how can I connect  hp 230 wireless  keyboard and hp x200 wireless mouse to my hp laptop by using a single dongle.

@anoopars -- since both devices were manufactured by HP, does one dongle connect to both devices?

If that dongle does not work, unplug it, and connect the other dongle, to see if it supports both devices.

You have two different products, each has its own usb dongle, most certainly not universal
So little chance of being able to use the keyboard dongle, with the mouse, and vice versa!

Since both the keyboard & the mouse are manufactured by HP, I repeat my suggestion, namely, to give it try, to see if HP uses "universal" adapters for their wireless products.

 

Even if there is "little chance", you don't need to spend any money to perform  the experiment that I recommended. Give it a try. I will wait to see you post the result.

Indeed Mr @itsmyname 
I'm not saying don't try, but just  little luck

 

since I have already tried 4 times, with Hp computers
Same manufacture therefore, to mix the dongles of each each keyboard / mouse tested with each dongle, it is a failure!
So indeed little chance, but yes  , never know
