    So I have a piece of glitter stuck under the fn key key of my keyboard, I was just wondering how I go about removing the keys. I tried for a little with a screwdriver but it didn't seem like it wanted to go and I didn't want to push it too hard.

    So does anyone know if there's a proper way to remove keys from the keyboard?

    thanks

    Cheers, I did manage to get the key off, but as for the glitter I only managed to push it into the case. Ahh well at least you can't see it anymore

    Try a strong/powerful vacuum cleaner - after taking the key off - there are quite a few holes behind the key board and the glitter is better out than in.

    A couple quick sprays of Gas Duster should blow it out, especially somewhere in the keyboard. :cool:

    Do Not Vacuum

    DO NOT VACUUM computers. It can cause static electricity that can ruin any combination of circuits. I recommend using canned, compressed air. It's only like $5 a can.
