    I was typing and i noticed it was loose and then it fell off! I have looked at tutorials on how to but they were for the regular keys which were structured different. Look at the pic below (sorry its so blurry my camera sucks),but does anyone now how to fix it?

    Thanks,

    awesome

    Ummm, it is made to come off so you can clean it? Put it back in?

    Make the Metal hooks fit into they sockets on the key, align them up properly, and push the spacebar in.

    its really easy. see that metal lining around the edge of the key? on the short edges right in the center it it should fold open so there are almost 4 little leg/prongs in the air. next align those legs into the holes where the button belongs and them push down on the key until you hear it click into place.

    Just align everything on the bottom of your keyboard right and push down till it pops?

    Most keyboards are ment to do this to clean them.......
