Using real-keyboard with WP7 Emulator is very easy.. I actually don’t have to write a lengthy blog post for that.

Press PageUp key on your keyboard and there you go! You can use your keyboard and mouse on the emulator!  Which keys can I use??

Here is the list –

Key Description
F1 Use F1 key on the keyboard instead of back button on the phone
F2 Use the key F2 on the keyboard for the Windows key in the Windows Phone 7
Pageup Enables the keyboard in the emulator when the focus is on the textbox
PageDown Disables the keyboard in the emulator
F3 To open the Bing Search
F7 To Activate the Physical Camera
F9 Increase the Volume
F10 Decrease the volume
