How To Put Key Back On Your Macbook Pro

Share This:

The Macbook Pro is an impressive piece of technology. It’s powerful and reliable as well as portable and stylish. But, as with all technology, it’s not without its faults. One such fault is that the keycaps on your Macbook Pro can become loose or even come off entirely.

If you’re in this situation, don’t worry! Putting a Macbook Pro key back on is actually quite simple. All you need is a small flathead screwdriver and a steady hand.

First, locate the missing keycap. If it’s still attached to the keyboard, gently pry it off using the screwdriver. If it’s no longer attached, then you can skip this step.

Once you have the missing keycap, it’s time to put it back on the Macbook Pro keyboard. Start by orienting the keycap correctly so that the letter side is facing up. Then align the keycap with its corresponding scissor spring underneath of the keyboard and press down firmly until it snaps into place.

It might take some trial and error to get everything lined up correctly – but don’t worry! Just keep at it until you hear a satisfying click when pressing down on the keycap. That will let you know that everything has been put back together properly and securely.

And there you have it – your Macbook Pro should now look good as new! Once again, all thanks to your trusty screwdriver and a little bit of patience.

To do this, hold the keycap so that its plastic stem fits into the corresponding holes in the scissor spring. Once aligned, press down on the keycap with your finger until it snaps back into place. If necessary, you may need to wiggle your finger back and forth for it to snap down onto the scissor spring.

Finally, test out your newly replaced key by pressing it several times to ensure that it works properly. If everything is working correctly, then you are all done!
