Notes
• The Windows key does not correspond to the function of the PS button to

Precautions
Bluetooth communications
• The 2.4 GHz band used by Bluetooth and wireless LAN devices is also
used by various other devices. Bluetooth devices incorporate technology
that minimizes interference from other devices using the same
wavelength. However, communication speed and achievable distances
may be reduced. Interference from other devices can also stop
communications altogether.
• The data transfer rate will vary depending on distance and obstacles
between devices, device configuration, radio interference, operating
system, software application, and so on. In some cases, communication
may be interrupted.
• Communication range will vary according to whether walls or other
obstacles are located between devices, the material used in walls, the
presence of radio frequency interference and other environmental
conditions, and the type of software being used.
• If wireless LAN and Bluetooth functionality are used at the same time on
the same personal computer, communication speed may be reduced due
to electromagnetic interference, and other unwanted effects may occur.
Maintenance
When you clean the keyboard, make sure to remove the batteries. Clean the
outside of the keyboard with a soft, dry cloth or a soft cloth lightly moistened
with a mild detergent solution. Do not use any type of abrasive pad, scouring
powder, or solvent such as alcohol or benzine.
