    Hey there,

    Short answer: Yes, perfectly.

    Long answer: Yes. I just took my space gray Magic Keyboard out of the box. I plugged in the lightning cable and told my Windows 10 HP notebook to find the keyboard.

    And it didn't. Because I didn't turn it on. (There's a switch on the back, doh!)

    Then I tried to pair again, and it didn't. Because it doesn't act as a Bluetooth keyboard if it's plugged in, it acts like a USB keyboard. I never saw a popup asking for or downloading drivers. It just worked immediately.

    As soon as I unplugged the lightning cable, the Bluetooth search screen immediately saw the keyboard. I hit connect, and it's what I am tying this update with.

    It types very nice so far.
