Have You Read the Manual Yet?

See the link below:

http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/keyboards/keyboard_mice_combos/devices/3072&cl=US,EN

Although I haven't used this particular combo, primarily, they're wireless devices.. The keyboard and mouse connect wirelessly to the receiver which usually is plugged into the computer USB port. . Both the keyboard and the mouse require batteries to enable their wireless systems to work and connect to the receiver. Sometimes, the USB extension cord is plugged from the computer into the receiver to allow it to be moved to a slightly different location on the computer, say on top, or put on a shelf nearby..

Once setup, you can sit across the room with the keyboard and mouse and they will make contact to the receiver and thus, to the computer.

Hope this helps.

The receiver does plug in as you see in the picture. Then the picture does not show the full cable that you do plug into the PC.

Just wondering. Is it enough for us to tell you this? Or must you find it in the manual?

And that's correct.

So we have their extension cable in the pc with the receiver in the other end.

All done!

There is nothing else to do except PAIR UP the mouse and keyboard if the pairing was lost or put the batteries in. Just to be sure I re-read your posts and can't see what else you need to do.

-> But just in case, if you plug the other end of the cable into the place where the receiver would have gone, that's fine. This means you didn't want to use the cable at all? And since you have the receiver in your hand you could plug that into the PC?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
