Cleaning a wireless keyboard

I have a Microsoft Wireless Keyboard and mouse. Can I take the keyboard apart and clean it? The keys are sticking and I know it's from junk between and under the keys. I have used the canned air to get some of it out but it won't get it all. Thank you!

How do I remove the keys on a Logitech MK700 keyboard to clean properly?

Try using simple flat-head screw driver. It should remove easily, but i don't think that'll solve your problem.You should pry apart your keyboard with screws and use damp cloth to clean the board, as well as rubber buttons. I'm not so certain about that, but you should try it. Dusan

Keys sticking from spill on keyboard.

Here's a little trick I have learned, from being the type of person that would cause a spill, and guessing that it was something sugary, that is the reason it is sticking, to fix this, get a clean, lint free rag and get some rubbing alcohol and dab just a little on the rag then wipe it across the keybord, pressing down on the keys so it can get down to the bottom of the keys. Do this as many times as it takes to wipe the entire area covered by keys.

Have you downloaded the proper keyboard setup application from Microsoft's site? It is at and you will find the software for their keyboards and mice there.
Look for "Intellitype Pro" with numerics which specify the version and/or date.

You should have gotten this on a CD with the keyboard.

Good Luck,

Taking Apart the Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 1000

There are two hidden screws under the two stickers on the back of the keyboard. Just feel around for slight indentations and stick your screwdriver bit down into it and unscrew. Keep in mind though, this may void your warranty.
