How To take Keys Off Keyboard  

Step 1: To take off the keycap from a keyboard, gently place your finger nail, small flat-head screwdriver, or small knife under a corner of the key and gently pull the keycap up and away from the laptop.

Step 2: In common situations, the key only snaps out partially. If the keycap is still attached to the laptop, use your fingers to remove the keycap completely and do this carefully

Step 3: Once taken off, you should see the key retainer (scissor-switch) still attached to the laptop with the pad in the middle. If you want to, you can remove it from the laptop. To do so, place the flat head of a screwdriver or a knife’s edge under a corner and gently twist until it pops off.
