My Macbook died and I had to switch to my emergency backup machine, an Intel NUC running Windows 10.

I can use my Apple bluetooth keyboard all right with it, but I can't get a del key. Normally this can be achieved by pressing Fn+Backspace, but that doesn't seem to cut it now. Neither do any other combinations I've seen suggested (Ctrl+Fn+Backspace, Shift+Fn+Backspace, Ctrl+Alt+Shift+Fn+Backspace and combinations thereof).

Also I notice several other keys not working as expected. The < > key is mapped with , for example, and the other way 'round. All the major keys work, though, the keyboard layout in the system matches the layout of the keyboard (German).

How can I fix this?

  • What keyboard settings do you have in Windows 10? – user205310 Feb 6 '17 at 11:22
  • It's the correct layout (German). I found a tool called Keyboard Layout Creator, which is said to come with a "German (Apple)" layout, but it doesn't run on Windows 10 (it needs an old version of .NET that I can't install). – Pekka 웃 Feb 6 '17 at 11:36
  • Maybe you should try asking this in a forum for Windows? It doesn't really have anything to do with Apple, there's nothing you can change about a keyboard. – Tom Gewecke Feb 6 '17 at 15:09
  • @Tom probably the better way to go, yeah... – Pekka 웃 Feb 6 '17 at 15:09
