What to do when you have a broken key on a keyboard?

Having any kind of hardware malfunction is not a pleasant place to be. Even a minor malfunction like a broken key on a keyword can introduce certain bad feelings, frustration, and difficulty in working.

So, what are your options when the dreaded key on the keyboard breaks? From my point of view, there are three options that could be accomplished in order to continue working.

  1. Replace broken keyboard with the new one

    Yes, the best and most expensive solution, just bite the bullet and buy a new working one.

  2. Replace key with another key

    So you broke some key, if you can replace it with another key which you do not use, this option will work only tho if the broken key is not Space bar, enter or similar with specific shape and size.

  3. Remap key

    use Windows power tools to remap key function to another working key

There you go, three options to continue working with a broken key on the keyboard.
