How to use Keyboard emulation

Last updated: Oct 2nd 2020

Thanks to the Keyboard emulation feature, you can automate the typing of the barcodes in your computer.

Once you scan a barcode from the app, it will be instantly communicated to the server program that, in turn, will take care of typing the barcode for you.

Here you can see an example with a spreadsheet:


The Keyboard emulation feature is enabled by default and will work with any program on your computer, for example: your inventory software, your accounting software, or even a web page in your browser.

To use it you just need to:

  1. Install Barcode to PC server
  2. Install the app
  3. Position the cursor in the text field where you want to type
  4. Scan from the smartphone


  1. In order to use this function to scan Swiss QR Code Bills into an Online Banking Application, one has to configure the server as follows:

    – Tick “Show advanced settings”
    – Under “Enable keyboard emulation”, set “Type method” to “Clipboard”

    I hope I can save someone a few hours of “Trial and Error” with this Information.
