Cleaning mac keyboard under keys

The bar slides under a hook along the right side.

To remove the "normal" keys, use a thin, flat tool such as a pair of tweezers or a small screwdriver to get under the key at the bottom-left corner and push the prong out of its hole. Once it's out, pull the key down from the top-right corner and wiggle until the left hand side of the key is detached.

Delete have a stabilising bar as well. To remove the Delete key slide the tool in flat at the right hand edge of the key and run it up and across the top to the top-left corner. This should snap the bar out of its place. The prongs on the Delete key are on the top-right and top-left and the bar on the bottom.

After the metal bar is detached it can be removed as above. Shift, Tab etc. The Enter key has two picnic tables and a metal stabilising bar.

Remove the bar by putting the tool in the top edge and running it clockwise down the right side. The prongs for the top picnic table are on the left hand side as with the standard keys. The lower one has four prongs instead of a two prongs and a bar but they fit under hooks rather than into holes so they can be wiggled free once the other connections are loose.
