I frequently switch between Mac OS and Windows 10 but my Magic Keyboard seems to struggle to connect even though it's paired with both.
With Mac OS (when switching from Windows), if I click on it in the Bluetooth menu, it highlights briefly but never connects. However, if I plug it in to "charge" and then disconnect it, it will generally (but not always) connect.
In Windows (when switching from Mac), I can sometimes get it to connect if I tap keys during the loading process, but this seems silly and inconsistent. If it doesn't connect during Windows loading, I generally can't get it to connect at all without simply deleting it and re-pairing the device.
I read somewhere a while ago that this is because MacOS and Windows use different Bluetooth Addresses and that you can fix this problem by editing the Windows registry to match the Mac Bluetooth address. However, my Googling skills have failed me and I can't find the post anymore and I'm not even sure it works.
Has anyone else had this problem and can help me resolve it? Thanks!
