How to connect a ThinkOutside Stowaway bluetooth folding keyboard to a TabletKiosk eo UMPC/Origami
So far, I’m really enjoying my eo. I’ll have a full review sometime this week, complete with pros and cons.
For now, though, I think it’s my responsibility to document a process that took me 20 minutes to figure out.
Step 1: Press Left Fn+Right Fn+Ctrl on the keyboard.
Step 2: Open the Bluetooth application on your eo. It’s in the system tray. You’ll see what looks like a solar system. Click “My Bluetooth”->”Bluetooth Device Discovery” in the menu bar.
Step 3: Right click on your keyboard in the solar system view. Choose “Pair Device”.
Step 4: Remember the 6 digit code that appears. Hit ok on the dialog.
Step 5: On the keyboard, hold down the Fn key and type digits from the dialog that you already dismissed. Then, release the Fn button and hit Enter on the keyboard.
Step 6: In the bar of icons at the top of the solar system view in the bluetooth app, click on the mouse icon, telling the app that you want to connect to the keyboard and use the input service.
