    Hi,

    I really like the new Apple keyboard and was wondering if it works with Windows. I don't mean using boot camp, I mean with a PC running windows.

    For work, I really need the scroll lock key and also Prt Scr keys in addition to Ctrl and Alt. Does anyone know if this will work?

    Thanks!!!

    Yes. Print Screen = F13, Scroll Lock = F14, Pause = F15, Alt = Option, Windows Key = Command, Ctrl = Control.

    All USB keyboards use the same signals when you hit a key. And the META keys on F1 - F12 will not work, they will just been seen as Function Keys.
