    Hey all,

    So my ctrl key popped off of my 15" Powerbook and I'm not sure on how to put it back on. I searched Apple.com/support but couldn't find anything. Does anybody know how to pop the key back on?

    If so thanks and if not then well thanks anyway

    I'd suggest googling for tips on cleaning the Powerbook keyboard, since they often describe removing/replacing the keys. Good luck

    I've always just tried to line up the little pegs with the catches on the back of the key and pushed down on the whole thing until it popped back in.
