    If it's a standard desktop keyboard with the plastic keys and keyboard, you may be able to use a flat head screwdriver or butter knife to gently pry the key out of it's cradle in the base of the keyboard, if it doesn't come with little to moderate pressure, don't force it, then your `B` and `N` keys REALLY wont work, but most keyboards the keys pop out rather easily.
    (Also a good prank for some people at work, pop em out and switcharoo.)

    You may also tip the keyboard on it's end and use a Can-O-Air nozzle to blow any debris or particles out of the keys' direct path.

    If it's a laptop, the process gets a bit more difficult and involved, I would not recommend removing keys form a laptop keyboard unless you've already found a replacement on laptopparts.com or something.
