    I just connected my keyboard. I went to Settings - Devices - Bluetooth.

    Then selected to add a device and selected Bluetooth devices. I had turned on my keyboard and then hit a connect button to get the led to change colors.

    The Passkey poped up and said to enter the passkey on the device and press return, which I did.

    The keyboard completed the pairing and connecting.

    If there is a difference in your process, can you tell us where?

    nope, this is precisely what i did.. the difference maybe is that sometimes the passcode disappears before i can get a chance to read it

    The only two things I might suggest are first, if you have another set of numbers on the keyboard, try those.

    If that doesn't help, uninstall the Bluetooth driver and reinstall. When I uninstall a driver, I use the Device Manager and uninstall the device and check the box to uninstall all drivers. If you have a driver available to reinstall, you may want to do this while offline.

    When the passcode window disappears early, is the LED still blinking colors? Are you taking too much time to hit the enter key?

    My keyboard is an HP K4000 which seems to be very reliable. It may also be a problem with your Bluetooth device in Win 10.

    Sorry I don't know a way to disable the passcode since it is used to assign that keyboard to only one machine.. You do only have the one system you are trying to pair with?

    I think this has been solved with the creators update. I just bought a new bluetooth keyboard and it connects and works. I went into bluetooth and searched for new devices, windows found it, i typed the passcode and windows said there was a problem connecting the keyboard and then it worked, which doesn't make any sense but it works regardless. Anyway, I'd like to avoid this problem in the future so is there a way to disable passcodes for bluetooth devices?

    Hi Ghaeng,

    maybe a visit to the Belkin support pages might help?, I don't have such a device so cannot really help you further!.

    No, that didn't help. And here we are again. Windows is once again blocking my access to my keyboard. ARGH! :mad: I haven't been so mad for many years. It's such a douchebag move to prevent people from using computer equipment they bought perfectly legal.

    HI Ghaeng,

    do both the KB and Windows require a password?, it might just be a case that you need to put in a PW for both the KB and Windows, something like "0000" will do!. :)

    As Wolfie mentioned check the numeral keys that you are using. Num Lock "ON" uses the numerals on the key pad, "OFF" allows you to use the other numeral keypad functions, similar to to the shift. key.
