Hi, The F5 key broke off my laptop. I still have the key, but it is just a flat surface key without a way to "click" it back on. Can you suggest how I should "glue" it back on so as not to ruin the key or the PC. Thanks for your help.

The keys on most laptop keyboards are designed to be removed. Are you sure you have broken it and not just pulled it out. If you try aligning it carefully and pressing fairly hard (but not too) it may well click back into place.

Tried to click the key back in place, but no luck. Tried the superglue method and it might hold up for a bit. Thanks for your help.
