How to re-attach a key to the keyboard

Hi, one of my keys on the keyboard fell off and I kept  the key and the pieces. Would it be possible for me to re-attach it to my keyboard? If yes, how would I re-attach it? Or would I need to replace my keyboard? I would appreciate any help, thank-you

Re: How to re-attach a key to the keyboard

If nothing is broken, then yes. Observe how the other keys are put on. Take your time, and with patience, you'll be able to get it back on. As long as the key and the peices aren't broken, there is no need to buy a new keyboard, only need to put the key back on.

As long as the little scissor assembly is still there and it is not broken you should be able to pop it back on. Put the scissor assembly in the keyboard first and then press the key down onto it. Good Luck!

Re: How to re-attach a key to the keyboard

Yes, you will need to replace your keyboard. You most likely smashed it with your fist once or twice in a rage while attempting to put the key back yourself. These keyboards are the least intuitive objects I have ever seen. As I type, my apostrophe key keeps falling out of its place. It has been like that for 2 months. My grammar is a lot prettier without all of those contractions.
