The Easy, Free Way: Intel Remote Keyboard
If you use an Intel-based computer, then you will love what the company is doing with the Intel Remote Keyboard.
How to Set Up Intel Remote Keyboard
1. Download Intel Remote Keyboard on your Android device or tablet.
2. Download and install the Intel Remote Keyboard Host on your Windows PC. You will need to choose x86 or x64 depending on your Windows. If you aren’t sure what you are running, there are four easy ways to know if you’re on 64-bit Windows.
Important: Make sure your Android and Windows devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
3. On your Android phone, tap the Windows device name.
4. Your Windows PC will now show a large QR code. Just scan it with your Android phone’s camera (following the on-screen instructions) and the two devices will be paired.
5. You’re all set!
What You Can Do
The app is basically a virtual trackpad and keyboard for your computer. You can use it in portrait or landscape mode.
In portrait mode, your screen is divided into the trackpad area on the top and keyboard at the bottom. Intel’s keyboard looks much like any Android keyboard, but also has a Windows button, an Esc button, and the four arrow keys.
What You Can’t Do
One other feature I wish the remote keyboard enabled is a simple but crucial one: volume control. If you have to control volume manually on your Windows PC, you need to click the volume button in your system tray and then click+hold to adjust. That’s not as easy to do with the Intel Remote Keyboard because of its sensitivity. Hopefully, in a future update, Intel can just add the ability to control volume remotely with the Android volume buttons.
