Note: If a key requires software, install it. Some key commands require that you have a specific program installed, such as a supported e-mail program, Web browser, media player, instant messenger program, or graphics editing program. Hot Keys may not function as expected if a modifier key (such as SHIFT, CONTROL, ALT, or WINDOWS) is pressed at the same time.
From the manufacturer
Wireless Desktop 800
Control and convenience are at your fingertips with this compact keyboard and reliable mouse. The strong, reliable wireless signal allows you to choose where you want to work. Plus it’s is easy to use - just load batteries, plug in the receiver and start typing!
Just one wireless USB dongle for the mouse and keyboard. Just plug in and go, no wires, no fuss. There is also a handy stow for the USB dongle on the underside of the mouse - if you need to transport the desktop set around.
Covers the Basics
Windows keys, media keys, calculator, number pad and scroll wheels. This keyboard and mouse set covers all the basics that you would expect, with the added bonus of having the high quality build associated with Microsoft PC Accessories.
Windows Charm Keys
Being our most popular desktop set, it seemed only fair that it received an update to bring it in line with our newer keyboards. So we added Windows charm keys to it, which lets you access the more common Windows 8 features, such as search, settings and app navigation.
The keyboard takes two AAA batteries behind a panel located at the front of the keyboards underside. The mouse takes a single AA battery, again on the underside of the mouse, behind a panel. Note that the panel is where you stow the USB transceiver.
The keyboard has a typical battery life of 15 months and the mouse has a typical lifespan of around 8 months. But you won't have to start counting days - each device has it's own battery life indicator so you will know when you need to think about replacing them.
Depending on your set up, you may feel the need to raise the keyboard up a notch. If you do, this device has two handy stands located at the back that flip out and raise the keyboard.

1 x Microsoft wireless mouse 1000
powered by 2 aa batteries supplied
I just plugged in the very small USB wireless adapter and let my pc (running windows xp service pack 3) find it. I inserted the batteries into the mouse and into the keyboard and off I went.
There is no on/off switch on the keyboard, I guess it must be switched off whenever a key is not being pressed). There are no indicator lights (e.g. no caps lock indication), but that's no big deal. The keyboard has a nice feel to it, and is not at all clunky. It has a calculator button which is quite useful, plus volume control and play/pause both of which I keep forgetting about! Other functions are pretty much the same as any other keyboard.
Underneath the mouse there is a place to store the usb wireless adapter should you wish to remove it. The mouse stays switched on all the time unless you switch it off, and there is a small on/off switch on the bottom. Probably 50% of the time I forget to switch it off at the end of the day. After a month it still appears to be working well, with no sign of battery failure due to me forgetting.
The mouse has just two buttons, plus a scroll wheel which also can act as a button. It has a nice feel to it. I've not changed the settings. The default settings are nice and responsive but not too much either.
The wireless range is pretty good and both easily work at 15 feet away, any more than that and I can't see the keys or mouse pointer anyway!
The speed of inserting characters or responding to mouse movement are no different to my built-in laptop keyboard or mouse.
I only bought these so that my wife didn't hammer my laptop keyboard to death! I was surprised to find it a much more pleasant experience using this new keyboard and mouse. Ergonomically using a separate keyboard is better than being hunched forward to type on a laptop. With hindsight, if I had to buy another mouse and keyboard, then I'd go and buy exactly the same thing again!
This purchase gets full points from me :-)
The wireless USB dongle is pretty big. If you're using it with a laptop, it will stick out and be very vulnerable. I know this because I've just snapped mine off by accident. There are far, far smaller ones on the market. I wish I'd looked a bit more carefully at the pictures.
Also the keyboard does not have a power switch. Although they claim 18 months battery life. Ours lasted about 2 months. I guess it's possible that if you stuff it in a bag and go off to a meeting, every accidentally pushed button drains the battery a bit? Either way, it's a bit odd that the mouse has a power switch but the keyboard doesn't.
Overall, it's probably fine if you want this for a desktop PC, but there are far better products out there for a laptop.
The keyboard has a very thin set of function keys on the top row, with the ESC key on the left. I don't know about you, but I use ESC quite a lot and even though I have quite thin fingers I found myself pushing the fascia above the key more then the key itself. Possibly its because I'm so used to full sized keys, possibly because a thin row of keys is as poor design choice. Otherwise the keyboard is fine, with a good feel to all the keys.
The mouse is also quite good, but the wheel clicks as it rotates. Personal preference I know, some people like clicky wheels, I don't. The mouse has a odd battery fitting - nothing difficult, just unusual as the battery sites perpendicular to the battery access cover! Aside from that The mouse is fine.
Wireless connection is good, no problems. I bought two of these and there are already two Polaroid wireless keyboards and one Logitech wireless keyboard in the house - no interference between any of them when several are being used simultaneously.
I prefer the polaroid keyboard/mouse. But nothing wrong with these. I needed a couple of good keyboards quickly and these do the job well at a reasonable price.
