Instructions and Help about how to fix delete key on mac keyboard\

Hey guys today I'm gonna show you how to clean the sticky keys on a low-profile aluminum Apple keyboard this one seemed to have gotten some stuff on it the spacebar at least the other keys seem to be okay this is if someone spilled you know juice or soda or something and then it dried up and it got the buttons all gummy first you need to get the keyboard up and remove that key I'm taking off the space bar it seems to have been the only one that got dirty using exacto knife to get under the the bar and then release the bar from those little plastic hinges do that on both sides and then give the blade a little twist to release it from the back hinges to remove the key and then start cleaning it I'm just using standard disinfecting wipes Lysol wipes or Clorox wipes work great you can use even q-tips or anything that you want to get in there row deep to clean it it evaporates nicely these disinfecting wipes and they don't leave a residue be sure to clean the underside of the key itself too and then I've also cleaned the sides clean the top if there's some grime still stuck you can loosen it with the exacto blade just don't scratch the key bed liner there's a little plastic liner under there and probably shouldn't scratch that so to reinstall a key align it back to where it goes the larger Keys like the shift key and the space bar have these metal bars that fit into the little slots on the side make sure those line up and then get those hinges to all snap it and back to where they were there's little pins on the sides of the hinges so that they all snap and the keys lift up do that on both sides and then press the two front ones in - you might be able to just press the space bar or whatever key it is down and then it will lock the other two where they need to go if they don't quite snap then you might have to go under it again just to make sure that the hinge actually attached itself to the connecting point on the key itself you'll know that you did it right when the key bounces up and down instead of just laying itself flat against the aluminum this one looks great and it's bouncing better and it's not going to feel weird when I hit the spacebar anymore Thanks hope you enjoyed the tutorial let me know in the comments below if you found another way to clean your keyboards.


Delete key on MacBook suddenly works to right instead of to left. How to fix it?
The delete italic key on the Mac works both forward and backward rather then being two separate keys. You make it forward delete by pressing the fn italic button before pressing delete. There is no way to switch the default behavior to forward deleting instead of backward. If it is stuck in forward deleting I would guess there is a problem with your keyboard. Either the delete italic key is malfunctioning or your fn italic key is stuck. I suggest opening up your onscreen keyboard viewer and see what happens when you press the key. If keys you aren touching light up on the screen it likely there a problem with your keyboard.
My delete key on my Bluetooth keyboard has switched places with my (@) and (‘) key. How do I fix that?
Check that your keyboard definition in your system has not changed to the wrong . For example in Australia we generally use the US Keyboard layout as this is the default physical keyboard we have. However occasionally Windows 1 will install the UK keyboard layout which includes different key assignments. If you are running windows 1 go into settings Time and Language and check the keyboard layout you have you have under your preferred language options.
How do I fix a laptop keyboard when the dot key is pressing the ‘Delete’ key (dot key on the main keyboard not the dot key on the numpad section)?
That sounds suspiciously like a software problem to me. If the dot key on your main keyboard is actually sending the same keypress as your numpad Del key then it would make sense that pressing the dot key is essentially the same as pressing the numpad del key. When you turn NumLOCK on and off does that change it between delete and dot? If so then that you answer. In terms of fixing it you may want to look into changing the keyboard layout you have configured on your operating system - is it correct? If youre on Windows you can also remap the dot key to an actual dot key (rather than the delete key) using AutoHotkey. Hope this helps!
How can I assign the fn key on a Mac to a key on a Kinesis keyboard?
I had the same question and fired it to Kinesis. Here's their response No unfortunately that's not possible because the Fn key is an internal function of the laptop and isn't actually sending a keycode to theputer so it wouldn't be possible to assign a key on the Advantage to perform that action.
On my MacBook keyboard, the keys are not working, 6 types 1, y types q, h types a, n types z, and the space bar deletes, etc. How do I fix this?
Thanks for A2A. On my MacBook keyboard the keys are not working 6 s 1 y s q h s a n s z and the space bar deletes etc. How do I fix this? Is this behavior limited to the built-in keyboard? If an external keyboard suffers exactly the same issue there is a corruption in the OS. Under Windows I would suggest deleting the keyboard driver so a new one is installed that should clear the problem but Im not familiar enough with MacOS to know if this is a driver or part of the Kernel. If an external unit works fine your internal problem is not just a faulty connection but a totally messed up keyboard decoder chip that has basically confused left and right halves of the keyboard. This will require servicing. As everything inside a Mac is surface-mount this will not be a DIY thing. If you have warranty act on it immediately. Without warranty this will be an expensive repair. The only cheaper service I can rmend is . Louis Rossmann is a non-authorized repairer who frequently undercuts what Apple charges and specializes in keeping older hardware still operating when Apple says Buy a new one. As he New York-based he might not be ideal for your situation. No I get nothing for promoting him and my name won get you a further discount. Knowing how expensive this can be if you can get by with an external keyboard that will be your cheapest option.
