If your Mac keyboard is locked, you’re not alone. It’s a common issue that is easily fixed, as we’ll discuss below. Sometimes the issue is that your Mac’s settings have been changed so that the keyboard doesn’t work as expected. Other times, the issue is that the keyboard has been physically locked.
Check Mac Keyboard Settings
The first step when troubleshooting a Mac keyboard is to check the settings. Follow these steps:
- Open System Preferences.
- Select Accessibility.
- Choose Keyboard from the left menu.
- Uncheck “Enable Slow Keys” if it’s been checked.
Unlock the Keyboard
If your Mac keyboard is physically locked, you can unlock it with a few simple steps:
- Turn off your Mac.
- Unplug the keyboard.
- Look for a small key or lock icon on the keyboard.
- Press the key and hold it for a few seconds.
- Plug the keyboard back in.
- Turn your Mac on.
Clean the Keyboard
If your Mac keyboard is still not working, you may need to clean it. To do so, you’ll need the following items:
- A can of compressed air
- A soft cloth
- Isopropyl alcohol
Start by using the can of compressed air to blow away any dirt, dust, or debris that may be stuck between the keys. Then, use the soft cloth to wipe down the keys and the keyboard itself. Finally, use the isopropyl alcohol to clean the keys and the keyboard. Allow the keyboard to air dry before using it again.
Restart Your Mac
If the keyboard is still not working, try restarting your Mac. To do so, press and hold the power button on your Mac and wait for it to turn off. Then, press the power button again to turn it back on. Once your Mac has restarted, try using the keyboard again.
Contact Apple Support
If the above solutions don’t work, you may need to contact Apple Support. They can help you diagnose and fix the issue. They may also be able to repair or replace your keyboard if needed.
Unlocking a Mac keyboard is easy. Just follow the steps above and you should have your keyboard up and running again in no time.
