How to connect a Keyboard or Mouse in Samsung Smart TV?

Last Update Date : Oct 22. 2019

USB Keyboards and Mice

Most Samsung TVs  will automatically recognise the device without any change in settings on the TV. 

To add a USB Mouse or Keyboard, plug your keyboard into the USB port on the back of your TV or One Connect Box, and select the device through the TV settings:

Settings > General > External Device Manager > Input Device Manager

Bluetooth Keyboards and Mice

Connect a bluetooth keyboard to your Samsung TV to make it easier to navigate the settings, use the internet browser, and enter account credentials. While most Samsung TVs are bluetooth enabled, you may need to double check the specifications of your specific TV. Follow the steps below in the dropdowns - the step-by-step guides are divided by year of manufacture. Please note, the following steps are for TVs purchased in India - they can be different for overseas models.
