Use an Apple Wireless Keyboard with Windows, but miss some keys?
Apple has made mappings for the rescue.
- Here is the (most complete) official Boot Camp Knowledge Base article: About keyboards and key assignment for Microsoft Windows
- The most useful shortcuts are listed here on Wikipedia.
- And here is a list of some missing (undocumented) keyboard mappings.
Most important finding for me: shift+F10 is built in to Boot Camp for the Windows context menu key shortcut (option+left mouse click in most programs)
Still, things can get really complicated.
For example, if you want to stop a build in progress in Visual Studio you can hit Ctrl+Break on a PC keyboard. On the Apple Wireless Keyboard you have to hit Ctrl + Fn+Shift+F12. Amazing.
A soft line break (Word, Excel, etc.) is a bit easier: Fn+Shift+Return (since Return is not Enter on Mac…).
A Windows wireless keyboard might be the beater choice if you type a lot.
