So I use the K811 as the main keyboard for my Mac and also for my iPad. I was also wondering if I can use SetPoint to make it a full Windows keyboard as well.
I know it will work as a "basic" Bluetooth keyboard, but can I adjust any settings on it using Windows through SetPoint? Will SetPoint even recognize it? I know the K811 and the K810 are almost identical as far as layouts are concerned, just the function keys are different.

Our Logitech K811 Bluetooth Easy-Switch Keyboard is only made for the following Operating Systems:
However, our Logitech Setpoint Software for Windows may or may not recognize the K811 Keyboard since its specifically made for Mac OS Computers.
I highly recommend you to use our Logitech 810 Keyboard if you are using Windows OS.
I hope this information was helpful.

True, but I don't want to buy another keyboard to replace a keyboard who's whole job it is consolidate to a single kayboard.
I use my Mac as my main computer but use a windows PC from time to time and it would be SO much easier to just touch a button to swap to a PC. As a matter of fact, I got the K811 working on Windows 8. SetPoint doesn't recognize it, but most of the features work exactly the same. The Command key is the Windows key and the volume up/down/mute buttons work natively as well. I haven't tried any of the other keys.
It might behoove Logitech to add the K811 to SetPoint so I can customize the keys - just a thought. Thank you!

Hello, not sure anyone is still going to be looking at this thread. I know that the K811 is not designed for windows, but it is a bluetooth device so it should work with windows 8 right? I have connected it to both my ipad and iphone, and would like to connect it to my windows 8 pc.
when I attempt to connect it to my windows 8 pc, the computer recognizes the device, and then asks me to enter a passcode. When I attempt to enter the passcode it does not work. I get an error "That didn't work. Enter this passcode" and a new passcode is diplayed to try again.
Any thoughts, other than the k811 is for mac, and the k810 is for windows? I am currently using the apple bluetooth keyboard on my windows box, so unless logitech did some sort of software fail to block the k811, i dont know what is going on.
