Greetings to one and all;
:huh: I thank all contributors who made suggestions regarding my previous post. In this Post, I would appreciate methods on "replacing" my current keys, on my keyboard. The reason being, I need "large"
letter type on the surface of the typing key buttons. I have the actual larger letter keys on an old keyboard, but want to pull these buttons off, and replce them on my favorite keyboard. Is there any specific way of doing this,?
Replacing the smaller letter buttons, with the larger letters will make it much easier for me to enjoy my emailing past time.
This may sound like a dumb question, but it is important to me, as my eyesight leaves much to be dersired. Thanks for all input,,,,Castor77 :thumbsup:

Well, as long as the keys are the same size you should be fine to just pop the keys off and replace them. Usually if you get a flat head screwdriver and just pop one key off, you can get the rest with your fingers n just pop em out, then pop them onto the new keyboard. Just make sure that when you pop off your first key, check the snap type. They might be too different type, or the keys on the older board might be to large to fit.

Remember to note also that some of the Larger keys,as spacebar have wire springs under them.

Okay guys',,,, Just want to thank Gavinseabrook, whose suggestion I tried first, and it worked fine. I also thank the Terrorist, and Boopme, for their input, and am pleased to report, everything is now functional on my keyboard. The 'buttons are very easy to read once again.
