How To Connect Keyboard To Mac
It’s simple to connect a wireless keyboard to a Mac computer if you want to sit on the sofa and type on your Mac from across the room, or if you just want to try out a different keyboard.
A wireless keyboard may be connected to a Mac desktop computer, such as an iMac or Mac Mini, or even a MacBook laptop. When you attach a keyboard to a MacBook, it doesn’t take away the built-in keyboard; you can use either one.

4. Switch to active pairing mode on the keyboard. The method for doing this varies by keyboard, so check the instructions for yours.
