Setting up your Keyboard Case

Please Note – If you just want to type A-Z and 1-10 you can just plug in your Keyboard Case and tap away. (In this case- where is the @ key- its “Shift + 2”)

If you want to use the £, €, “, @ symbols as shown on the keyboard then you need to complete the steps below as Android doesn’t support an external UK / Irish keyboard. If you don’t complete the below steps then some keys will be a bit jumbled up as Android defaults to an American US keyboard.

It only takes a jiffy to do this and you only need to set it up once. Then every time you plug in your Keyboard Case you need to tap 2 buttons to switch from your Virtual Keyboard to your Keyboard Case.
