    Push 'em back on. They snap on.

    If it's a laptop, and it sounds like it is.

    snap them back on unless. . . .

    you may have broken the 'scissors' that support the keys. If thats the case, there is no need to get a new keyboard, as there is a company that sells individual scissors and keycaps for mac 'books.

    For some reason (specially on the older machines) the delete keys are vulnerable to de-capping. The F2 key though . . . haven't heard of that one.
