How to pair keyboard to phone

HP Recommended
HP Envy 32
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Just got this computer.  Trying to figure stuff out.  Wish there was documentation.

I read an article that said if you paired your phone with the keyboard, you could type stuff into your phone from the keyboard.  How does this work?  I paired and the Galaxy S10 said "HP ENVY BT Speaker".  And then "Connected for audio".  I can listen to music from the phone on the computer, but how do I do the typing.  I went into Messages and Word after pushing the paired bluetooth key 1, but typing did nothing on the phone.  

 

Can we really do this?

@mtiede Welcome to HP Community!

 

I understand that you would like to pair the keyboard to the phone.

 

Step 1: Insert the batteries

Insert the batteries, and then turn on the keyboard and mouse.

  1. Insert the batteries on each device according to the guide in the battery compartment.

  2. Turn on each device using the ON/OFF switch located on the back.

    The keyboard and mouse automatically connect to the computer.

Step 2: Configure additional Bluetooth devices

Configure up to two Bluetooth devices for use with the keyboard.

  1. Locate the Bluetooth buttons on the keyboard.

    Location of Bluetooth buttons on keyboard

  2. Press and hold the 1 or 2 Bluetooth button for three seconds until the white pairing light blinks.

    NOTE: 

    You must complete the pairing process within forty seconds.

    Pressing the 1 or 2 Bluetooth buton on the keyboard

  3. On the mobile device you want to pair, open the Bluetooth settings, and then turn Bluetooth on, if necessary.

  4. Under Available Devices or Other Devices, select either HP keyboard bt_1 or HP keyboard bt_2, depending on which Bluetooth button you pressed.

    Selecting HP keyboard bt_1 or bt_2 from the list

  5. When a six-digit code displays on the mobile device, type the code on the keyboard. The pairing light turns solid white when the device successfully connects to the keyboard.

    Typing the six-digit code on the keyboard

  6. To switch the keyboard connection, press the Computer icon or either Bluetooth button on the keyboard to automatically connect to that device.

    Example of the keyboard connection buttons

    If you are unable to reconnect the keyboard to your computer or eitherBluetooth device, reset the keyboard to default settings. Turn the keyboard off then on using the ON/OFF switch located at the back of the device. Any previously paired Bluetooth devices must be reconfigured for use.

That worked.  Kind of cool.  I think I will probably use it, but I have a Samsung phone and can connect up a cable and use Dex to access everything on the phone from the PC.  But, I can see hooking up just the keyboard to the phone to make various replies, because it would be quicker.

I'm quite disappointed with the documentation on this computer.  My previous Dell had great documentation and even made it really easy to replace an SSD drive.  I don't even know how to OPEN this HP Envy 32.
