When you add Surface Pro Type Cover, it transforms your tablet into a highly versatile laptop.
The backlit Surface Pro Type Cover lets you work or play at any hour. One of the thinnest mechanical keyboards available, Surface Pro Type Cover features a QWERTY keyboard, a full row of Function keys (F1–F12), Windows shortcut keys, media controls and an improved touchpad.
