I want to know if it is possible to plug a wireless keyboard into the Samsung Series 5 TV's as it is difficult to use the web browser whilst using the input method on the supplied remote control

While many report success with many models you cut a wide path of an entire series across many years. So I'm unsure. Nod to the Logitech k400 if your TV supports USB keyboards.

Hi there & thank you fore your response Bob

The SAMSUNG Series 5 model number as on the rear of the TV is

UE 40 ES 5500 KXXU

I hope this helps you clarify what is the best keyboard to use

How do I find out if the TV supports USB keyboards

But a keyboard is a personal choice item so I can't tell if the usual Logitech k400 would be best for you.

To see if this supports the common USB keyboard I read the manual.

"A keyboard can be used to
enter the security key via a USB
or Bluetooth connection."

I know it's a lot to ask but the manuals are what I use to see if this can do this. But you changed your question to find the "best" keyboard and since that's a personal choice, I can't help with that.

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?
