    Last night I a paper folder of mine fell out of my hands and landed on my macbook pro's keyboard.. however when it landed on my keyboard it slid underneath my left shift key and bent the entire key upwards. :(

    I bent it back .. well I tried. It is able to be pressed down now.. it is functional, but it is very crooked looking in comparison to the rest of the keys. I also don't know how much of a beating the hardward took from the bending.

    Is there anyway I can get a replacement shift key or something? Does my first year of apple care by chance cover it? Any advice for fixing my shift key? :confused:

    Google Macbook pro replacement keys, there are some out there.

    Or call apple and tell them that the shift key is broken and need a replacement. you might have to send it in.

    Can I take it to my closest Apple retailer? Could they fix it?

    yeah most likely they do. i know the apple stores have a scrapped amcbook pro for parts and replace keys on the spto, and i know some compUSAs do. if no one around you can do it you can jsut order they key online. good luck

    Yeah, take it into a shop somewhere. Most likely the key is just off a bit and may be a quick fix with no replacement needed.
