the front, back, and side panels.
- Choose the port that will allow you to work most comfortably.
- Insert a USB keyboard connector into the USB port on the laptop. Insert a keyboard driver CD into the CD/DVD drive.
- To ensure that your external keyboard works properly, follow the onscreen instructions to install drivers.
- After the installation has been completed, you should be able to use an external laptop with ease.
We get it, laptop keyboards can be difficult to get used to. Especially, if you are used to using regular keyboards. But fret not, follow this guide and use your regular keyboards with your laptops without any issues.
