How to Download the Logitech K800 Keyboard Driver
The Logitech K800 Keyboard is the perfect product for when you need to keep typing in any environment with reduced lighting.
With hand-proximity sensors that initiate the backlight on the keyboard, the device will ensure you do not miss a keystroke during late-night writing or gaming sessions.
The keyboard’s design takes up more space than most and provides enough function keys that include shortcuts to email and volume controls, as well as music playback.
The primary feature of the keyboard is the illuminated backlit keys. You can switch the setting on or off, but when activated the lights will dim automatically when your hands move away from the keyboard and light up again once your hands return to the device.
It also uses a 2.4GHz USB dongle receiver to improve connectivity that also allows you to connect multiple devices to a single receiver.

The SetPoint application enables you to setup and configure after downloading the Logitech K800 keyboard driver.
The software includes the necessary drivers for your Logitech products, so you should download and install the software to gain access to all the device’s features.
