I am using the official wired Apple Keyboard with my Windows 7 64bit Desktop, is there a source for official drivers anywhere?

I'm kinda fine with the default setup, but I'd really like the ability to printscreen! I am in the UK, but wouldn't mind switching language if that makes all the keys work in he right place.


I use a Apple Keyboard on W7 Daily.

The key thing is to use a utility that lets you remap the keys.

Personally, I use a little utility called KeyTweak (It's Free!), but there are lots of other alternatives.

This lets you set unused keys to whatever you want - I have F13 set as print-screen, and F14-F19 set as media playback keys (play, pause, etc). It can also let you fix the windows/alt keys so they are in the correct place, if that bothers you.

There are a couple of caveats, namely I have yet to find anything that lets you make use of the "fn" and eject keys. However, the additional (unused) F13-F19 keys compensate for that.


You can find the drivers in the Mac OS X Install DVD (if you have it) at \Boot Camp\Drivers\Apple\x64\AppleKeyboardInstaller64.exe.

If you do not have the DVD, you will have to remap the keys, as mentioned in Fake Name's answer.

To take a print screen (with the drivers installed), press F13 or Fn+F11.

  • You can try to borrow the DVD from someone who owns a Mac. – user6124 Jun 14 '11 at 12:52
