It’s been a while since I’ve worked on my Arduino project to create a Bluetooth keyboard. In that time I have been using my keyboard a little bit, but it needs some work, ranging from small tweaks to major overhauls. This post is to remind me how to do the small tweaks.

Now that the board is connected, to view debug output while it’s running you
can open up the Serial Monitor with
