I am trying to set up a Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 800. The instructions say press and hold the pairing button at the bottom, but I do not see a pairing button? And I cannot find anywhere online that tells me and the instructions it came with do not say.

    In my case I was asked to replace the Microsoft wireless keyboard because the letters were worn off.

     How can I pair them in my computer?

    You can't.
    Most of Microsoft's newer wireless mouse products do not support user "pairing."  I believe that the Mobile Mouse 1000 is one of these.  Confirm by looking at the pictures in the article linked under "Method 2" in Smittychat's post: [http://support.microsoft.com/kb/838398] 
     If your mouse and transceiver do not have the "connect channel" buttons, you can't pair them.
    For these products, the mouse and the nano transceiver are matched at the factory.  If the transceiver is lost or broken, the mouse can not be made to work.

    The only way to get the keyboard or mouse to work is to have the matched transceiver.
