Replacing Worn Off Keyboard Letters

Black keyboard: Silver Sharpies. It's not as neat as the stickers, but cheap. Silver Sharpies are great for writing on black surfaces (putting kids names on stuff, etc.)

diane Jan 14 2017 Thanks for the silver sharpie advice to write in missing keyboard letters. As I had a gold sharpie on hand I used it and it is quite acceptable.

Sharpies wear off on your fingers. :(

I have the same problem with my Dell keyboard. My H,N and M are pretty much gone. I simply find the matching size setting (or close) on my label maker, type each letter with a space or 2 in between and print them.


Then I stick them on the key. They stay on well and I have just replaced the N sticker for the first time in over a year.

Just purchased the silver Sharpie, but only lasts a day or so when you do a lot of typing.

I would try some clear nail polish over the silver Sharpie. That might keep it on the key longer.
