I'm looking into purchasing the Apple Wireless Keyboard and the Magic Mouse to use on my Windows 7 machine. I have a Bluetooth adapter connected via USB into the back of my computer to pair both devices, but my questions are:

  • Will both of these devices be compatible with Windows 7
  • Will I be required to download any aditional drivers or software

I recently came across this software called Uawks which is an opensource tool that makes the Apple Wireless Keyboard full compatible with Windows.

So, can it be done using both the mouse and keyboard?

Both work, But the media controls and volume controls at the top of the keyboard will not work without some hotkeys set up. Or that program you were talking about will most likely work.

Yeah that's what the Uawks tool does, it changes the media controls on the keyboard to perform another action within Windows.

I don't see why it wouldn't work perfectly then :)

I'm hoping I won't have any trouble scrolling using the multi-touch of the mouse.
